Sorry to hear about your camera problems. There's nothing worse than going out with a camera, shooting loads and then finding out there was a problem and some or many shots didn't come out. That second shot is absolutely perfect - it really captures the moment.
Thanks. Well, I wish I'd have got the subject's hands and the feet of the background people in the frame. I'm out of tune with this rangefinder.

I saw the hands and feet in the viewfinder but when I'm shooting quick I tend to not notice the frame lines and that's where the cut off is. And those frame lines are only approximate too. So you need to give a little more space than you expect just to play it safe.

Sorry to hear that as well. Don't suppose any survived with "artistic" inconsistencies?

I have that same or similar problem with RFs in general - great for casual, quick shots, but for good composition I'm much slower with them. I think it is both tracking the framelines, as well as a more "clinical" style of focus, both of which sort of take me out of the shot so-to-speak. More of a left-brain style of operation perhaps, as opposed to the lens-reflex what-you-see-is-what-get affair. Or something like that perhaps, for me at least.

I finally have access to my scanner and a bit of time. I decided to start with a roll of FP4+ that I shot to test the EOS 300 and Tamron 28-75/2.8 I bought for €25.

Here are some shots taken in my neighbourhood, in an area with a lot of graffiti.

This, suitably cropped for cover orientation, would make a great cover photo for a World War 1 or prison escape novel. The wire is just beautifully in focus, the bokeh makes the background irrelevant, and the grain is just right to set the mood.

I have a Rebel Ti with tamron 28-80 4/5.6 kit zoom that I haven't used in 5 years, I have no complaints about IQ on the zoom, but my m42 primes are faster, and I prefer the handling of the heavier, metal manual bodies. Also they don't need the expensive batteries.

Yes, the modern cameras are much lighter and flimsier. Overall I enjoy the older, metal-bodies manual ones and their primes but sometimes it's nice to use a good, more modern film camera. I often have to decide between the two styles before loading a film, usually the modern ones lose.

Many thanks.

Here are a few more from the same roll.

EOS 300 & Tamron 28-75/2.8.

My niece's toy rabbit and the flowers she brought me one afternoon when I took her to the park.
