Zorki 4

My Zorki 4 arrived in my mail last week.  Was packed quite securely.

This camera is an interesting one.  It has no light meter, fully manual and has interchangeable lens.  It’s an LTM screwed on mount.

Unlike my Yashica GSN, because it has no light meter, I had to guess my exposure setting.  Being a newbie, that resulted in a few washout over exposed shots.  Well…. not a few, but almost half of my first roll went that way.  I adopted the Sunny 16 rule during Kyeron’s recent swimming trip, but either I did something wrong, or what, but all my shots were over exposed.  Nevermind, I’ll try again.

Here’s a few pictures from my first and second roll with it.  Took it when Natty had her ballet lessons @ i12.

Here are some shots taken from home where the light was much better.

More to come, as I’m sending my other 2 rolls for processing today.  On recommendation from a fellow Clubsnap member, there’s another film developing shop at Burlington Square by the name of Triple D Minilab Centre, which is much cheaper than Konota.

  1. Nothing beats the sweet output of a film camera! The grains, saturation and contrast! Can’t wait to see the next roll 🙂
