Making the move to a rangefinder.
I've decided to switch to a compact film rangefinder from the 70's. I think it's definitely better having one of these cameras around with you all the time, rather than sighing about my chunky and heavy slr being in a camera bag at home.
I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the information out there, i've read quite a few threads about this but can't quite find the information I need.
My specifications would be:
- Under $250 (This is my first rangefinder so I would like to start off cheap!)
- Aperture priority and manual over ride
- 1.8 (or 2 if impossible)
- 35-50mm lens
- High IS0.. preferably 1600. (I like to push 400ASA film two stops). All I can seem to find is a top of 1000?
- Low shutter speeds
- Light-weight and small!
I've heard about the Yashica Electro 35CC (Aperture priority/1.8/35mm) however I think it can only go to 500 ASA?
I think my main problem is finding rangefinders with Aperture priority..
I would really appreciate your help.. I'm lost in a sea of cameras!!!!
