In 2023, lo-fi analogue cameras were pretty much everywhere offering a disposable like experience but in a reusable more ECO package. But Ilford Imaging launched 2 disposables in the last 2 years. And the latest one of those was a half frame. Welcome to the Ilford Ilfocolor Rapid Half Frame. Diptych image taken in December 2023. Click on image for full size So is this from folks who make Ilford film then ? You’d think so but No. This is sold by a Swiss company called Ilford Imaging not the makers of the film products who are called Harman Technology. The two companies arose separately from the ..read more

Copying is not flattery. Why does Photography Newspaper keep copying other websites without permission rather than write their own stuff ?

I was altered by a fellow blogger that my posts were being scalped and posted as original content by a website called Photography Newspaper. This happens for time to time and pretty quickly these sites disappear but it’s annoying to see your content used without permission. So how did I fight back ? So If you’re reading this on Photography Newspaper site, they didn’t write this. My names Alan and I posted this on my blog at austerityphoto.co.uk. What you’re looking at is my page being copied completely by these cowboys. I’d suggest you might wanna get your photo news from sites that can actual ..read more

All Fur Coat but Nae Knickers – The Lomography Lomomatic 110 Review

The old Glaswegian saying is very apt here. All (aw) fur coat.. was originally a dig at the folk in Edinburgh, they look fancy but they’re just as plain underneath. And the Lomomatic 110, the second camera released by Lomography this year suffers from that. Good looking and it might be one of the best spec’ed 110 camera this century but it’s woeful optics let it down. Lomomatic 110 with Color Tiger CN200. Carlisle April 2024 No Expects the 110 Format When Lomography brough 110 back from the film format grave it was a bold move. 110 was never intended for the photogs.

A Mirror, Darkly – Konica-Minolta DiMAGE Z2

These are the voyages of budget camera hunting. The mission to explore strange used gear, to seek out budget numbers. So how about a 1 quid digital bridge camera with a very quirky LCD set up from 2004. Offering a 4MP and X10 zoom alongside the weirdest EVF in the business, the Z2 was actually reasonably priced with a street price of $380USD/£240GBP according to DPReview. Mined arrived boxed with Brucie Bonuses but some issues for meer quid. But should set phaser to stun or bin Macro mode shooting is quite pleasing with this camera. Oddly this has a rare colour cast issue for an outdoor shot ..read more

A 110 to avoid- Skina Super Color T601 Review

It’s rare for me to be so critical of a camera . But given not surprisingly old 110 cameras are quite available still for peanuts, there are plenty of better fish to fry. And given the Skina is by far the worst 110 I’ve ever used, trust me save your pennies.. One of the better images but the subject is 1-2m away. T601 with Lomography Color Tiger CN200.

The Cutback Diana – Lomography Lomourette Review

The Lomourette isn’t technically fully launched yet but you can already get your hands on Lomography’s replacement for the Diana Mini. But it’s the same camera with less features The Lomourette’s biggest issue is existence the Diana Mini. If the latter never existed, I’d probably be happier with this Diana series camera. I’d have though fun little hommage. But even then there are a few issues… But it’s not This half frame diptych has some of the best images I took across. Lomourette with XP2 2024.

SLR for a Quid in 2024 ? – Canon EOS 500N (Rebel G/New Kiss)

I commented on Flickr as important as it for Leica to continue to launch cameras like the M6 reboot, it was hardly gonna attract the kids. That’s especially true when you can still by a decent AF SLR for the price of a takeaway pizza. Some said I was wrong those days are gone. But I stand by that comment. But even I surprised myself with the EOS 500N. A SLR for a quid in 2023 and they still sell for as little as 99p despite being rather good.

The Death of the Diana Mini
Canny Cameras

I’ve been musing about the new Lomourette camera. It is heavily based on the Lomography’s Diana Mini, a Lo-Fi beast with a bit of cult following. Turns out it wasn’t only based on the Mini. It’s replacing it. The Diana Mini is dead. I’d had some email chat with Lomography’s press team about the Lomourette. They were surprised to hear me mention it and I get that as their big focus has been on the new 110 shooting Lomomatic. Lomography Lomourette. The successor to the Diana Mini. Looks similar but is stripped down. I speculated that the Lomourette was being test marketed in Asia but within my e ..read more

“That looks a Diana mini” you might be tempted to say. And you’re right. Lomography’s latest camera is a tweaked Diana Mini shooting half frame images. But you’d struggle to know the Lomourette existed. And why the name change? Let’s open up the box and explore. This is only a unboxing review and my thoughts. A full review will follow. But I’ve some niggles, not least the name. So we’ll get to the camera in a mo. 3 versions of the camera exist. This is Water Lilies one is £10GBP more expensive than the basic classic colour one and the light green Picnic edition. I suspect that’s ‘cos they use ..read more

Every Little Helps- Technika SH-340T Review

Before some of you get excited this little digital is not made by Lindoff. It was sold by UK supermarket Tesco in the 2000’s as one of several cheap digital devices sold under the Technika brand. But how does the SH-340T, a basic 3.1MP stack up in 2024 For non British readers, Tesco is the UK’s largest supermarket commanding around 27% of the UK market share with top dog status that has shifted very little over the last few decades. It sells quite a range of non food items notably these days clothing and kitchenware. A decade back you could also pick up a wide range especially electronics alth ..read more
