Analogue - Chinon CS

Chinon CS

Recently I have also dipped my toe back into the analogue world having picked up a Chinon CS in a charity shop.

The Chinon CS, also sold as the GAF L-CS, is a 35mm SLR camera made in Japan from 1979 onwards by Chinon. The model identification, CS, stands for Chinon Screw, the Chinon designation for the universal M42 Praktica/Pentax screw thread, see below regarding an M42 lens.

Subsequently I was given a Pentax Spotmatic II and acquired a Leica Mini Zoom, point and shoot film camera. My initial results with the analogue camera have been very interesting. I’ve used Ilford black and white films and a Kodak Colour film. These were bought online from Analogue Wonderland who sell the film, process it and scan the negatives.

I have also picked up a Helios M42-2 Lens fully manual lens which is renown for its swirly bokeh. This fits to my EOS R through a dedicated EOS R to M42 adapter. Recently I acquired a Carl Zeiss Jena 28mm F/2.8 wide angle lens which again fits my EOS R with an adapter.
