My Minolta Uniomat rangefinder is proving to be a fun find. I won't give a detailed review here, but simply say I find it well balanced and a pleasure to shoot. It doesn't allow for as much control as a fully manual camera, but it takes nice shots. These were shot on expired Tri-X on… Continue reading Uniomat

It has lots of possibilities, and I highly recommend picking one up. 4/28 - First day with the new (to me) Minolta HiMatic AF2. I… Continue reading Light (P366 – April 26)
