5 Frames… From a car boot sale win on Fomapan 400 Action (35mm Format / EI 400 / Olympus MJU) – by Victor Cachia

A few months ago on my Sunday routine at car boot sales looking for old and vintage film cameras I stumbled upon 2 (yes 2) cameras, lovely and in good looking condition Olympus MJU 35mm point and shoot cameras. I had previously read on the internet many times about the cult there is with the …

Northern sustainable darkroom- A green revolution for analogue photography

Northern Sustainable Darkroom: A green revolution for analogue photography

I stand at the edge of the forest, my dilapidated Canon in hand. Mist rises from the trees, as two pigeons snap their wings in hasty exit. A path snakes ahead, deep into the wooded dark. Raising my camera, I peer through the scuffed lens. I hold my finger to the shutter, waiting for the …

5 Frames… Of Old Main Street, Fort Worth, Texas (35mm Format / EI 400 / Nikon FA + Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AI) – by Davy Bruyninckx

As a film photographer, I am always drawn to some of the more timeworn parts of town, so to speak, and that propensity for the foregone cannot be more satisfied than in the old part of Main Street in Fort Worth, Texas. The old Main Street has tons of classic heritage but it’s not immune …

In autumn 1993 it was time again. The annual Blues Night in the neighboring town of Idar-Oberstein was coming up. This time I also wanted to take pictures there. My first time in a dark hall with a few spotlights on stage. What do I need? Flash was already categorically ruled out for me. I …

My Werra I, Victor Lefelman

5 Frames… Of ILFORD HP5 PLUS on a Werra I (35mm Format / EI 500 / Carl Zeiss Jena 50/2.8 Tessar) – by Victor Lefelman

The Werra I is an east german jewel of a camera, produced from 1954 until 1967 by Cal Zeiss Jena. Love at first glance is how it started for me; the camera looked like the brainchild of a team of designers free from the directives emanating from marketing executives, or any other authority, as a …

5 Frames… On original Fujifilm ACROS with a century-old Kodak Hawkeye No2 Model B (120 Format / EI 100) – by Simon Weller

Last year’s lockdown left me simultaneously busy with work and also with lots of time stuck at home I would not have normally had. The up and downsides of the new lockdown lifestyle. One of the advantages of this was it gave me a bit of time to sort through some old cameras I’d been …

Way back in 1963, in the early years of my photojournalism career, a German friend of mine who was about to emigrate to the US persuaded me to join him on a visit to his homeland in early February. ‘It’s the season of Der Fasching,’ he explained excitedly. ‘Everyone dresses up, there are big street …

In this article I am going to talk about the journey that led me to build the Mongoose automated negative carrier, and my newest device, the BoopBoop Trigger for digitizing mounted slides.  This won’t be so much a technical review or description as much as a meandering memoir for posterity about what I did with …

After twenty years hiatus from film photography, I sold all my digital gear and got back to my roots, and what better film than two fifteen-year-old expired rolls of Agfa Scala, to play with!

Nikon F3P - top down

Less than the sum of its parts? The Nikon F3P, a press camera

Back in the day, the “stock” Nikon F3 was so popular amongst Japanese photojournalists that Nikon decided to make a “Press” or “Professional” version to the Japanese market. Apparently, only accredited photojournalists could get their hands on one of these babies, so only limited quantities were produced until… Nikon decided to make extra ones called …

When I first bought a 5 pack of Lomography’s Lomochrome Purple XR 100-400 I wondered if the novelty might wear off after a roll or two and I fully expected to resell the rest. After a couple of rolls though, I realised there was something more to it than novelty and I couldn’t get enough. …

Over the hill or here or there: My adventures getting started in a large format film photography wonderland

It’s mid-December 2020 and a bearded, touqued figure stands silently on the side of a frozen lake looking off towards the rising peak of a distant mountain as the sun begins to rise. A wooden camera stands atop a carbon fiber tripod waiting for the film holder to be slid home and its shutter to …
