Analogue - Leica Mini Zoom

Leica Mini Zoom

Recently I have also dipped my toe back into the analogue world having picked up a Chinon CS in a charity shop. Subsequently I was given a Pentax Spotmatic II and acquired a Leica Mini Zoom, point and shoot film camera.

The Leica Mini Zoom is a 35mm compact rangefinder point-and-shoot camera produced in the mid 1990s. It features a Vario Elmar 35 – 70mm f/4.0 – 7.6 zoom lens and several basic, common “program modes” including bulb, infinity focus, exposure override, and the like.

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.
