The Yashica Mat-124G

Film photography is still one of my favourite types of art. I own a few SLRs and a small Olympus 35 RC rangefinder camera but I never had the chance to play with medium format. I got a good deal on a Yashica Mat-124G and developed the film myself in my bathroom. Like always.

I was blown away by the quality of the photos. Even with all the dust on my Epson scanner and all the little scratches I made during the development process. It is something different than small film.

In 2019 we spent three month in a hospital and it was there, when I first tried the Yashica.

The lightmeter is broken and I try to meter with my iphone which works surprisingly well. However, it is still a long road to deliver a proper quality image.
