>>3156498>I'd say I'm more likely to carry the Yashica around with me, it's smaller and lighter than most DSLRs.
To each his own, obviously, but I find a TLR to be weird and awkward to carry wound with me. It's lighter, but it's a weirder shape, and it generates a lot more attention when I shoot with one, and the top-down viewfinder is harder to use because everything's backwards, and half the time I double-shoot frames like an idiot because it doesn't automatically advance the roll, and I need to use an external light meter, and it's just a huge hassle. Again, this is just me, and if you're happy with your Yashica, more power to you.>I've had a bad experience with autofocus
It helps to understand that autofocus is basically doing the same thing you do with a rangefinder or split-prism focusing screen. Make sure you point it at something with sufficiently high contrast for the AF system to understand where the edges are. There's a bit of technique to it, just like any focusing method.>My scanner does that automatically, most do.
Probably not with black and white, unless there's been advances I haven't been following. And even with color, I always found the IR automatic dust/scratch removal to be iffy at best. But then, I haven't done any scanning in three or four years at least, so technology might have fixed that aspect.>I scan all my negs at home.
And see, that kills a lot of your "better image quality" argument.
