Full frame !!
Yes, finally, I venture into full frame camera !!!!!
But, it's not a DSLR but an SLR ! LOL
Introducing, my good old SLR, the Yashica FX-3 Super !
This camera is actually my eldest brother's one. He had, what should I say, "abandoned" this camera quite some time already. I accidentally found it one day in a cupboard in my parent's house back in Penang. To my surprise, it's function able.
It's a fully mechanical manual camera. No complicated buttons, no settings, no screen and it has only one shutter speed knob. And to my surprise again, this camera has a built in metering !!
How the metering function ? I think there is a light meter inside the camera and that require batteries, two small pill like batteries. There is a light meter indicator when view through the view-finder. If the exposure is correct, a green dot will be lighted. Red plus indicate over expose, and red minus tells me underexpose. If a red plus and a green dot is lighted, then that's about "1/2 EV compensation" (not sure correct to say so or not), and vice-versa if a red minus sign with green dot is "-1/2 EV compensation". Like a digital camera, half press the shutter and the exposure light will be indicated. Oh yes, the metering take in film ISO into account one.
The lens could be the kit lens for this camera. It's a Yashica made, and its a zoom cover from 35mm to 70mm, TRUE ZOOM, no crop one ! LOL. And the aperture range from f/3.5 - f/4.8. However, the aperture blade kaput already, and it's now a constant f/3.5 lens throughout the whole zoom range! Cool ! LOL
I just bought its "sensor" not long ago, and I'm proud to say, I've started snapping 2 pictures already ! LOL. How is the result ? Well, I have to wait for the next 34 exposures before I can tell. Hahaha...
So, I should no longer worry about white balance, I guest. But without any anti-shake mechanism build in either the body or the lens, I'd pray hard hard that my pictures would not be shaky ones.
Finally, one of my "should I or should I not" quentions got its answer. :D
