    • Hi everyone, I just recently purchased a Rolleicord V in very nice condition. This is my first film camera and also my first venture into taking photography more seriously. What 120 B&W and color films would you recommend for a newby? I guess criteria I'm thinking about is cost (cheaper, I can afford to buy more) and latitude (I'm sure I'll be making tons of exposure mistakes). Anything else I should be including in the criteria?   thanks!
    • Brian, your Vivitar 200 will work with your Canonet QL17 and any other film camera with a cold shoe. All you need is the proper PC cord as shown in the manual: vivitar_200.pdf (cameramanuals.org) The pointed end plugs into the socket at the bottom of the left side of the flash, just to the right of the serial number. The other end plugs into the socket on the front face of the camera under the viewfinder/rangefinder window (i.e., rewind side). I should have an extra PC cord. Send me a private message with your mailing address and I'll send one to you. The Vivitar 200 is an old model that pre-dates cameras with electronic components and probably has a high trigger voltage. When a camera's shutter triggers the flash, a current is sent through the camera's circuitry. A high voltage could potentially damage a camera's computer chips and electronics. Early generations of electronic cameras, such as the Canon A series and your EOS 650 may not experience problems. I would not use your Vivitar 200 on a newer electronic film camera and definitely not on any digital camera.
