The Linx 5000

I did not shoot a single roll of film in all my years as a professional photographer. That was until last week. I had been bandying about the idea of picking up a pin hole camera or a Diana, but had yet to pull the trigger.  Fortunately enough for me, I have incredible neighbors. One of the more intrepid of these Munjoy residents stopped by the crib the other day with a handsome, aged leather camera bag. What I found inside I knew almost nothing about, a 1960's 35mm Rangefinder; the Yashica Linx 5000. After polishing up my film loading skills via youtube, I cranked in a roll of b&w and set off for the Eastern Promenade to test out the new old machine...
