    My experiments with old film cameras continue!

    Yashica Lynx 5000 - it's a fixed lens rangefinder with a 45mm f1.8 lens from the mid 60s:
    F1.8 on 35mm gives a narrow depth of field!
    Acceptably sharp!

    But the camera that has really grabbed me is a pentax spotmatic sp500 from 1971-1974. I'm using it's 55mm f2 kit lens and it truly is a thing of beauty
    Luminous
    A reflective moment
    There but for the grace..

    I'm really having a ball with film at the moment - if you've not had a chance to play with it before, there are loads of good, cheap film cameras going second hand!
