Konica Hexar AF
I’m pretty sure that this is all TriX at various ISO.
A couple on months ago I got a Fuji X100.
I was planning on using it as my day to day camera.
Taking a camera with me on my way to and from work helps me to find interesting things on my daily routine. It’s a way of keeping a creative view about things that are pretty much the same every day but in fact they are always different and there’s always something worth while taking a picture of.
The X100 is a great camera no question about that but, at the end of the day, I was not happy at all with the results. It had nothing to do with the little Fuji. It delivers great image quality, it’s small and totally silent, it has amazing features like an ND filter at the press of a button, f2.0 lens… I mean… it was perfect for what I wanted.
On the other hand I felt that something was missing. I was missing the “depth” of film. I was missing getting home and developing a couple of rolls with my son while making dinner. I was missing the medium and I was missing the process so… a dear friend came to the rescue and he knows my soft spot. And my soft spot is the Konica Hexar AF. I had the black version a while back and it became instantly my favorite camera for daily use.
My “spot” melted for good when I saw that beautiful mint Konica Hexar AF 120 years Silver Edition so… the Fuji is out, a new princess has arrived.
These were taken with the black Hexar, I’m waiting to get some Protopan film to use on the new one.
