5 Frames of Kodak T-Max 100 with a Minolta Hi-Matic F – By Robert Kapp

I’m more of an SLR guy, but it was inevitable that I too would have to get a taste of the rangefinder world. For me, it started with a “Revue 400 SE”.  Revue is like a private label of the german mail order company “Quelle”. It has the same features as the Minolta Hi-Matic 7sII or the Konica Auto S3. I would even say that they are pretty much the same, but I don’t want to start a debate…

I desided to write an “Whole Roll” Post. Why? Because my wife allowed it. She’s almost on every roll of film I shoot so I of course need her permission to publish those photos. I often load my camera (this time the x-700) at the breakfast table and I reserve the first few frames for my daughter and wife, although I often struggle with their resistance.

Before I show you my 5 frames let me introduce myself. I’m Rob, 33 years old and my family and I are living in southern Germany. This is my first time trying my hand at writing and I hope i don’t screw it up. My film photography journey began 7 Years ago with an East German camera named Altissa Altix 5 and six rolls of Kodak Ultramaxx 400 which i saved from my neighbour’s trash can. Yes. In 2015, film was thrown away. What a waste. Maybe it was Kodak Gold I’m not completely sure. Not that it’s okay to throw Gold away!
