After a while I started photography I had the wish to try medium format. So my photography teacher in school said one day to me that he will borrow me his Yashica MAT 124G. I have plenty of time, I don`t have to hurry, he`ll tell me when he wants his camera back.
So this is a another Rolleiflex TLR copy built from 1970 till 1988 with a sharp 80mmYashinon lens which focuses everything between 1m and infinity, apertures settings from 3.5 till 32, shutter speeds run from B to 1/500. It does 6×6, so it takes 120 (12 exposures) and 220 film (24 exposures) as well, has a self timer, flash mount and a built-in lightmeter. It feels good in your hands, not too light, there is something that gives you a really good emotion. A tripod mount and cable release gives you the possibility to shoot whenever you want to.
I like this camera for getting out and getting away the everyday. For this purpose it is perfect.
I was given a roll of LomoChrome Purple 120 by a friend who was keen for me to try it out since he didn't have a medium format camera. I really didn't expect the results I got when I took it out for a test run on a bright winter's day in London.
