Beautiful work thanks for sharing them

Time for me to get out my beautiful example of this camera and get back to basics. A camera, a few rolls of film and an open mind.

The GSN is great--I own a couple--but your eye is truly phenomenal.

Great shots from a fine camera. There are tons of GTNs and GSNs here in Seoul for less than $50! I saw at least 10 today at a flea market.

Frontman..thanks brother! That's a killer lens on the GSN The simplicity and the quality of the Electro's has really won me over.

I'm wondering what the other film camera was that Avotious took with him. I'm hoping it too was a fixed lens RF. And, how many rolls of film he took/shot.

For all the people who agonize over bodies and lenses and what to take; .... ...

Photo bliss right there. Film over digital, cheap over expensive, the eye and composition over everything else.

The other film camera I took was a Kodak 3a pocket camera circa 1907:







Heres a snap from that trip taken with that camera:

How many rolls did you shoot? And did you have enough or need more?

Avotius, I am very glad you were able to discover the joy of using a Yashica camera. I have several models, and am happy with each one, even the ones that have died, because I know I can bring them back to life. And great work with the Kodak also. I usually don't mess with those because I am not willing to reroll the film to fit. But I have a couple of Agfa/Ansco's that fill the bill for MF.

Even though someone beat me to it last year, I'll say it anyway, definitely worthy of National Geographic!

Keep shooting!

PF

ps: Love the 'Top Gear' tag line

such beautiful images, thank you for sharing!
these situations show that no matter how many bucks one spends to buy the latest digital camera model, they still are not as reliable as a good old all mechanic film camera.

Electro 35 s are amazing.
Great lens and amazing meter. Also very easy camera to teach people on and get great results from the first roll. I have 3 gsn and a lynx 14

Wow, this is an amazing set - very inspired work. This should be resurrected at least once each year! Like an exhibit.

Great pics. I always, well generally speaking, take one of my GSN, GS or MG-1 cameras with me when traveling into Siberia, Russia proper or Ukraine. By looking at my posted shots, I can tell which ones were taken on one of my Yashicas.

Incredible that I seem to have missed this thread the first time and during its previous reincarnations.

Stunning photos. Of course that isn't a surprise from Avotius.

I remember this thread from long ago but when I looked at the photos I was still amazed at how good they are.

A+ mate go to the top of the class.

I'm feeling guilty about wanting to sell my GSN now.

Not that I could match the photographs in this thread.

All these Yashicas make excellent images. The lenses are terrific.

The images in this thread are truly remarkable. Oddly, the one camera I own that I could never get along with is my Yashica GSN. I shot two rolls through it, couldn't handle its size and clunkiness, and haven't touched it since.

Wow ... I just checked the date when this thread was posted by Avotius, who's life has changed significantly incidentally. He's now a dad and living in China to my knowledge.

This thread was the sole reason I bought a Yashica and I'm so glad it resurfaces every now and then to remind us that beautiful images can be had from the most humble of cameras.

I salute you Colin and hope you're life is currently full and happy.

You couldn't ask for anything much better. Three cheers for the plain old Yashicas. You probably just boosted up the going price on the GSN series!
