@northwest http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/collectors-corner/131144-batteries-yashica-electro-35-gsn.html @legitshit depends on how much you are willing to carry. i never shoot with my slr but it does offer more control.

with the stylus epic you dont have to worry about focusing or settings. If you want a little more control you can get the xa

it has aperture priority and manual focus (rangefinder)

nice. i was worried that the expired gold that i got was stored improperly and would look like shit but despite being a little grainy im pretty stoked on the results. i get light leaks by taking the battery out of my camera and opening the back of the camera up like a millimeter or two for a fraction of a second. took some practice before i started getting it right consistently. ive ruined a few frames by keeping it open for too long.

You can do it with any type of light except of course that light that is used in a darkroom. Most people do it in sunlight because it gives it a reddish orange tint rather than more white which I and a lot of people prefer.
