The magical feeling of shooting vintage-cameras

A few weeks ago I made a pretty lucky deal on Ebay and got a really nice vintage-Cam for about 5€.

I was looking out for a small rangefinder-style camera because my girlfriend also wants to take part of the “back to film”-journey. So I managed to get the Vivitar 35EE for just a few bucks. Currently the first roll is exposed and we are pretty excited and looking forward to the results.

The Vivitar is equipped with a 38mm f2.8 lens which is not the fastest, but exposure and aperture is chosen by the cameras light-meter anyway. Some could call this a loss of control but we could call it a “focus on the subject”-cam as well 😉

As there are no results at this point we agree on that it is just a magical feeling to shoot this little rangefinder 🙂
