I was recently kindly gifted the Canon Sure Shot Classic 120 by someone who was no longer shooting film. It was in great condition and even came with a carry pouch, but after being stored in a cupboard for a while all the black rubber had decided to do that thing where it tries to turn itself back into its base elements and becomes the stickiest thing known to man. After a good 10mins of scrubbing with isopropyl the rubber was just like new again. I have to admit I like the styling on this camera it’s definitely better than a lot of those horrible champagne coloured 90s point and shoots. It feels quite robust too, and doesn’t feel too heavy. I was able to leave this in my bag or jacket pocket and not be constantly reminded it was there.

The digital level is a feature that really intrigued me on the relatively short list of stuff the Leica M10-P offers. I enjoy the odd bit of architectural photography, and so with this camera also allowing me to mount my Nikon shift lens with an adapter, I figured it might make a good candidate for this type of shooting.

We used to live on one of the oldest streets in the dead-center of Toulouse, a city in southwest France. In case you were unaware, the coffee in France generally sucks. Seriously, it’s not very good. But, in Toulouse, we were fortunate to have the city’s best espresso just a 5-minute walk from our front door. (If you’re ever there, go to Square Charles-de-Gaulle. You’ll find an espresso machine on a bike. Ask for “Figgy”—tell him I sent you.)

As you can see, these shots are quite simple and don't have much in common. To me, though, they have a precious value; in fact they represent the first time I ever shot using a Canon A-1 and a black & white film. That's why I'd like to tell you about my experience.I got interested in analog photography last summer, but the Canon A-1 entered my life only in November. The camera seemed practically new, but the man who sold it wasn't even sure it was functional. I bought it anyway, encouraged by the amazing bargain. Luckily, the camera worked. I've loved it since the second I lay eyes on it (or "her”, if we want to make it even more romantic).

Hey there, I'm a long-time 35mmc lurker, and, now, first time poster. A couple of weeks ago, at the tail end of a bottle of Jameson, I ham-fisted an email to Hamish offering my services, in a way that he could have, quite reasonably, ignored.Yet, here we are. Despite the fact that my intro included the sentence 'My writing style is relatively dense, occasionally excoriating'. So apologies in advance, my unknown, yet well loved, fellow image nerds.

Originally released in 1995 in Japan, the Konica K-mini sits right at the low end of the compact point & shoot spectrum; being the little brother of Big Mini. The K-mini has a fixed focus 28mm lens, an on-off switch and a shutter button, thatʼs about it. Everything else is automated.

It genuinely surprised me the other day when I mentioned this Kickstarter campaign to someone and they hadn’t heard of the photographer Giles Duley, or his Legacy of War project. Giles is a photographer who’s work I became familiar with via a television program that documented his journey as a photographer, and well, a person. I could never do his story justice, so I asked him if there was something I could link to. He sent me this video:

Like many of you, I have been on a fairly tortuous and at times expensive (and weighty) journey with cameras. For me, this was largely resolved last year with the purchase of a good secondhand Leica MP and a 35mm Summicron lens. I say largely resolved because I like to carry a camera most of the time and whilst the MP is good for most things it is still fairly bulky and generally hopeless in low light.

It's finally coming . A silver 7Artisans 35mm f/2. I have an excellent 35mm lens on hand currently, a Voigtlander 35mm F/2 Ultron, but the thought of the 7Artisans in silver excites me. I got the black one when it first came out and I always thought there should be a silver one because it would look so good. And now that it is actually happening, makes me think about my time with the 7Artisans 35mm f/2.

Kodak Alaris recently sent me a brick of Ektachrome E100 to play with. As someone who hasn’t shot much reversal film before, I promised a bit of a series of posts documenting my early experiences. I had it all planned out - first I was going to shoot a roll in something with a fancy evaluative meter, and then from there I would work my way up to shooting it with something a little more manual. I then got cocky, and just went straight for the Leica M3!
