Re: [halfframe35] need recommendation!!! wanna buy half frame
- View SourceHelp us out a little... what do you want to do with it? Do you want a
single lens or many? Do you want automatic or manual operation? Do you
want to pay a little or a lot?
With no other information I can still, and always, recommend the
Olympus Pen line - there is something to suit every taste in there. The
Pen D is a great camera, fixed lens but fast - and the Pen F / FT / FV
series has a nice set of good lenses, but is a little pricey and
requires fully manual metering. My personal favorites are the Pen D and
the EED, then the Pen F
For fully automatic operation, there is the Yashica Samurai - it has
Auto Focus, Auto metering, and a motor drive. It is a plastic
wonder-brick, but I do not care for it myself. I'm a kind of retro-geek
when it comes to cameras ;-) I like them to have lots of shiny metal.
Buy a few, try them out, they are fun and not too expensive. And think
of the money you will save on film :-)

- View SourceThanks for your recommendation. From yours I think I prefer automatic
or easy manual operation. Single lens may be great.
However, I have another question.
Are all chaikaI, II, III okay? I don't see this name in your mail
And some other brand that I can't remember right now?
I want to buy half frame because it's fascinating. I'm in love with two
picture in one frame. That's all my reason to buy one.
So maybe you'd imagine and have other suggestion : )
Thank Thanks Thankss...
- View SourceA good (and plentiful) camera that is fully automatic
(only) is the Yashica Samurai. Check e-bay or the
used sections of B&H or Adorama. You'll love it.
