Hi,

Here's another old print. Taken on a Yashica Electro 35 Rangefinder somewhere in Sungei Road in around 1988. If I didn't remember wrongly, the thing has a non-removeable 50 or 55mm f/1.7 or something.

Shot on one of the Ilford films (can't remember FP4 or HP5, don't have the old notes with me). Printed on Ilford Multigrade paper, chemically sepia toned.



Comments please.

Regards
CK

To Streetshooter:

going by these, i think we need to add more grain, and grossly oversharpen to bring out the grain :p

Hey, this is REAL grain. But this scan is oversharpened. Just dug out the negative. This is Ilford FP4, ISO 125. On the other hand, shouldn't have this much grain. Can't remember what I did already. Negative is a little on the dense side. Could be slight overdevelopment.

Sorry to dig up old threads, but I was searching for rangefinders, and came across this :D

The Yashica has a 1.7 lens :thumbsup:

I've got the Yashica Electro GSN... but the finder has gone moudly... can see green green stuff when you look through. :cry:

CKiang, you know where I can get it serviced? And how much? Thanks... :)
