Yashica Mat 124G Sample Images

Yashica-BW

My last post talked about my new acquired film camera, you can check it out here. For today’s post I wanted to share a few pictures from my test roll that I had a local lab develop and a roll that I shot and developed myself. When I purchased the camera it had a working(original) battery that I verified was giving my the correct exposure. I don’t trust it 100% so I decided to get a replacement battery and keep the original working one as a backup.

For the first roll I wanted to try several lighting conditions. Shooting into the sun, shooting in part shadow and in broad daylight. The camera performed as expected in these conditions and I have to say I’m pretty impressed.  The second roll was more documenting our day in Jackson Hole Wyoming on the 4th of July.

One thing I absolutely love about this camera is it forces you to shoot in square format.  When I printed some of my favorite images my daughter promptly said “hey, these are square like Instagram”.  I quickly reminded here that Instagram is just like this camera, the square format has been around long before Instagram was just a concept.

For those interested I used Tri-X 400 and developed in Rodinal(adonal)

This was my first image taken with the camera, I managed to get a double exposure.  Not sure how that even happened but I liked the result.
