That is a very nice photograph. Simple, elegant, great bokeh.
Thank you

Nice looking Rolleicord!
I've used a very early Rolleiflex MX with an uncoated Xenar. It was pretty sharp, probably every bit as sharp as my Autocord.
Thanks.

I have a YashicaMat 124G and an Ikoflex 1b. Both fine cameras, but very different in handling. The battery cover on the Yash won't come off, so I can't comment on its accuracy. One of the amusing aspects about using a TLR or any older camera is the comments from passers-by. At a local restaurant the waitress said my Vitessa L was "Awesome!" and many folks mention that "Granddad had one like that!" Of course, since I am a granddad I don't worry.

I often mess up shots or gat late to places because of people stopping and talking and asking questions when shooting with old cameras. Worst is the pre-war bellows ones and they ironically command the most concentration to not mess up.

Can't believe I missed a TLR thread since November...

I use a Yashica Mat 124G. People say it's not as good quality as other TLRs but on the up-side it's smaller and lighter than most. I love it, especially when I'm looking down into that viewfinder.

Currently there's a roll of expired Kodak Portra 160NC in it, one of the rolls of 220 I got when I bought the camera. 220 is too expensive to buy new and won't work in my other medium format cameras so when it's gone it's gone.

Here she is:

And a couple of samples of what she can do:

Nice work Jonathan.
The Yashica 124G is a good camera and you're making good use of it.

It is because you linked to a private account that you can access but nobody else. Google wont give me permission to access the link.

Nice! Reminds me of a tree on a rise in an otherwise empty field I often admired. Trouble was it was on a busy highway with no safe place to pull over to take a pic.
