Yet Another Camera
I went to a party a couple of nights ago, and a friend that follows this blog asked “how many cameras do you have?”. I had to guess, +/- 10 since I have not counted them. Lots of small cheap and often nasty point and shoot film cameras.
Today’s post is the product of my latest acquisition, and while cheap to me it is not nasty at all. I was given this Canon AE-1 Program with FD 50/1.8 lens, which is why I can say truthfully it is cheap. There is a lot of information about this camera on the web, so I won’t bore you with the technical stuff this time.
I have run the first test roll through the camera – the light was awful so most of these pictures are not nearly as good as they could be. The rest of the roll is part of my 52 Rolls project and can be found in a post called A Camera Gift; that post includes a couple of nice pictures from the Ross Bay cemetery, more and better from the storm drain and some of my cooperative son indoors.
