Today I want to quickly share some photos taken with Fuji Superia X-TRA 400 film and Yashica Electro 35 GSN rangefinder.I decided to try shooting on colour again, however this film slightly disappointed because of colour tones. I reckon that other films such like Kodak Ektar or Kodak Portra could be able to produce better results. I will test these in a couple of weeks 😉
P.S. I am currently preparing an interesting review about Yashica Electro 35 GSN camera with photo examples! Don’t miss it!! 🙂
One month ago I became very interested in Rangefinders. To those who don’t know what it is, check this link. I tried to read as much as possible about them, watched many videos on youtube and finally came up with Yashica Electro 35 rangefinder camera series. I fall in love straight away because of design and some other cool features. At that time I was bored with my normal 35mm SLR, so I tought this is going to be something different. On the ebay I found quite many of them at price for a good condition one about 70 – 80 pounds. I made the decision quickly and after approximatelly one week I received this camera in mint condition. I am including some examples from my first film roll shot on this camera. I used Fuji Superia X-Tra 400 film. While shooting I noticed that it is not that easy to focus while looking throuhg viewfinder, so I thought that if you are doing street photography, maybe the easiest way of shooting is using prefocus system. I will try that in my next roll of film. However, for more static situations it is very usefull toy to learn focus manualy. My next film on this camera is going to be B&W Ilford Delta 400.
Made this inside the local market building and I was really surprised of how camera sucessfully managed to work under low light situation.
