One of two loaded with film:
Fujifilm Superia 200 36 shots
Meanwhile I also bought a motorwinder Chinon PW 530
The Chinon adventure starts.
Found on Youtube :
I bought two new analog cameras,
Chinon CE-4 with auto Chinon MC 50mm f1,7
After a long time of testing different brands and types for my classic camera project,
I stumbled upon this kind of exotic known camera brand.
And in particular on this beautiful black electronic Chinon CE-4 with Pentax mount.
I hope i can test them soon, as i am in the middle of test shooting a Canon AE-1.
The more I look at them and there color combination of black, green and orange, the more I find them the most beautiful cameras ever build by any brand.
They are small, light, and have all features a photographer needs.
What do you want more ?
I think I want to keep one for myself.
