    Carguys 35mm film erudition

    Blew the dust off my Minolta XG1 a couple of months back. Since then I added a Minolta X-700 SLR and Yashica Electro 35 GSN Rangefinder to the photo shelf.

    Shot three rolls of 35mm film thus far, sharing the results below.

    Re: Carguys 35mm film erudition

    I was born shooting Minolta, and Yashica. Made delivery interesting.

    The biggest drawback the elder cameras have is lack of image stabilization, so a tripod can really help. That, or fast glass or fast film. I am blessed that I work near a camera store and also a CVS that still sells film. Kodak's 400 is pretty good but I prefer Fuji's Superia 400. Seems to have more vibrant colors, to me at least.

    Congrats on getting back into film - it's FF without the "upgrade" path we all seem to have drilled into our heads.

    Thanks. It's been relatively cheap also, the most expensive part is processing/scanning. The opposite of life in the digital age.
