  1. I tried to cut/paste my review here, but there were too many images, so I have to link.

    Best Light Photographic BLOG: Yashica Y35 digiFilm Camera Review

    For those not wanting to link over there and read:

    • It's best to keep these kinds of projects in proper perspective
    • My unit seems to be working as advertised
    • If you are a pixel peeper, you'll hate this
    • If you like the lo-fi aesthetic, you'll appreciate what it provides
    • There is a lot of hate, most likely fueled by the long delays, poor communication by the manufacturer, and, well.... The internet blowing up about it

  2. Interesting. We used to have a couple of Yashica bodies from the late '60s. If they made digifilm for actual film bodies it would interest me more.
     
  3. I agree. I always look in interest for the projects that convert film slrs into digital. Maybe, someday...
     
  4. Interesting ... my first 35mm camera back in the 70's was a Yashica Electro 35 GSN. Enjoyed that little camera a lot. I probably don't need another camera, but this would be an interesting "toy" to play with.

    Sad that so many folks are commenting with such strong language. Am I crazy to wish for a return of civility?

    Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Not crazy at all. I see all the hostility as well and just choose to not feed into it.

  7. I am totally loving mine - so much to the point where I purchased 2 more film packs and now I have the complete ensemble of "film".
    My only downside is that the lens cap no longer stays on due to excessive use by me.....

  8. Honestly, same here. I'm going to see about some other lens cap system for it. I still need to order the other 2 films .

  9. I'm actually thinking about.....
    LoL ordering the brown special edition sometime next year...:eek: 
    Since I have all of the "film", I'll ask them if I can just get the body only.....
     
  10. Oh, the other 2 films arrived very quick!

  13. FYI, I just tested a 37mm pinch cap from one of my m43 lenses and it fits the Yashica Y35 perfectly. I just ordered one from Amazon for super cheap.
    $5 - free shipping.

  16. I'm interested, but as you say, not at that price. From the reviews and samples I've seen, the IQ could be better, especially for the asking price. I hope to see one somewhere used for about half that....then I might snag one.

    Yeah that would be more in the direction of what I would pay for it.
     
  18. The Blue is interesting....more time to understand it...

  19. This is the first I have seen of this "digifilm", guess I am out of the loop, but it looks very interesting, and maybe a purchase in the future for me (or maybe another film camera!)
