An Intrepid project: building a new 8×10 camera

“Experimentation.” This is what Max Grew, co-founder of Intrepid Camera told me when I asked him what the driving force behind his company was in a conversation we had some days before the closing date of their successful 8×10 Kickstarter campaign. “I’d say that we’re coming from a very different perspective to most companies making camera’s these days. Our stance is more a case of, here are the tools, go and experiment with them. Don’t worry about your camera, we’re here to fix it for as long as you, it and we are around.” Followers of the Intrepid story...

Long exposure film tests part two: ILFORD HP5+, ILFORD Delta Professional 400, ILFORD Delta Professional 3200, ILFORD SFX 200 by Toni Skokovic

Welcome to part two of my long exposure test results. for part two I wanted to look at how higher speed films from ILFORD behave with longer exposure times. While it seems redundant to use higher speed films for longer exposures, one does not know what can be found. As you will remember from part one, is central to my ongoing photography project, Where We Meet.   This second part of my tests, continues my attempts at mastering the long exposure technique that is key for my project and I hope, charts my endeavours to complete a comprehensive test of various...

It seems that a few sneaky types have recently been spreading rumours about a new film from Cinestill on social media. These have, until now, gone unconfirmed by CineStill or the brothers Wright.

Yup, you heard it, Cinestill 50D is now being produced in 120 format, and the link below will get you early access before the official announcement later today (June 28th 2017). You can...

Photographic education goes beyond the camera – by Shaun La

Teaching and learning are not bounded by institutions with classrooms. But the classroom should not be underestimated, either. With photography, we are in an unfamiliar space. The camera can be in a device that can accept and make out phone calls, write e-mails, or layer out digital maps for us who are new to an area. It can be more about the device’s gadgets; whereas, the camera is an option, not the complete instrument. Alongside this unfamiliar space in photography, there is the marketing that anyone can teach photography. You could turn right or left while surfing the Internet...

Camera review: me and my Zenza Bronica S2A by Ed Worthington

Hello again, it’s The 6 Million P Man here back after my review of the Yashica-D with another offering from my (not quite extensive but close enough) camera collection, another delight of the medium format variety, the Zenza Bronica S2A. Here’s what’s covered in this article:     A bit of history Zenza Bronica first started making cameras in 1958 when Zenzaburo Yoshino (awesome name yeah?) introduced his first 6×6 medium format SLR, the Bronica Z at the Philadelphia Camera Show. He’d invested nearly all his company’s money into the design and manufacture of the body and had to outsource...

Featured Project: Salad Days – A period of inexhaustible brash exuberance by James Grundy

Quiet rural towns offer little in the form of excitement for those stricken with terminal misbehaviour. They are a poor sanctuary to those with a sickening passion to live. I felt this energy as I moved back to my home town after being away for 4 years, found a new group of friends, and a photography project fell directly into my lap. this was the beginning of Salad Days. I shot all the photographs on my Canon AE-1 program with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. The film used varied between Kodak T-MAX 400 and Kodak Tri-X 400, always shot at...

Camera review: Me and my Nagaoka 4×5 – Andrew Sanderson

Today I’m going to be reviewing my Nagaoka 4×5, a compact 4×5 field camera designed and built in the 1970’s by Nagaoka Seisakusho in Tokyo. This camera and its siblings (the Nagaoka 8×10 and 9×12) were conceived as “the most portable, the most compact large-scale wooden cameras”. A name that the 4×5 certainly lived up to at the time. Here’s what’s covered in this article:   If you have never used a large format camera before, they can be daunting, and even confusing. Operating one for the first time is quite a different experience to shooting 35mm or medium format...
