Another film adventure blog for this summer....with Mamiya DSX1000, introduced in 1974. I love this camera!!! When I first got this camera, I am not sure what to do.... especially with the use of in camera light meter. After watching couple of youtube videos, buying new batteries, I am ready.... not really. Upon further inspection of the camera, the damper was disintegrating which could cause mirror to break when it flick up, or could cause light leak. I end up spending a bit of time trying to replace a DIY mirror damper.  The DSX1000 is very similar to the very popular MSX500/1000. Except that the DSX1000 has a dual light meter, average and spot, where as the M version only has average metering. Number 500 and 1000 represent maximum shutter speed of 1/500s and 1/1000s, respectively. The Mamiya DSX is a successor of the vastly popular Mamiya DTL.... although the DSX wasn't as popular :(.  

This blog is the first roll of film I try out with this camera, and to test possible light leak. I end up taking this camera around to a few places in the span of 2 months to finish my roll of fuji 200/24 films. Here are some of my adventure/street photography captured with the lovely DSX1000.
