I’ve just read the recent post “The Ultimate Film Compact: The Olympus mju II by Illya Reddy”, on your site and it inspired me to send in some photos from a favourite film compact of mine: The Yashica T5 (or T4 in U.S.A.).
That’s what I like about your site Steve, it certainly inspires! I love the variety of posts from you and from other people – from the Monochrom M to the Olympus mju II, and everything in between!! The Yashica is very similar to the mju II in that it is completely automatic and auto-focus. Some will hate that lack of control, but others will appreciate the limitations and just enjoy the experience of pointing and shooting.
At the end of the day the Yashica is a plastic built compact film camera – no frills – but with a great lens and a lot of fun included!
Thanks for your time, Steve, and I hope you post these pictures up!
