A few months back I purchased a Yashica Mat 124G in great condition. But of course a camera can look beautiful, but not work just right! Other than a tiny hiccup on the first image, the camera shoots beautifully and I was floored that I could get sharp images at really low shutter speeds (since I always test these things out on a sleeping kid, because let’s be honest…they are really never still!) Shooting with a TLR is also a challenge because everything shows backwards on the screen. I’m still getting used to that! Here is my first attempt at “square shooting” on film…I really need to shoot this camera more!
