its the Yashica Electro 35 GSN rangefinder!! it was made in the 70s. finally ive got myself a rangefinder. whats cool is that it has a f1.7 aperture, thats fast! it uses film too!! oh and its also vintage :D
if you look carefully, you can actually see the prophet muhamad in it. you can also see jesus, satan, mecha-strisan, budha and all the other cool south park characters!!
now just to let you guys know what this camera does. its an old school film camera.
yes it uses that little rolls of photographic film. no silicon sensors in this camera. you even have to manually wind the film after each photo is taken, and once you've spent all the pictures, you gotta manually rewind it back into the roll too!
besides that, this camera has a minitar 1 32mm f2.8 lens. this lens suposedly gives super high saturation and contrast, which i have no idea how true that is. the lever on the right of the lens is the manual focus setting. this camera has 4 zones for focusing which are 0.8m, 1.5m, 3m and infinity.
the LC-A+ also has a hotshoe, so you are able to attach an external flash onto it.
some of the things that makes the LC-A+ different from the original LC-A is that it doesnt have an aperture setting and the LC-A+ has an added lever for chreating multiple exposures on one frame.
oh and it also has an expanded ASA setting to 1600 and can take the wire release and some other acessories like the fisheye adaptor.
all in all its quite a cool camera. it was originally a russian camera created by the soviet union. well actually it was a copy of a japanese camera, the cosina CX-1. but now production has been moved to china becuase the LOMO company in russia shut down their camera division a number of years ago.
so this camera like all cameras being sold by the lomographic society international, has super inflated prices.
anyway i think you guys are super confused and dont understand what im thinking. if you want to know more, look up LOMO LC-A+ on google.
btw, i would show you some of the shots that i took, but i'd have to get the film scanned into the computer, which costs money, so forget that.
