Can someone tell me, is $225 a good price for a Yashica T5D?
I have been shooting film for a little while but want a nice point and shoot so I am considering this.

it's around the regular selling price on ebay

check your local thrift stores first

I'm actually going to be selling my yashica on ebay in a few days because I bought a stylus epic

the epic is smaller, has a faster lens ( f2.8 ) and is 1/4 of the cost lol

yup!


Oh my god. i took that same picture of the four stair and the supreme sticker. It's funny because i didn't even notice the supreme sticker until i got home ( CALI).

Its funny that you commented that already on the picture and both times you didn't realize it was a five stair instead of four. Not hating just think its funny.


oh damn haha. still shocked about the supreme sticker showing up in the picture, would of never guessed it being their

I experimented a little bit and found that opening the back a couple millimeters gave good results. letting in a little sunlight gives red leaks.

only open it for about 2-3 seconds

use it in moderation or your film will look messy lol (happened to me)

that's opening the back per frame or just once per roll?

opening it once will give you light leaks on about 1 frame

@shanklin what camera/film did you use for the second one? I really like the soft feel the image has. With my AE-1 it seems that I am unable to produce such a feeling because the aperture and shutter speed are so finicky.

I used ektar 100 with a canon ae1p. I went back in PS/Lightroom and did some minor PP and also added a 5% white overlay. Btw, tripods and long exposures are your friend blushing. The longer the exposure, the softer the light. Crank up your aperture to like 5.6/6.3, and then throw the cam on a tripod, and adjust the shutter speed based on your meter readings. Also try shooting during the golden hour, the first and last hour during sunset and sunrise, because that def helps a lot too. In that shot it was around 5, so the light was kinda harsh, but the blinds acted as a diffuser which gave it a nice soft look.

alright. thanks. right now I use the auto aperture for 90% of my shots. would you suggest choosing the aperture by myself?
