Rollei RPX 400 @ 400 and 800
Rollei RHS DC
This is the little Vivitar 35ES.
Mine was given to me by a friend and I’ve never used it for anything serious, not even for my experiments with film and developers. This little Vivitar amazed me when I saw the results from a test roll.
I left the camera with my 11 years old son with clear instructions:
Test the rangefinder accuracy.
See if it is easy to focus.
See how it handles with large apertures.
Do not go under 1/60s.
My son toke the task in hands and gave me back the camera on Monday with the (finished) test roll in it. And what a sweet little camera it is! Pretty good lens, sharp too. It’s a fixed 40mm/1.7. Takes 49mm filters and it’s an exposure priority camera. You choose the speed through a ring on the lens and inside the viewfinder the camera shows what aperture it will use. Speed goes from B to 1/500 and ISO from 25 to 800.
All the pictures were taken by my son, except his portrait, and he developed the film.
Sorry for all the blá, blá… but I can’t help feeling a very proud dad.
