This is the smiling 'face' of a Minolta Autocord LMX. It's a medium format 6cm x 6cm film camera made sometime between 1958 and 1961 and I've borrowed it from a friend who has kindly agreed to loan it to me so that I could put a few rolls of film through it.
I've been wanting to try MF film for a while now after seeing the results on the web of photographers like Michael Kenna.
Well, I got the prints back tonight from my first two rolls of film and I was delighted to see that, despite my inexperience and the great age of the camera, they've turned out really nicely.
I'll show you some of them over the next couple of days and you can tell me how you think the photos compare to the results we get from our modern digital cameras.
