Going low tech part 2 - The Yashica-A 120 camera

As you saw in the last post, I had recently acquired a few older cameras and finally had time to get out and about with them since I also had film.  It took two weeks to get the prints back from Rite Aid, but I was blown away on some of them.  I didn't check the box to have the negatives scanned at the lab, but my multi-function printer scanner was up to the task.  For review, the image on the left was taken with an Argus 35mm camera and the image on the right was taken with my 21st century Canon T3i.
Now, here is the image taken with the Yashica-A 120 camera
I almost forgot just how much detail these cameras capture.  I love it.  I might actually try to get this one enlarged to hang somewhere.
And while were at it, here's another one I love from the 120 roll.
I think this is another one of those cases where the phrase, "they don't make 'em like that any more" comes into play. 
Looking forward to playing with all of these tools over the summer.
