    It's a good camera and you'll love it. Just find some 120 size film, load it and start shooting. You'll need to use it with a hand held lightmeter.

    Let me know if you need instructions how to use it, there are a few free manuals on the web.

    I've got a Yashica A and I guess my opinion has already been said, but just get out and shoot as much as you can. I just processed my first roll of black and white from it and the results were great. If you use the sunny f16 rule, your shots should come out just fine.

    YoungPic, you don't need a darkroom to develop film. Just the chemicals, a tank (no not a Sherman), some measuring cylinders/jugs & and a thermometer. Darkness is only required when the film is going into the tank; this can be done with a changing bag or even in the closet.
