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!

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!
