5 Frames… At the farm on ILFORD HP5 PLUS and Voigtlander ULTRON SL II 40mm F/2 (35mm format / EI 400 / Nikon FM3A) – by Michael

I was recently in a farming community outside Columbia, Missouri, where my in-laws have a wonderful farm. It’s where my wife, my daughter, and I go to get away from the city and relax. My mother-in-law had just returned from a cattle auction the week before and she brought several new cows home with her. […]

5 Frames… Of portraits on ILFORD HP5 PLUS (120 Format / EI 320 / Green #11 filter Bronica SQ-A + Zenzanon PS 150mm + S-18 extension tube) – by Cameron Breze

These frames were selected from a recent test shoot on my new (to me) Bronica SQ-A and first medium format shots that I had ever taken with extension tubes. I began my film journey mainly by accident; I had taken digital photos for years prior to giving film a shot. It had never crossed my […]

Mini-review: The RETO Ultra Wide & Slim – Experiences and a change in attitude to P&S cameras

Traditionally I have avoided the point and shoot class of camera because I wanted to be able to make my own exposure decisions. I either shoot Manual, or in Aperture Priority modes with one finger on the exposure compensation button. Most of my cameras date from the 20th century and most of those are entirely manual. In […]

5 (or 6) Frames… Of Thai urban and Rural Scenes with ILFORD SFX 200 and a Pentacon Six TL (120 Format / EI 200 / Carl Zeiss Jena MC Biometar 80mm f/2.8)

Despite a number of potential problems, I bought a Pentacon Six medium format SLR earlier in 2021. I had wanted one for a while and the article by Ludwig Hegelstein here on Emulsive convinced me that, the problems were manageable. I bought one of these solid East German medium format cameras that look a lot […]

5 Frames… Of Seri Menanti on ILFORD Delta 400 Professional (120 format / EI 400 / Hasselblad 500C + Planar C 80mm f/2.8)

I recently acquired the Hasselblad 500C and was itching to have a crack at ILFORD Delta 400 Professional (recently expired) at box speed after having tried Bergger Pancro 400 in my search of an ISO 400 film to be part of my kit. Armed with the Hasselblad, light meter and tripod, I headed south, out […]

5 Frames… Around Largo da Memória on ILFORD FP4 PLUS and a Walzflex TLR 6×6 (120 Format / EI 125 / Walz 75mm f/3.5) – by André Leite Coelho

Along with NEOPAN 100 ACROS, ILFORD FP4 PLUS was one of the first BW films I tried back in 2004, when I started to take photographs. As a consequence, even today I find myself imagining the scenes I see as fine-grained pictures, with the vast midtones of grays these two film stocks produce. Recently I’ve […]

5 Frames… Of Fuhr’s Huette: a hut built under a fallen rock on ILFORD HP5 PLUS (EI 400 / 120 Format / Rolleiflex SL66)

Shortly before Christmas 2020 my friend Erik visited me and we went on a photo trip to Fuhr’s Huette in Idar-Oberstein, a small hut built under a massive fallen rock in 1702. I chose the Rolleiflex SL66 with the Zeiss Distagon 4/50 because of the narrowness at this place. And for film, the well-known ILFORD […]
