In this new episode of Mark’s Photography Spot I show you the various vintage film cameras that I use to make photographs with. I have a Rolleicord Va, Yashica GSN and Olympus Stylus. The cameras use 35mm and 120 (medium format) film. Film photography is alive and well and I think all photographers interested in improving should try their hand at shooting and developing film. Here’s some more info on the film cameras I currently have:
1. Rolleicord Va-This is a medium format TLR (twin lens reflex) camera that was produced sometime between 1959 and 1962. The camera uses 120 film which gives a negative of just over 2 inches by 2 inches. I purchased this camera from a seller on eBay and have been very happy with it so far.
2. Yashica Electro 35 GSN- My 2nd film camera purchase is this circa 1973 35mm rangefinder camera from Japan. it has a built in light meter and a super-fast f/1.7 lens. I plan on using this camera for street type photography as well as lower light imaging due to the fast lens. The camera takes great images and I’m looking forward to using it a lot in the upcoming year.
3. Olympus Stylus Zoom- This film camera is a fully automatic 35mm camera from Olympus. I purchased the camera in 1993 or so and last time I used it it worked great. I think it will make a great point and shoot film camera.
That’s about it for my film cameras, for now. I will do a more in-depth video on each of them at some point.
