Re: Anyone using a Holga?

Thanks, and yes, absolutely on the imperfection!

The first one was Fuji Pro 400H - no filter, that's just the way it came out shooting into the sun.

The second was Lomography Color Negative...

Re: Anyone using a Holga?

Love my Holga 120N. Don't use it as much as I should.

Re: Pinhole digital photography

I'd love to try salt printing - and platinum/palladian. But I'd need to get a 10x8 camera. I have three 5x4 cameras but while 5x4 might be a good place to start I'd pretty soon want to do bigger. And...

Re: Pinhole digital photography

Digital pinhole always seems a bit pointless to me. And even more so fake pinhole effects. You can't beat a 'proper' pinhole photo. :)

Re: In praise of WEX

Hi Simon, yes it is a fantastic camera. I sort of bought it by accident in that I saw one on Ebay with a P25 back with one low bid with an hour to go. Made a bid that I thought was bound to be beaten...

Re: In praise of WEX

I've also been impressed by Wex. I bought a Hasselblad HC 80mm from them. When I received it the lens was in much better condition than I was expecting from the description on their web site. And...

Ah, but does it have a 10 page artist statement to 'explain' it? :)

Re: Art, or do you have you a diferent opinion?

Ah yes...blimey those are old photos, really should get round to updating my profile.

I'm thoroughly enjoying my journey too, especially since I've gone back to film.

Re: Art, or do you have you a diferent opinion?

Indeed, I love the 'arty' side of film photography too using Holgas, pinhole etc, as well as the more precise side of things with a Hasselblad or large format. Still not sure that makes it 'art'...

Re: Art, or do you have you a diferent opinion?

I backed the original kickstarter and have no regrets doing so. I didn't buy any more packs after I received the first one though for two reasons:
1) It was prohibitively expensive.
2) There were...

Re: Just aquired a OM1-n with Zuiko 50mm, f1.8 lens

Whenever this topic comes up on film photography fourms the general consensus seems to be that whilst Wein Cells will work, they are relatively expensive and don't last very long. Most people seem to...

Re: Test Of Time

On a similar note my wife was clearing out her mother's house recently after she went into a nursing home. She found a box of slides, a mixture of Kodachrome and Ilford. The Ilford slides weren't...

Re: The lure of the uncomplicated camera

I think GAS gets worse, though. I keep acquiring gear that either costs nothing or very little! But it does save on cost.

The only thing I disagree with in that article is the assumption that...

Re: The lure of the uncomplicated camera

You may well be right about that. Whilst it's easy to get swept up in the nostalgia for Kodachrome the simple truth is that Velvia was a better choice for many photograhers, not least because of the...

Re: The lure of the uncomplicated camera

Although flatbeds are never going to match dedicated film scanners for quality, the Epson Perfection series, 4990, V500, V700, V800 etc, probably come pretty close. I'm happy with my 4990 and it will...

Re: The lure of the uncomplicated camera

I hope they price it competitively. Fuji have had a monopoly on transparency film for too long. Provia and Velvia is around 12-15 a roll, which is why I never shoot those in 35mm. Even Precisa has...

Re: The lure of the uncomplicated camera

It is indeed Simon.

I had a look at some Leicas at Red Dot in London a couple of years ago. I actually preferred the handling of the M5 over the M6 and M5s don't seem to have increased in value...
