great lens.killer sharp.great color rendition.meter ok for print film.
very quiet shutter.small size.hand holdable at 1/4 as easy as 1/30 in SLR.
quick focus(if not dark or contra-lit).great flash.
The rangefinder is very uncomofrtabe for me as a SLR user.
The inability to focus on something that is not in the center of the finder,especially at large apertures is a killer.The lack of depth of field table is uncomfortable.
need more experience i guess.
I got a canonet from a guy named Bert Lippel from photo.net.
He just sent it to me,free of charge,paid himself for express delivery from the states and all.
I will try it today woth some film.
Drank some Benedectine yesterday,it has a pleasent allthogh medicinal taste.
worked on them,all are very grainy cause the slappy Darkroom work I did ,some negs are scrached,and the contrast is low,but with the help of GIMP(contrastbrightness despackle)some look decent.
here some of them are posted:
while making my arrangements went to the book store and bought Herman Hesse Demian,Salman Rushdi Satanic Verses and Irving Welsh Ecstasy.
I just finished reading the first two short stories in Ecstasy and it is shit.
While I loved trainspotting(book and movie) these shorts are disapointing.
Shock value over literary talent.Hope the third one is better.

Went around the old city of Beer Sheba for arangements with Anna and took some pics with my pentax k1000 and 50/2 lens.Forgot how smooth it is and how much I missed it using my praktica mtl3 and yashicamat.
Yesterday developed 10 films,sent them for scanning today.
