Something to Rave About

I'm so stoked to find out that my SLR Minolta XG-1 camera is actually not broken! I went to Mang Dong's camera repair shop in Quiapo because my Yashica Electro35GS died on me. I also asked him to check my Minolta which I thought has a sticky shutter problem but when he yanked the film advance crank it suddenly got fixed! I got to try my XG-1 on our trip to Liliw, Laguna and just going around the house taking pictures of common stuff like my pair of chucks shown in the picture. I'm ecstatic with how everything looked when I received my CD from Digiprint. The lens is sharp, the exposure is spot on and the pictures were awesome (well, in my eyes all my pictures are). I also have one more thing to rave about, my Yashica is healthy again and better than ever with it's light seals fixed and the viewfinder is clearer now that Mang Dong also took time to clean the insides of the camera. Now that I have 5 cameras working like magic in my depot, i'm faced with a difficult decision on which to use. It has become a normal thing for me to bring 2 to 3 of them every time I go out of the house. GF seems to be very understanding of the "situation" and lets me use her bag to carry my babies with me (love her so much). :)
