Got the RTS. Looks OK.Will load and shoot soon.
I now have a collection of film cameras ... Sometimes I don't know why I continue in film ... been getting frustrated...equipment,falty film,cost...
but...I gotta remember ; ...fun.!I tested today...and two cameras bombed out...
my first Contax bombed out,
frustrated trying to have my Bronica "S" or S2a,my 521 leaked light,
spent so much on my Canon FTb outfit...and the camera bombs out...
sometime...more times than not ,I struggle with film to computer quality.
I feel like that saying ; "A day fishing - catching nothing,is better than a day at work".
I feel like I want my shots to ... be good,have impact,excitement,etc.
,and what I have is - I'm struggling with equipment and film - can't get past basics.
It's easy to say..."Oh clam up - and just go do digital."! "!You haven't even mastered your digital lenses yet...or even USED them much at all !!!!".
But,as B+W is special,as square (format) is special...so are film cameras and shooting film photography.
I'm actually thinking ; sell my Canon lenses or buy another Canon body.
But there is a gray area too ; do nothing yet,another body will come.
I checked the lenses AND BODY -and all seems to be working RIGHT.
Well - good night .!
