Hi!

I just love this cam. Even more so now that I have seen the results with my fav film Kodak BW400CN. I picked them up yesterday.

Great result!
I'm not a huge fan of these C-41 dye films but these scans look pretty nice
As for the photographer Wow Carsten you are pretty handy with a Rangefinder
Very Happy

Actually, I think that esp. in this case it is only partly the photographer. At least for the same part it is the film, the lab and the cam.
I love this film, also because my local lab is very good with it (better than with colour negs or even medium format, with MF they suck!). But with this Kodak C-41 film they really work some magic.

And this cam is just great! Andy, I really, really thank you!
With no other of my rangefinders the focus snaps in so well. The Oly 35RC or the Hi-Matic E are very nice, but the Electro 35 just feels fantastic. I am sure that this is the main reason why I was really satisfied with about 12 of the 36 shots in this roll (which is quite a nice outcome).

Nice shots, Carsten. I'm impressed with this camera altogether now. I like the tonal rendtion of the C-41 black and white films and have done ever since Ilford XP-1. Of course, the major thing about XP was the effective ability to have many films in one, depending on what you wanted. I ran much XP at half or twice its rated speed and never had any lab trouble - apart from some colour cast prints, but the negs always came out fine.
One thing I never tried was to change the speed of the film as I used it - it was supposed to be ok and I've no reason to think it wouldn't - after all, in effect that's what I was doing anyway, because the lab didn't know what speed I'd shot each roll at.

Hello and congratualtions for the picture the camera and also the film.

By the way has the Yashica 35 Electro (or any version of it) an indication of the automaticly selected shutter speed ?

Carsten, how much costs a film roll like that (Kodak 400) ? Here they have it for a very short period of time (but under a different name) http://f64.ro/det.php?id=460&pid=6637 .

Thank you very much.

I normally pay about 3,50 for one roll (36).

I'm use chromogenic too, but Ilford XP2 super. I'm not very happy with the pics, It seem to me not be very good for scanner - or my lab is bad-.

Do you recomend that change to kodak C-41 B&W film?


Rino.

Well, to make a comparison one which tried both can tell you that. But also Fuji makes such a film: FujiFilm Neopan 400CN . http://www.fujifilm.co.uk/film/films/blackwhite_neopan400cn.html

If you have a lab that is good woth colour prints, I really can recommend the Kodak film.

Great results Carsten. This camera is a keeper!

I have just received my copy.
I have to say, sadly, I am not much impressed in this first moment.

- I have found out that the shutter is electronic. This means no photos if batteries exhausted. Big bummer. I was not aware of this.

- size/weight: it's a much bulkier and heavier camera than my Canonet. For the purpose of this camera (vacations, occasions where you don't want to carry good photo equipment) I would have preferred it lighter and smaller

- impossible to take manual exposure: unless I am missing something, the camera is limited to automatic exposure mode.

I hope that the photo quality will make it worth it. So far, I have to say that the Canonet is a much better camera, feature-wise.

Well, usually cameras with aperture priority are electronic cameras and do not work without batteries (maybe some shutter speeds only, X and B for example).
I think the major plus of the Electro is its lens and maybe its viewfinder/RF (I'm note sure in this last case because I never had one but saw the results from you).
Yes, it is a big camera (150mm wide vs. ~135mm a Pentax M series SLR , the ME Super even 131mm).

Orio, for great snaps with an excellent lens I use the Electro 35 (and I just love how it feels).
For full manual control I use my FED-3b (I have no choice there anyway. Wink).
