The Leica M3- 5 reasons why it's the greatest camera ever The Leica M3: 5 reasons why it’s the greatest camera ever August 2, 2020 Posted in: Featured, Film camera Reviews, Leica Film Camera Reviews, Reviews - The Leica M3 doesn’t do anything that another camera can’t. In fact, by today’s standards, it is severely lacking in features that are normally considered standard. No light meter. No hot shoe. No autofocus. No automatic exposure. Limited frame line selection (50/90/135). 1/50 max flash sync speed… On paper then, one might ask why anyone […]

I covered my earliest roll in 2016 to my then most recent work on Kodak Tri-X 400. I had sampled almost everything on offer by ILFORD, quite a few […]

Cover - Building the Cameradactyl Brancopan Building the CAMERADACTYL Brancopan August 9, 2020 Posted in: Articles, Film camera Reviews, Reviews - “Are you drilling?” asked my bleary-eyed wife, coming out of the bedroom of our small apartment at 1:30am. My desk was cluttered with tools, plastic shavings, and a half-completed CAMERADACTYL Brancopan 3D-printed camera.

Cover - Stop cross processing your slide film- #Saynotoxpro - by Sandeep Sumal Stop cross processing your slide film: #Saynotoxpro August 22, 2020 Posted in: Articles, Featured, Opinion - That’s right I said it, stop cross-processing lovely slide film. Slide film was designed to produce lovely true striking colours, with great contrast, sharpness and fine grain. It allowed photographers, artists and printers to see exactly what they were getting. Yet you want to xpro it to make it grainy, blurry and a complete smorgasbord […]
