    Check it out! First photos from my Ansco Anscoset!!

    This is the camera that re-ignited it all...the one that got me back into film photography...I finally finished my first roll and had it developed...very happy with the outcome It was my first time using a rangefinder (ever!!) and my first time shooting film since the late-90s, so the pictures are not stunning...but they all came out exposed perfectly, they're sharp, tons of detail...for a 50 year old camera, the old girls doing a splendid job!





    My parents



    And my lovely girlfriend on a couple of hikes





    Next up, I'm going to load up my AE-1 Program with film, and my Zenit E is loaded and ready to go

    Cheers,
    Tamas

    Looks great!

    Well done (to both you and the camera)

    Good pictures. I like them all. You might have flare in your first pic. Check for light leaks too

    Thanks everyone for your kind words! It's funny because I have 2 30Ds and a G9 (as well as various more advanced SLRs like an AE-1, AE-1P, Ricoh XR-P Multiprogram, etc) and yet I prefer shooting with the Ansco over pretty much any of them...

    Pumalite: Thankfully I think it was just flare I shot it down low up towards a bright sky and towards the sun...none of the other pictures seem to be affected in the same way, so I don't think it's a leak

    Good morning, LowRiderS10;

    Hey, if the Ansco Anscoset (Minolta Hi-Matic) was good enough for Colonel John Glenn (pre-Senator days) to take with him in the Freedom 7 Capsule in the Mercury Program, why not? Have fun with it.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    wow, I didn't know about that Ralph...thanks! I just did some searching on it and apparently John Glenn's camera was Ansco-branded as well! Well this just made my day (I know, I'm a big geek haha) Thanks!

    Pumalite: very nice...I really like rangefinders in general, but something about the Ansco/Minolta looks and feels perfect to me...
