Alright, APUG, I know most of you may not care, but somebody will.
This has been quite the saga, starting with my doubts on ordering from Japan, and my not-so-surprising amazement when I finally handled this camera. Today, I have my first roll developed and I'm currently scanning (go ahead and hate me for scanning.)
This camera has completely taken my breath away. Somebody on this forum said, "Make sure you're sitting down when you see those negatives." - They were not kidding!
I was out on the lake again today, burning through my 5th roll on this camera, and I remarked to my girlfriend, "I don't even know if this RF is properly aligned, or if these images will come out properly exposed. I haven't seen what this camera can do." - Needless to say, I picked a winner. I have big plans for this camera, during the summer, especially. This first roll was Fujifilm 400H Pro, which I sort of regret, I'm not crazy about the blue/green saturation of this type, though it works well for certain subjects. I shot some Ektar, and a roll of BW today, so I am excited to see more results. This lighthouse shot is just the very beginning, but a good example of how sharp this thing is. I am completely obsessed with this camera, and I couldn't have found it without all your amazing advice!
