Today I loaded up the new-to-me YashicaMat with HP5. It arrived last week and I spent a bit of time cleaning the dust out of the corners and just getting to know it. The shutter timing seems to be right. The aperture seems to adjust well. In short I think everything is fine.
I went outside just to play around with it, nothing serious. When I popped up the hood and looked at the focussing screen I was stunned. I had forgotten how wonderful of a view that is. I played around taking some close portraits of my daughter and was in awe of the '3D' effect on the screen. She was captivated by it as well, to say nothing of how 'cool' the camera is.
I can't wait to develop this strip and see what it looks like.
