Yeah - Yashica made some fine cameras back in the day. Now someone has bought
the rights to the name and is set on making it a laughing stock. Or maybe I'm a
bit too old to appreciate this camera's coolness...
It will open up a market for artisanal hand crafted pixels.
It's interesting how in the video the same woman is both ostensibly the
photographer and also the model. I really expected to see a guy with a
hipster beard and a fixie bike. At least she had the hipster cigarette
The video did have the crappy artsy color balance. I noticed how it was
all about the experience and not the image quality. I will note that the
canisters do make the settings easier, since you can't worry about ISO
etc. you don't have to worry about them. And there is a precedent for
the lack of a screen, doesn't Leica do that on one of their cameras?
They could advertise the same rear screen as a Leica that costs several
times as much. I wonder what the point of the winder is? I guess just to
replicate the film experience.
Snark aside, I have noticed that in many ways I much prefer the
experience of shooting with a film camera. Photographing with my Argus
is an entirely different experience than with my DSLRs. I haven't run a
roll through a film SLR in ages, but being forced to think about
everything in advance, and whether each press of the shutter is worth $1
does change the experience. Be that as it may, there are many reasons
that I shoot digital and haven't gone back to film.
