As some of you may have read i have recently moved house to an area called Kirkham which is just outside Preston. It's only 20 minutes away from where i used to live but Jess got a good job here and she doesn't drive, plus we were over here 5 times a week anyway so it made sense. We moved at the weekend and i booked Monday to Wednesday off work (which means i'm back in today unfortunately). We got our friends and families to help us shift everything over to the new house and then we blasted out most of the unpacking and did a little decorating.
Yesterday we decided to have a little wander into the village which is literally 1 minute walk away from our new house. It's quite strange having every shop you need so close to your doorstep. There's hardware stores, a Morrisons, a greengrocers, cobblers, banks etc; and, of course, charity shops. We decided to pop into the first one you come to on the high street and lo and behold sat in the display cabinet was this:
And it came in a camera bag! All for £20. Needless to say i bagged it immediately. As you may know i dont usually shoot 35mm but i thought i may as well get this camera as i have a box of 35mm film i got given when i bought my darkroom and sometimes you just want rectangles instead of squares. So, whats in the kit i hear you ask? Well...
- A Yashica FRI camera body with TTL metering (complete with manuals)
- A Yashica 50mm f1.9 lens
- A Yashica 28mm f2.8 lens
- A Tamron 80-210 CF Telemacro f3.8 lens
- A Tamron 500mm SP Telemacro lens (with hood)
- A shutter release
- Cokin ring adapter with linear polariser
- A camera bag to keep it all in
