Fun With Medium Format Part 2

The 120 film Yashica TLRs will take a maximum of 12 shots per roll. So unlike my dSLR, I have to be much more picky about when I fire the shutter. Plus the thing is totally manual, no light meter (well, the 124G does have one, but it's powered by an unavailable mercury button cell), so computer electronics, nothing of that sort, so you really have to know what you are doing because the film isn't forgiving.

But it's fun to carry around a light meter and box camera, and take your time composing and setting up all the requirements. Plus it's a great conversation starter.
