I happened to own a Yashica T4 and I have a very strange relationship with it. I am well aware of its cult status. I know that its Zeiss lens should be really good and especially for a compact camera. I see gazillions of positive reviews of it. But every time I am going through another roll from it I am finding myself thinking: “So this is it? Is it really that different from any other camera?” Don’t get me wrong, the results are not bad. But they don’t blow my mind either.

I might be the only person who needed to pass an exam in order to use my first camera: my father didn't allow me to use his Zenit TTL until I passed his test on knowledge of the camera operation. Now, in the digital era, I still have nostalgic feelings for the good old film times. When nostalgia is becoming too strong, I put my digital camera aside and go on a "film diet". Nowadays I am at this stage of my diet where I have more film than food in the fridge.
