Well kid wasn't meant as an insult and yes it makes me happy to build and shoot cameras. Something nice in having a hand in making what you shoot.
I'm 61 by the way and call my son in law who is thirty kid. I probably offends him to lol.
Times they can change, but that doesnt mean I personally have to like what I see. And the piece of plastic you guys shoot, will last about as long as the car you drive lol. Either you will have to have a new and improved model, or it will be trash....
But like you said whatever makes YOU happy to. The only person either of us has to satisfy in the end is ourselves. And good luck to ya.
Lol calm down guys, i think the picture is cool regardles of the camera, i dont know what it is but theres somthing i like about it ... i say stick with the oldie cams dont forget you would have digital without them
its film that cheap arista 4x5 cut down to 3x4 ... This wa sin a polaroid 160 that i converted to sheet film. Funny it is the only regular roll film model made by yashica they also made a 120 that was comperable to their top of the line roll film models.
this one has a slightly better lens than the polaroid made models. I don't quite have the infinity focus right yet, but it is close.
