5 Frames… With the half-time-half-frame Konica Auto-Reflex (Fujifilm NEOPAN 400 / 35mm Format / EI 400)

According to Cameraquest, The Konica Auto-reflex is a full- and half-frame 35mm SLR camera made in 1966. It was the world’s first focal plane shutter 35mm SLR with automatic exposure and interchangeable lenses… Johnny Sisson brought it to my attention, and after a search in one of the Facebook camera groups, I was offered one for sale by a […]

5 Frames… Of textures at the boatyard on Fuji Pro 400H (120 Format / EI 400 / Mamiya C330 Professional F + Mamiya Sekor 80mm f/2.8)

My Father was a forensic photographer and I first took a picture in about 1968 using his Pentax Spotmatic. When I was a teenager my Father bought a Mamiya C330 Professional F, which I thought terribly old-fashioned, being a TLR and having no exposure meter. I bought a Mamiya 645 Pro and three lenses which […]

5 Frames… At Wisley Gardent on Fuji Superia 1600 35mm Format / EI 1600 / Nikon F90X + Nikkor 135mm f/2.8 AI + Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 AI)

This is by way of being a plea to @fujifilmeu to bring this magical film stock back into production! I now only have one or two rolls left, I can’t think of another film I’d more like to see resurrected. I was in London’s lavish Fuji showroom (Longacre) just a few days ago, the charming […]

5 Frames… Of my daughter a few weeks before harvest in Tirora on Fuji C200 (35mm Format / EI 200 Canon FTB QL + Canon 50mm f/1.4)

Hi, I’m Prabhahar Raja from India. I see myself as a passionate photographer although my profession is nowhere related to that passion. I have been into portrait photography for a few years now with my Fujifilm XH1 but the most interesting part in my photographic journey is, I have gotten into film photography. I have […]

5 Frames… On a Suzuki Optical Co. Press Van with expired Fuji NEOPAN 100 ACROS (120 Format / EI 100 / Asahi Kogaku Takumar f/3.5 75mm)

The Suzuki Optical Co. Press Van is a rare but typical Japanese rangefinder built from 1953 to 1954. It is a mechanical beauty, the first with a fully automatic frame counter on the top of the camera. The camera has two viewfinders: one coupled for the focus, and one for the framing. It has no […]

5 Frames… Of ILFORD SFX 200 Developed in Cinestill’s Df96 monobath with a Fuji GS645S and a red filter

The Fuji GS645S Professional was a camera I had an interest in ever since it was introduced back in 1984. It was a nice medium format camera that’s ready for anything with its “cow bar” that wrapped around the lens. The camera has a fixed 60mm f/4 lens with rangefinder focusing. Holding the camera normally, […]

5 Frames… Of portraits on Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 (35mm Format / EI 400 / Canon EOS 50E + Canon EF 50mm f/1.4)

First things first, I have to confess that I am 80% a digital shooter. It’s more convenient because I work mostly with models, and therefore, attention to detail is important, so I like to occasionally be able to check the results on the LCD screen. Recently, I did some cleaning up in my studio and […]

5 Frames of the smallest town in Germany: Blankenberg on respooled Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS (Kodak Medalist II / 120 format / EI 100)

“My love affair with photography began about 45 years ago, parallel with my love affair with my first girlfriend. My passion for photography never ended. For about twenty years I used medium format cameras for the best quality feasible at the time, mostly 4.5×6 and 6×7. The lab process was also done in my own […]

5 Frames… Of everyday household objects in a tiny “Studio” on Fujifilm Superia Premium 400 (EI 400 / 35mm Format / Olympus OM-1N)

I don’t know about the rest of you but the COVID-19 lockdown pretty much took away my photography mojo for a while. I mean, when you are worried about the health of your family, friends and yourself, these things are going to take a back seat. What I found eventually once we settled into the […]
