reflected self-portrait with Konica Auto S3 camera and inside out hat (square crop)
I set the shutter speed to 1/15th sec in order to get enough exposure, but just about managed to keep the camera still enough.

Cherry Pickers
The camera was simple and intuitive to use, but I did find that the plastic strap was very stiff in the cold weather, and kept poking me in the eye!

The end of year seven!

25 cameras, 25 hats
Well, another year has gone by, this is a selection of some of the hat/camera combinations from year seven.
I'm pressing on with another year, with plenty of cameras still to try out.
Happy New Year!

Week 366 - Konica Auto S3

Konica Auto S3
The Auto S3 is a very compact 35mm rangefinder camera, I also have the S2, which is much larger. This one came from a charity shop for £5, I've loaded it with Agfa Vista film from Poundland.

sheep skull
The lighting were was very simple, a miniature LED torch placed underneath this sheep's skull. The film is Rollei Retro 80S, and the exposure here was around 20 seconds.

four manequins (panoramic crop)
These manequins were quite happy to keep still for the 30 second exposure needed, I've cropped the image slightly after scanning.
