For the TLDR you’re looking for, the new Billingham Mini Eventer is a bit bigger than a Hadley Small Pro and a bit smaller than a Hadley Pro 2020. For everyone else, say hello to the new Billingham Mini Eventer! I might be stating the obvious but if you’re searching for an idea of the […]
Say hello to the final piece of Negative Supply’s “Basic” family of film scanning puzzle, the Basic Film Carrier 120 for medium format film available now for US$199 from Negative Supply’s online store. When Negative Supply first burst onto the market via Kickstarter in the second half of the 2019, it was obvious that they […]

Simplicity itself. At £44.99 / US$62, pixl-latr is one of the most inexpensive and versatile photographic film digitisation systems […]
When I saw Fat Tire and Field Mag announce their contest to develop film in beer I knew I was entering a rabbit hole, but I couldn’t have possibly known how far that rabbit hole went, or what I’d find at the bottom. While I’d been told about Caffenol and its derivative formulas for developing […]

When embarking on the journey of creating this passion project as a personal creative outlet in 2015, I had certain ideas about how things could evolve over time. I saw potential in the idea of a collaborative, quality-first, and when-ready publication. I still do, obviously. At some point I caught myself daydreaming about publishing this […]
Cyanotype — also known as the “blueprint” or “sunprint” process, among other names — is a photographic process that has been practiced by photographers for ~180 years. Through the magic of combining two chemicals — ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide — you can produce a striking blue image in a matter of moments. Coated […]
After learning last year that our office was due to close, I wanted to use my photographic skills to give something back to the people I worked with, something that might help them find their next dream job. I thought I could offer portraits that people could use on their CVs and social media. After […]
I really am struggling to introduce today’s interviewee, someone whom I was introduced to earlier this year by Ellen Rogers. In between asking Lucy for an interview back in April and today, I’ve come to know and appreciate her photography (both what you see here and the flip side of her photographic coin). I’m struggling […]
I first heard about the 24x65mm panoramic format when I bought my Fujifilm GFX50S a few years back. The digital medium format camera is able to shoot in 24×65 cropped mode whilst keeping the raw file intact and uncropped. I thought it was fun to shoot but I didn’t really commit to the format that […]
I left an essential item off of the shopping list for my sub-$500 darkroom article: the print washer. As much as I am very proud of my less-than-$500 basement darkroom, it is a dry darkroom. I’m lucky, the water pipes are visible in the exposed ceiling, and plumbing parts are relatively inexpensive. I could run some plumbing and […]
Welcome to the 7th annual EMULSIVE Santa film and traditional photography gift exchange! A huge thank you to the nearly 800 players in over 50…
I have had the Nons Camera SL42 Mark II for 8 months and it has transformed my instant film photography. In this mid term user’s review I’ll explain why the Nons Camera has filled a niche of its own in my instant film camera line up.
In the 1960s half frame 35mm cameras enjoyed some popularity and several manufacturers offered models for this format. The idea was that the standard size of the 35mm frame (24×36 mm) was divided into two, which produced a frame half the size at 24×18 mm.
When looking back on my photographs, even as “recently” far as 2019, I feel an abstraction in what my role in these images ought to be. In the moment of pressing the shutter, I feel I am the photographer, I have taken this picture.
Announced at The Photography Show 2020 just moments ago, ILFORD Photo (with a little help from their friends at Paterson Photographic), is bringing a new pop-up darkroom and darkroom kit, both penciled in for release starting in early Q4 2021. And, for all of you waiting for EMULSIVE Secret Santa, there’s also a little bonus […]
The Pentacon looks just like a standard 35mm SLR, although it is a little taller, a little wider and a little deeper. It is also heavier although does not feel particularly unwieldy in use.
When you think about rolling car photography — the art of taking photos of moving vehicles, not just moving cars — while moving, using large format film probably won’t spring to mind as your first choice. Hell, 35mm film probably won’t either, let alone a ponderous format, exposed one sheet at a time into a box weighing 10lbs/4.5kg (without lens).
