Coming soon…

Apologies for not much activity this week, as well as the house move I have also had a family loss.

I have some catching up to do later as many photography related things are going on.

I have several cameras to try and post about;

  • Polaroid Colorpack II (thanks Jim at Down the Road)
  • Contax III
  • Pentacon FM (Contax FM)
  • Zeis Ikon Voigtlander 500SE
  • Ricoh 35 ZF

I have a set of macro bellows to play with.

I have some projects I’d like to start on.

Also Thanks to Jim at Down the Road I have been linked to from Petapixel.

So please bare with me and I will be posting some of the above and more soon.

 

Cameras I need! – okay want

As I am unlikely to successfully take and prep many photos during the house move I was thinking what else I could post and due to some other blogs I have been reading my mind wandered to cameras I would love to own. Continue reading “Cameras I need! – okay want”

Cameras: Voigtlander Bessa RF

I got this recently and love it so it’s jumped to the top of my list for reviewing.

Accidentally did a double exposure recently, I kind of quite like it though

Cameras: Voigtlander Vito B

So this is the very camera that started it off for me.  Sure I had used the family 126 Kodak Instamatic on holiday when we were growing up and the first actual camera I owned was a 110 format shop own brand from Boots (those cameras were so cool at the time) but when my father let me have his Voigtlander it took me to the next level.

Cameras: Voigtlander Vitomatic

This is my first post first post trying to document my camera collection in a little more detail and I thought I would start with one of my favourites. I am a fan of Voigtlanders and have 5 in my collection.  This was my second one and my first Rangefinder. Continue reading “Cameras: Voigtlander Vitomatic”

Film is not dead – time to scan

So as you may know from previous posts I have a love for old film cameras and have many in my collection (actually I have added a few since the last mention but I’ll cover that in another post).

Recently (since the beginning of the year) I have been taking some of them out for a bit of exercise which has been fun.  But, that doesn’t get them seen anywhere outside my house now does it. Continue reading “Film is not dead – time to scan”

PoF: Object

Okay so I had an ulterior motive for this subject. Continue reading “PoF: Object”

More cameras?

I know, I can’t help it.

I have added five more cameras since this post and sold one so now I’m at 29. Continue reading “More cameras?”

A new addition to the collection

Picked up this Voigtlander Brillant recently in lovely condition.   Continue reading “A new addition to the collection”

Photos on Friday (PoF): Twenty four cameras

Daily Photo Challenge #19 – Double

Not exactly double but they are definitely siblings.
These are two of my favourite cameras.   On the left is the camera I have owned for the longest and was my father’s before he gave it to me; this is probably the camera that got me into photography in the first place.
On the right is one that I bought a year or two ago and is a really nice little rangefinder.  I have been using this one recently with good results.
