An in-depth guide to: The Leica M6 TTL An in-depth guide to: The Leica M6 TTL July 5, 2020 Posted in: Featured, Film camera reviews, Leica film camera reviews, Reviews - Made for only four years between 1998 and 2002, the Leica M6 TTL was the successor the 1984-98 Leica M6 and brought with it a couple of new party tricks: an ergonomically designed shutter speed dial and TTL flash metering. That huge shutter dial might not seem like a big deal today, in fact, you […]
Yashica-B review: the lovable "rare" TLR camera Yashica-B review: the lovable “rare” TLR camera July 6, 2020 Posted in: Articles, Film camera reviews, Reviews, Yashica film camera reviews - I’ve been fascinated with Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) cameras ever since I can remember, and even before I knew what a TLR was — I just knew them as these beautiful, quirky little photograph-taking boxes that appeared in the hands of famous and not-so-famous people dressed in 1950s and 60s attire.

Film Notes: Current high-speed films, ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional and Kodak T-MAX P3200 - by Simon King and Andrew Blowers Film Notes: Current high-speed films, ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional and Kodak T-MAX P3200 July 11, 2020 Posted in: Articles, Film Notes, Film stock reviews, ILFORD Film Stock Reviews, Kodak Film Stock Reviews, Reviews - I’ve often described how I think that people looking for a different “look” from film would be better suited exposing and developing in a different way before they’d see any benefit from switching emulsions. Unless someone is searching for a specific “effect” in terms of grain structure, or halation, then most films will produce fairly […]
Self portrait - Sofi Mdvinishvili In Conversation With… Sofi Mdvinishvili: Tiblisi’s analogue photography scene (NSFW) July 12, 2020 Posted in: In Conversation With..., Interviews - During 2018 I lived for some months in Tbilisi, capital of Georgia (the Caucasus region country, not the US state). As an analog photographer, the first thing I did before going there was to tool for local analog photographers and labs. I found about work and a place to develop my films at around the […]
My Leica M4-2 - Ryan HK 5 Frames… Of black and white Fuji 8573/500T in Rodinal with a Leica M4-2 July 15, 2020 Posted in: 5 Frames..., Articles - I had a 400ft reel of expired 8572 kicking around the boat, and decided to load 100ft into cassettes to start shooting. I’ve heard horrendous stories of expired Fuji cine films just not holding up like their Kodak Vision counterparts… But, I got a great deal on this reel and figured it was worth testing […]

Quick forum research […]
Zenza Bronica ETRS: Not exactly the poor man’s Hasselblad Zenza Bronica ETRS: Not exactly the poor man’s Hasselblad July 19, 2020 Posted in: Bronica film camera reviews, Film camera reviews, Reviews - The Bronica has been described as the poor man’s Hasselblad. That is just wrong, as I hope to demonstrate through this article. When I began my journey back to film photography, I looked at Rolleiflex cameras first, but finally settled on the Hasselblad 500C/M — of which I have two now. I recently decided to […]
