That summer feeling…



That summer feeling…, originally uploaded by photomat-.

It’s getting warm here in Vegas, almost 90*F today. This one was taken last year with the recently departed Yashica D. If you are ever looking to get into shooting medium format film, you can’t go wrong with this as a starter camera. People often talk up the four element Yashinon lens on the later D’s and Yashicamats but the results from a three element Yashikor are perfectly acceptable to me, even wide open.

Often available for as cheap as $30-40 on eBay or Craigslist if you get lucky and a service from Mark Hama will get any Yashica ticking over nicely.
