5 Frames… On the high-impact polystyrene Ami 6×6 with Arista.EDU Ultra 100 (EI ??? / 120 format)

5 Frames… On the high-impact polystyrene Ami 6×6 with Arista.EDU Ultra 100 (EI ??? / 120 format) – by Brian DuBois I love Black and White film. Historically, it is where photography began and the process allows for so much personalization with multiple film and developer choices. As part of the historical fascination, I love […]

Shot 100 years ago: Developing Kodak Premo-Pack 4×5 film from a Rochester Premo B camera

Shot 100 years ago: Developing Kodak Premo-Pack 4×5 film from a Rochester Premo B camera ~ by Salvador Busquets One of the most fascinating things I’ve found by collecting cameras is that from time to time, there is some exposed — but not developed — film or glass plate. They often have spent decades inside […]

5 Frames… From my first roll of ILFORD HP5 PLUS on an old Nikon F-401 (35mm Format / EI 400 / Nikon Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5)

My first adventure with ILFORD HP5 PLUS ISO 400 black and white film was exactly what I hoped for — this film is great. I’m relatively new (less than 6 months) to analogue photography, or indeed any photography, and this film is known as one of the best all-rounders with good reason. I shot this […]

5 Frames… Of ILFORD Delta 100 Professional in the snow (35mm format / EI 50 / Nikon F + Nikon Nikkor-S 35mm f/2.8)

A fresh snow the night before set the scene for a perfect photographic outing in mid-December 2020. I grabbed my Nikon F with a 35mm lens, loaded it with ILFORD Delta 100 Professional and headed for Minden Park, a location I’d been eyeing for such an occasion. There was a fairly overcast sky which would […]

5 Frames… Of ILFORD FP4 PLUS in my first roll in my new Zenza Bronica SQ-B (120 Format / EI 125 / Zenzanon PS 80mm f/2.8)

I’ve been into photography since I was a student at university, it was during the time DSLRs started to become reasonably affordable and were all the rage. Long story short, I bought one and took a bunch of photos over the next few years, but there was always something missing. I got tired of the […]

5 Frames… Along downtown Toronto’s Bathurst Street on CineStill 800T (EI 800 / 35mm Format / Canon EOS 10)

Every Torontonian or Scott Pilgrim vs. The World fan should have some familiarity with the colourful Bathurst Street. As someone who lives alongside northern Bathurst, I had always wondered how I could channel my inner Edgar Wright and explore the area with my camera. The opportunity arose in Winter 2020, when I had to finish […]

5 Frames… On 30+ year expired Kodak Panatomic X driving through New Mexico (EI 32 / Nikon F3 / Voigtlander Nokton 58mm f/1.4)

The bulk loader was a deal and came with mystery film. It had a label that said ‘Plus X 125’ so I loaded a small test roll, shot it and developed it in Kodak D-76. The results were way underexposed but it looked like it developed properly and I could read ‘KODAK SAFETY FILM 5060’ […]

5 Frames… Of symbols of the German Democratic Republic 1990-expired ILFORD HP5 (120 Format / EI 80 / Pentacon Six + Carl Zeiss Jena Biometar 80mm f/2.8)

Since 2019 I’ve been photographing the remaining symbols of the German Democratic Republic using a stash of (non-PLUS) ILFORD HP5 medium format film that expired in 1990 — the same year as East Germany itself “expired.” I went full “Ossi” (German slang for Easterner) and chose as my kit the Pentacon Six with an 80mm […]
