In the past I have occasionally misplaced a roll of film destined for the blog. A whole camera though? Oops. Week 72's results may be a bit delayed.
The Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic is a nice little camera that seems smaller than its name. I found it to be "point& shoot" easy to use. It has two shutter buttons, one on top and one on the front such that one is always in easy reach regardless of the orientation of the… Continue reading Instax 90 – Week 71 results
The Holga 120N was my entry into medium format. Prior to my return to film about 2 years ago, I knew nothing of things larger than 35mm. The Holga was an inexpensive way to learn. It features a zone focus plastic lens with symbols for Portrait, Single Person, Group, and Landscape. A switch selects different… Continue reading Holga 120N – Week 74

Aperture is selected by a standard ring on the lens. Shutter speed is adjusted using a ring on the camera body behind the lens in similar fashion to the rest… Continue reading Week 73 – Olympus OM-PC

The on/off switch is odd, and I often… Continue reading Minolta X-7A – week 69 results

It features a 1/125 shutter, f2.8 lens, and scale focus delineated in meters. Exposure is assisted by a series of symbols on the lens barrel in similar yet inverse fashion… Continue reading Week 72 – Beirette

This latest addition to Fuji's Instax line has a more refined look and better controls than previous Instax models, and it has the advantage of film being available in major discount stores.It features multiple shooting modes including portrait, sport, landscape, bulb,… Continue reading Week 71 – Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic
Well, the N8000 wasn't a complete failure. By that I mean it made images, and even decent ones. As a 3D camera, I'm not impressed. The amount of time needed to make a decent animation is more than I'm willing to spend. Perhaps better software could save it. As a camera in general, the 3D… Continue reading Nishika N8000 – week 68 results
