Just got my first roll of film processed from my new (to me) Canonet QL17 GIII. I've been watching these cameras on eBay for a while now and found this camera for less than $70! It's in fantastic shape and (now that I've seen the results I can confirm) it worked right out of the box

What a camera. I have been looking for a tiny pocket-sized camera ever since I started getting into street photography. It started after watching BBC's The Genius of Photography series. I was blown away after hearing Joel Meyerowitz talk about his relationship with street photography. After that, I started following along with the adventures of Eric Kim, reading about Robert Frank and Henri Cartier-Bresson. I was really getting into this whole idea of capturing the candid moments that are happening out there - in the cities, towns and communities around me. After realizing that taking photos in the street is a fairly obvious activity when you are hauling around a big DSLR and pointing it at people, I decided to do my research and invest in a pocket-sized point and shoot that had some agility, subtlety and most importantly, great glass.
