The Yashica-Mat is working well, but I'm still getting used to its operation. I'm finding that in low light and close up I really need to use the flip-up magnifying lens to ensure sharp focus. The camera's controls are working smoothly, and the frame spacing is even. To get a full first frame I found that I need to roll the "Start" point on the film backing about three-quarters of an inch beyond the red dot that indicates the start point. All the shots on this roll were at 1/100 and f8; that was a little under-exposed, but I didn't want to blow out the sunny background.
