Yashica Minister D
Rollei ATO 2.1 @ ISO 25
Adox APH 09
The Yashica Minister D was my first camera ever. Given to me by my father 30 years ago.
Everything still works including the meter (not certain about the accuracy though) but I don’t take it out much.
Well, this was an opportunity to try out the Rollei ATO 2.1 and to use the old Yashica. It was not a good idea because the Rollei is a tough film to deal with.
It was my first time using the Rollei ATO and all I can say for now is: it seems there’s no half-way with it. The transitions from light areas to dark areas are abrupt. Very easy to lose shadow detail but, on the other hand it doesn’t blow up the highlights. I think it’s a good film to use with positive EV compensation.
Again, this was my first time using the Rollei film and I’m not totally certain about the accuracy of the camera’s meter. I will make another test tomorrow with the Contax G2 without any EV compensation just be sure about the results from the Yashica.
