    Unless is got unusually hot or something it should be fine. Just give a stop or two more light and process normally.

    I shoot OMs a bit and have (for a long-while) fancied trying a Fuji GW so have been paying attention to those.

    Fuji Gw690ii – £550-750
    Om4Ti, black, 50 and 28mm lenses – £275-350 (assuming the lenses are the f1.4/1.8 and f2.8/3.5 and not the faster variants).

    eBay or dealer prices may be a bit higher.

    I too would prefer a 40mm tbh. It’s a shame the 1960/70s leaf-shutter rangefinders (with their 38-45mm lenses) aren’t more reliable.

    How much you use a 50mm? If the answer is ‘Yes’ then a nice Konica IIIa might scratch the itch for an M3 for a fraction of the price. They’re very nice things, mine cost about £250 a year ago.

    … but the M10 is just that lil bit slimmer. It’s got those authentic film body vital stats 💸

    Didn’t phones get basic versions of the latest AF tech first? Eye recognition etc?
    The churn of users replacing phones yearly and the shear market size would explain why.

    There’s some pretty trick stuff with multiple lenses and sensors for virtual DoF, augmented light-sources etc that doesn’t care how big your aperture or sensor is. I don’t know if ‘phones’ or ‘cameras’ will handle that best.

    A bit guilty.

    One reason to shoot film is you’re not distracted by following the technology arms race that (whilst useful commercially I guess) has fuck all to do with the photography I find interesting.

    The M9 was the first full frame, digital, mirrorless, interchangeable-lens, commercially available camera. That was released 13 years ago but wasn’t really a niche product. It kinda worked. It cost a lot … but not more than ‘pro’ cameras traditionally have.

    Isn’t it generally accepted now that mobile, motion picture capture and action/drone cameras, telescopes n shit have all driven advances. And that consumer dad cams mostly just get trickledown tech?

    Cartier Bresson was splashing about in the right puddle. Being a good photographer is a bourgeois concept.
