yes more film! ��
kodak colorplus 200iso run through yashica lynx-5000...a rangefinder camera built in the mid 1960s with a fixed 45/f1.8 lens....it's tough to focus a super imposed image through the viewfinder...it has a battery powered light meter with a simple under, correct, over exposure needle on the top plate.....needless to say I have a small camera collection and starting to run film through bodies I have gotten in "working order"

The rangefinder "patch" is often faded on these older cameras. The common fix was originally devised by Rick Oleson several years ago and involves a small bit of black tape or a dot applied with a black Sharpie.

Brighten your Rangefinder

Once I discovered my local photo shop had reopened with proper precautions, I was able to get film developed.
Unfortunately, 2/4 rolls I gave them were expired 800 film, which does not age well, so I got two rolls of underexposed mess (from the ZX-L and the Nikkormat)
The roll of 120 I ran also was terrible. I think my Ising isn't focusing as it should...

But one roll was Ektar 100 in the KX, which looked great (aside from the usual operator errors that crop up...
Most of the roll was shot on the Pentax 35-70 f2.8... apart from bokeh that's a bit busier than I'd like and the obviously garbage ergonomics, it's a really good lens.



Pentax KX, Pentax 35-70 f2.8 AF, Ektar 100
