FIND: Film is not dead

A month ago I bought an old Contax G1 camera on eBay. I loaded it with some Kodak Gold 200 film from the lokal supermarket (waiting for a few rolls of Tri-X 400 to arrive) and gave it a test run. The Contax is pretty heavy when carried around with one hand – a lot heavier than my Fuji X100 and my NEX-7. It feels very solid and gives a great feeling when operated. Some people complain about “small and dark” viewfinder, but I found it OK.
