Yashica ML 50mm f1.9 + Agfa Vista + Bad Frog

Blog, Built To Last

I was at a free live show in Piacenza and in my bag i was carrying one of my “Photo Shove” film cameras and my Yashica FX3 super 2000.

On stage, in the town square, the Bad Frog was entertaining the audience with their italo-punkrock but unfortunately, in a location like that, it was virtually impossible to hope that there was some pogo or crowd surfing.

Thanks to the headliners rigs, the light set was more “professional” so I decided to take some pics with my SLR: I was testing a roll of AGFA Vista 400 pushed to 1600 and a 50mm f1.9 ML Yashica lens!

We must consider that I was shooting at F1.9 and F2.8, so my DoF were approximately between 1 to 2 meters and that the manual focusing in this low light conditions is really hard to do.

However I’m surprised about the results! Both the lens and the film have returned god colors and sharpness!!

Next time I’ll have to take more shots and try to push the AGFA to 3200! (HERE you can read about the first failed attempt)

Oh and I’m on the hunt for another ML Lens (maybe a 24mm)!
