52 Cameras: # 183 — Yashica 230-AF




It speaks well for this camera that even with the shutter malfunction, giving a useful format of 36mm wide X 12mm high, I got some usable images. Most are sharpened a bit – they’re cropped to about 25% of normal area.

Kodak-Alaris Color Plus 200. I’m glad Kodak-Alaris re-introduced Color Plus. Usually, Gold 200 is what’s available in the US. Color Plus is good film for really cheap. I like it better than the Gold — it isn’t as saturated so images are more WYSIWYG. I can always add saturation in post if that’s what the subject calls for.

Scanned with a Canon CanoScan 9000f at 2400DPI.
