Film ~ Canonet 28 First Roll!

I just picked up the first roll of film shot on my new (old) Canonet 28 from Looking Glass Photo in Berkeley, and I could not be more excited! It took me a few months to shoot this roll of HP5 but the results are well worth the wait. The fixed 40mm 2.8 lens on the Canonet 28 is incredible sharp.

Meet my friend Griffin. I saw him  with his skateboard and asked him to pose for this photo. After a few months he finally has the result. With this roll of film I really tried to branch out in my ‘style’ of photography. I took more candids and portraits  and it was a great exercise in creativity. Forcing yourself to evolve is the best way to prevent getting bored or stagnating creatively.

This is just a small preview from the Canonet until I have some more time over the long weekend to post more photos and write an extensive review of the camera itself. Check back for updates! I have a lot of insights to share if you’re considering a compact film rangefinder.

Thanks for stopping by!
Chris
