Day 361: An unlikely duo.

Today Buzz and I drove upstate to walk around the grounds of the Vanderbilt mansion in Hyde Park. Of course I was going to bring my new Mamiya C330, but I was also trying to finish rolls of film that I had loaded in other cameras, so I brought along a friend for the Mamiya.

Day 361 - C330 and Konstruktor

Aren’t they cute together?

The Mamiya and the Konstruktor are both black and have waist-level viewfinders, but beyond that point, the similarities come to a screeching halt: A few ounces of plastic vs a few pounds of metal and glass; a toy that could barely harm a fly vs a camera that could effectively be used as a weapon against assailants; novelty imperfection vs a legendary quality.

It will be interesting to compare the results from both.
