Happy SUNday! – nothing fancy, just home

A simple Thanksgiving dinner with family. This is as fancy as we get!

The plates and glasses are my mom and dad’s passed down to us. I believe they received them back in the early 1950s. It’s a very small way to have them share dinner with us.

A mess but it’s what we like to have for our Thanksgiving meal.

I hope everyone had a chance to spend the day or weekend if you were lucky with some or all of your family and friends. I can remember more than a few that we weren’t able to do that and are thankful whenever we can. Thanks for stopping by, Chris, Carol, and Tim.

Happy SUNday! – fun with Fuji

ISO 800 color film was made for shooting in full sunlight to be able to take advantage of the film’s full capabilities.
Image trickery.
I’ve decided to sell my Fuji. It’s available in my camera shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com

The Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 is one of my all-time favorite instant film cameras. The large 62 x 99mm picture is a format that I more easily relate to (6 x 7cm). The fill-in flash feature is nice since it “fills in” shadows in bright sunlight which is the best way to take advantage of the color and sharpness of the film. I haven’t used the Mono Chrome film yet so I don’t know how well it actually performs. Thanks for stopping by, Chris

Happy SUNday! – Minolta Madness

Another beautiful Minolta has found its way into our collection and to be quite frank, we have more SLRs than we could ever possibly shoot with or even display. So, this lovely Minolta X-700 MPS is available in our camera shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com

Minolta X-700 35mm film camera set.
Minolta X-700 MPS (Minolta Program System) with sharp Rokkor MD 50mm f/2 lens.
This Minolta can be shot on full automatic exposure, aperture priority, or fully manual where you set both the shutter and aperture.
The X-700 is super easy to use and to me is lightweight enough to carry around all day.
The full-color brochure (over 40 pages) is filled with charts, tables, lists, and features of every Minolta lens and accessory available. The brochure is rather har-to-find and it’s included with the camera.

The Minolta X-700 is truly the heart of a complete system (MPS) of data backs, motor drives, flash units, lenses, focusing screens, close-up and macro accessories, meters, and cases. It’s one of our favorite 35mm SLRs to use. If you’re interested, pop on over to our shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com which is hosted by Etsy. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris & Carol

Happy SUNday! – fun finds

It’s been a busy and productive week meeting with clients. Lots of photo gear to “play” with and lots of new cameras to go on a photo walk with.

I scored a recently hard-to-find fresh roll of this awesome Kodak film.
Not to be outdone by the ColorPlus I bought a roll of this classic from Kodak (fresh through 2024).
A Mamiyaflex C2 is in good working order. I have the interchangeable lenses for it waiting in the wings and a fresh roll of Kodak Portra 400.
I picked up this gorgeous Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 12.1MP camera. It’s a blast to use and produces stunning images (I haven’t turned on the GPS yet).
If only! I purchased three Mamiya sales brochures that I just had to have (since I don’t actually own the cameras).
Although it’s not made by the original Yashica I had to have this “cheesy” camera anyway!
I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to add this stunning Canon to my collection.
Last but not everything, this like-new Canon Sure Shot 85 Zoom Date 35mm compact point & shoot film camera with a crazy sharp lens.

There’s actually more to show but I’ll leave those for a bit later. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! – Chris
