Canonet Junior - test roll
For Christmas last year Jean bought me a Canonet Junior (35mm film) camera. I was too busy with my 365 to test it until recent months. I was also rather wary of its focusing function - looking through the viewfinder does not show the focus point, which meant a lot of guessing was involved. When the film was processed I found that this camera is not one for closeup shots of flowers, and other things that I can't recall from the out-of-focus images they created! For the few times that I did manage to gain a fairly acceptable focus, I am happy with the results, though next time I will use a lower ASA film (I used Kodak 400), as the camera can only be set to a maximum ASA of 200.
