Maximum readiness, effective robustness: The Durst Sei Sei (Durst 66)

During the never-ending cycle of lockdowns here in the UK, I’ve set myself a little project wandering about on my permitted ‘one-exercise-a-day’ time, documenting my hometown of Stone in the West Midlands. My preferred film is ILFORD HP5 PLUS: absolutely bomb-proof. A friend regularly develops his in his coffee (Caffenol) […]

Around Europe with the Zorki 4K

Around Europe with the Zorki 4K

I for the longest time fancied owning a completely mechanical rangefinder camera, but I always thought that they were out of my budget. That was until I, by utter chance, stumbled into the world of Fed and Zorki Ukrainian and Russian rangefinders. After doing a bit of research online, I […]

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 […]

5 Frames… Of Adox KB 17 during ‘Der Fasching’ at the heart of the Black Forest in 1960s Germany (35mm / EI 100 / Asahi Pentax SV + 28mm f/3.5 Super-Takumar)

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 […]

A year in the life of a backyard cameramonger during a global pandemic: Building fast, automated devices for scanning film and mounted slides – the Mongoose and the BoopBoop Trigger

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 […]

I’m from Seattle, WA, US yet I have been overseas for the last 13 years, working, exploring, and experiencing what you see in travel vlogs. I’m now in Hai Phong, Vietnam, around 2 hours to the west of Hanoi on the coast near Ha Long Bay. I arrived from Birmingham, […]

With winter bearing down upon us, my family and I visited the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center in Providence, RI USA for a little weather respite. My family brought sketch pads and watercolor paints; I brought a roll of Fuji Velvia 50, a Nikon FM2, a Nikon 105mm f/2.8 AI-s […]
