Vegas for the Weekend

Yeah! Going to Vegas for the weekend! The only thing bettr is actually being 21… Why couldn’t we wait for a few months!

Ok still, I wanted to relax on this trip but still take some cool photos so i packed light, Bringing only 3 small cameras.

– My Canonet with some 800 speed film for night time shots. Don’t know if this makes any sense but I don’t really get night time photography. Wanted to test the petris 7 at Vegas but realized that its ISO only goes to 400.

– The Diana Mini with Ektar 100 and 200 speed Lucky film for the day. Wanted this toy camera so bad and got it for Christmas from my lovely sisters! But was disappointed by all its problems and after 2 rolls, never picked it up again. So trying it out again with bettr film and bettr knowledge on how to use it.

– And last, my EP-1. Mostly for my daily photos and some videos.

Ok then byebye until next week with some photos!

Yashica Mat 124G and Pentax K1000

Hey guys, just got two new cameras!

The first is a Pentax K1000 which will be a fun SLR to play with.  Trying out a roll already and it feels pretty good so far.

The real find though is a Yashica Mat 124G! I love TRLs and I only have a Yashica A and a Blackbird Fly (doesn’t really count does it?). So since, it just past my birthday I decided to treat myself. Unfortunately the light meter seems to have some problems when changing aperatures. It’s fine but I really didnt want the hassle of carrying a hand light meter (an unreliable one at that) anymore.

OK gonna shoot some film with these and post some photos latr!

Kodak Portra 800 with my Nikon N8008

Taken months ago with my Nikon N8008, with one of my favorite films, Kodak Portra 800. This is a start of a project I was working on about summer in suburbia but it didn’t work out because it was in the middle of march. But I might try again now that its hot.

Most are of my friends just goofing off. My friend Yee Yang is almost in all of them.

Kodak 400 VC Film with my Minolta SRT 200

Taken a few months ago with my Minolta SRT 200 for my photo class. Been trying out a lot of different professional films for the first time.

I spent this day hanging out with my friend Steven, shooting my new film with my slr while Steven played with my Blackbird Fly. He was holding that camera and looking through it the whole time, but to my surprise, he only took one picture.

The guys and their cars…

Just playing around with some Kodak Portra 800. Looking for some good night film so I decided to try it out for fun.

Just ordered some Polaroid PX 100

Ok I just ordered some of the Polaroid PX 100 Silvershade film for the SX-70 and wow, expensive. $21!

Before when they were running out and had a limited stock, I could understand the price of $25, but isn’t the new film suppose to be cheaper now that they can make it anytime they want?

I’m just going to infer/hope that this is only because they are releasing the film as “First Flush” editions. After the first wave is done and they get the sales number I really hope cheap Polaroids will be available. Or is this a foolish dream?

Anyways I just bought two packs, which seems adequate for now.

Latr guys

Minolta SRT 200

Hey guys, here’s a SLR I picked up from a thrift store. A Minolta SRT 200. I don’t know much about Minolta in general, but the lens it came with is ok, not as sharp as my other ones but good enough I think. This camera has an odd shutter release that pulls a shutter thing (?) over when cocked and releases it when shot. It’s hard to explain but because of that, it feels really different when shooting. My friend says it makes the camera sound cheap, but I think it gives it its own charm.

Also this camera has some pretty good vignetting, just look at the first photo.

I ran some Fuji Superia and some Ilford B&W and here’s what I got.

Overall it’s a fun camera to use when I’m bored using my Canonet or DSLR.

Latr guys!
