    Does the Mimy only have one shutter speed?

    SWEET. I've had my eye out for a nice MIMY for over a year. Can't wait to see pics.

    I red that the shutter is fixed at 1/60 but I need to explore more on that.

    First images coming out of the Mimy. The roll comes with the camera and there was no information about it, just color ASA 200. Photos are ok but I'll try T-Max 100 and Ilford XP2 400 (Mimy has actually a 200 ASA limit but we'll see)

    At least there's no light leaks or issues with the meter.

    The TMax-100 seems to be perfect for that camera. Very nice image.

    It is the ABRAHAMSSON RED MINI SOFT RELEASE. I bought it @ popflash.com. Great quality and perfect size/shape

    Hello!
    I've just gotten a Mimy S and from what I can tell the only difference is that the S model has a focus ring.

    Are you still using yours? Any tips for shooting?

    I really hope my light meter works but I guess there is no other way to know except for start shooting :smile:

    Did you find out what the shutter speed were? I guess it's single shutter speed both on flash mode and on selenium mode?

    Hey. congrats on your Mimy. It's a beautiful camera but I sold mine; I'm shooting medium format. It's a fixed 1/60 shutter speed. I found that T-Max 100 is the best film for this camera and a yellow filter helps a lot.

    Thanks!

    What are you setting the ISO on the camera to when using a 100 iso film?

    For T-Max 100 I did usually set the ISO to 80 and the aperture 5.6 or 8 with yellow filter attached.

    Shoot multiple setting on one roll and take notes; that helps to understand this little camera.

    You can adjust the ASA on the top-left of the camera. Limited range of ASA but do the the trick.
