Flexilette

 

A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of all the destruction-construction going on in the house, a moment on eBay, and this little camera caught my attention:  a twin lens reflex 35mm camera.  It is an Agfa Flexilette, made only for one year (1960-61 I think).  It was a bit of a bidding war and I was really happy to get it.  Unfortunately, I haven’t had much time to play with it, but it is loaded up with Lomo 100 and I hope, as the domestic chaos winds down, I can get it out to see how it does photographically.  Mechanically, it’s smooth as silk, with large knobs and dials, which make it work very nicely.

Oh, BTW, I took this picture with my new tablet – an iPad 2018 (I had to replace my dying Samsung) on my new floors in my still-empty studio!

Shadows & Leaves

When I scanned the images from the first roll of film through the Yashica D TLR, I think I scanned them at 3600.  They are BIG!  I wanted to see the details capable of the camera and the lens, and I was honestly really, really pleased.  Here on offer is a portion of a picture I took of leafy plants nestled in the dappled sun beneath an oak tree along the Moonrise Trail.  The Yashinon lens does a superb job altogether.  This is about 1/10 of the original picture.
