March might seem like a distant memory as we go barrelling into May, so let this month in review be a reminder to you – at least as far as EMULSIVE is concerned. Here are March’s 28 articles and photos split out as the top ten (according to you), and then as a complete list.
If you don’t remember reading 28 new things here last month, it’s time to catch up!

…and back in love with photography again and again.
Warning: the following review of the diminutive Olympus XA is highly biased and totally subjective. I love the darn thing and actually own 2 of them.
By way of introduction my name is Geoff Roughton and to get it out of the way, 4 years ago I had a stroke…..well actually a series of mini-strokes followed by something more major.
To the analogue landscape photographer, choosing one’s film stock is one of the most crucial steps in the creative process.
Back over the summer of 2018, my beloved Bronica SQ-A became gravely ill, and I sent it off to the camera spa for some TLC.
Because it couldn’t just be 160T, that’d be too easy.
Kodak EKTACHROME 160T, was one of the three speeds of tungsten-balanced slide film that Kodak produced until 2013 or so, and you can still find plenty of it around
Flawless finish, consistent operation and engineered like a fine timepiece, the BOMM V810 is a wonder of thought, effort and passion…and my new 8×10 workhorse.
The cost of manual-focus 35mm equipment increases to rise and Nikon gear is leading the pack.

Having been and ILFORD user since learning to shoot with it in high school, I thought it high time I gave some Kodak stock a look (I have been shooting film again for about two years – a VERY
Appendix C of the Technical Field Guide for the Discerning Analog Photographer: Accounting for rise using a linear, half-lens splitting mask
In Appendix A I went into greater detail on my equations used for pushing and pulling in the field; and, then, in Appendix B we looked at the equations behind metering for multiple exposures.
Wet plate collodion doesn’t spring to mind as either the most practical or in fact, legal approach to creating passport photographs but that didn’t stop EMULSIVE interviewee #196 Markus Hofstaetter from giving it a shot.

Greetings from EMULSIVE HQ.
I had a roll of CineStill 800T in my fridge waiting for a special occasion. I was going home from work one day and I could see a promise of fog in the air.
It was always going to come to this point. With compact cameras that sport prime lenses, even though the image quality is as it should be, the photographer is limited to a single set focal length.
We’ve reached the heady heights of our second official episode and this runaway holding tank* is showing no signs of stopping.
Hamish and I talk about the MAYA darkroom timer, the redevelopment of the analogue photography hardware industry, my
Good news received directly from our friends at “New” Tetenal: the final pieces of paperwork were given their stamps of approval, and the company was officially registered last Friday March 8th 2019!

5 Frames… Of people and their dogs with ILFORD HP5 PLUS (EI 400 / 120 format / Rolleiflex T) – Joan Sorolla
I started to shoot daily images while I was walking my dog some years ago.
Testing is going well. Everyone who has tried the SP-8×10+ loves it. The biggest technical challenge: we’re still optimizing the hold-down tabs.
I got a sample roll of Kodak VISION3 250D (5207) as a roll of “SFL K250D”.
Appendix B of the Technical Field Guide for the Discerning Analog Photographer: Metering for finite and infinite multiple exposures
Welcome to the second appendix to the Technical Field Guide for the Discerning Analog Photographer.
On Valentine’s Day 2018, I stopped by my school’s photo lab on a whim and was unexpectedly treated to blindly pick from a grab bag of various films.
It’s time for the shortlist for February 2019’s #FP4Party.
This film, FOQUS A125, is made by an enthusiast in Russia, and is hard to obtain without Russian connections (Russians buy it from the man himself on a forum full of untranslatable idioms).
