Contax G2 35mm

Hi

By courtesy of matikatak and garlic, I have landed myself with a 35mm Contax G2 c/w lenses 28mm Biogon; 45mm Planar; 90mm Sonnar. Got them last thursday but only managed 1 roll of ilford B&W. I have not tried the true capability of the camera as yet as saturday was an overcast day in Penang to do landscape, hence I simply shoot to complete the roll and quickly self develop.

Here are two reasonable images from that camera where both are captured handheld. In the weeks to come, I hope I can do colors especially with slides

1) Mujib seen here has no hesitant and ever willing to pose for me to try out the camera. He left his camera on its own doing some 20sec shots

2) A Batu Feringghi beach scene, but the sky was purely white due to the weather on that saturday. I have decided to hijack and layered Mujib's Sekinchan blue sky + clouds which I am scanning for his truly. On that day I had great company of SAs Adrian, Kevin & Mujib. Thanks

Hope I can spend more time with this little G2 thingy as I plan to take vacation to Terengganu early December to take monsoon pics, and Hips (Alex) is gracious enough to spare me a few hours When I am really done with more range of pictures and film types, I will post more in this thread.

Thanks for viewing, and C&C on this topic is welcome

Dan95, I will in due time put some images of that camera. E6? I got them processed at E-Six Pudu Plaza and they courier them to me in Penang. RM25/roll w/o courier charges. I hope we can do it soon.

oh..like that one. I dare not magnify to that stage as my wife is looking over my shoulders. But that image, no barrel distortion noh?

here goes, i quickly assembled the set of G2 for a snap. It is indeed a light camera, easy on the shoulders. At this very moment, my wife is making a customised bag for them, have to name it: Troy16 AW 300series... (poison administered, as aptly coined by matikatak ) lol
