After borrowing Matteo’s medium format camera all summer long I needed to make my own purchase. And after many hours searching for used cameras on all the usual sites like B&H and eBay. Finally I found a great little one on the KEH site, based out of Atlanta. And so I started shooting away and piling up rolls of film. I was using it at very important events, like my father’s wedding, meeting my friend’s new human (above) and reuniting with my 6th grade boyfriend. But I had not been able to process any of the rolls until now so I wasn’t even sure if it worked.
But to my excited delight, it does. And I am in love with it. It is so much fun to shoot, the shutter is almost inaudible and you look really cool with it and therefore get lots of comments from those who see you with it. To add to my excitement, I also bought a scanner a CanoScan 8800. I am still learning how to tweak it but I think it will be fine for my needs.
I am definitely testing the boundaries with this camera though, as I don’t like tri-pods… so I hand hold it at very slow shutter speeds and with high iso film. The results vary… I think you have to be arty to appreciate some of them or just not mind the blur.
