This camera was given by my father a few years ago when I just started digital photography. Like every camera I gave him a name… Jimmy cause of the atom design on the camera… It has a 50mm 1.7 and a pretty awesome look!
This camera was given by my father a few years ago when I just started digital photography. It took the dust like 2 years since I discovered analog photography. Like every camera I gave him a name… Jimmy cause of the atom design on the camera… Made me think to Jimmy Neutron, some cartoon we have on tv.
My first time with it was a little bit unsure, was the exposition right? was the aperture ok? The stress of the first totally manual film… I finished the film like two months after. And I was so excited about the result. But was so stressed for the result! And the result was… better than my expectations!
For my first film with it, I was mostly between 1.7 and 5.6. And like 1/60s to 1/250. Oh by the way, the lens is a 50mm 1.7.. Unusual for me after seeing mostly 1.8 lens. The camera is easy to use and as heavy as my DSLR. But most charming.
It’s a normal 35mm camera with a place for some batteries but I took pictures without batteries, all manual and old school way. And I am pretty happy with the result without a light measuring system.
It’s one of the gift I’ll never forget. It launches me to analog photography. It’s a good looking camera and dandy of the modern photography.
