Camera review: Me and my Rolleicord Vb – by Shawn Mozmode (aka everything you ever wanted to know about a Rolleicord but were afraid to ask)

Here’s the wonderful Shawn Mozmode to give us his take on his upright beauty, the Rolleicord Vb. Over to you, Shawn!

In recent years I’ve turned into more of a do-it-yourself kind of guy. From starting leatherwork a few years back, to getting knee deep other crafts, hacks and mods.

It’s something I do partly in the name of getting exactly what I want and partly for the unique buzz I get from the...

Over to you Bob.   Camera review: Me and my Olympus MJU-II (Stylus Epic) – Bob Rhodes I’d been scouring eBay for one of these cameras for ages.
