Canonet QL17 GIII

a.k.a. _another_ film camera?

I guess I've been thinking more about film lately than digital. It's fun, I shoot less and think more. I'm not sure if the results are ultimately better, but it's changing the way I shoot and that's a good thing IMO.

And rangefinders are all in vogue, so I thought I'd see what all the fuss is about.

Well, I can't tell yet besides that it's quiet and smaller. Not small by today's standards, but smaller than a D300 by a long shot. And smaller than my FM's by a fair bit.

We'll see how I like it... well first I have to confirm that it works anywhere near properly. So I've started putting a test roll through it. We shall see.

Wish me luck!
