Where Do I Go From Here?

April 2007, Stuttgart.

Fuji Neopan 400

If yesterday’s shot was taken by Minolta’s excellent compact rangefinder, the HiMatic 7sII, today’s shot was taken by Canon’s similar full-featured rangefinder, the Canonet QL17 GIII (I often wonder who comes up with such imaginative camera names!). The Canonet is bigger and heavier than the Minolta but sports a much brighter and clearer viewfinder than the latter and even offers automatic parallex correction, something found only on more expensive rangefinders! It’s 40mm lens is as fast as the one on the Minolta (f/1.7) but according to the many user reports I’ve read online it falls short on contrast and sharpness when compared to the one on the latter. Read more about the Canonet here. All in all I’m very happy with my two rangefinders as they are great fun to use and will keep me going until I can afford a Leica 🙂
