These cameras go by many names, Alpha, Dynax and of course, we in North American call them Maxxum. They are the first commercially successful autofocus SLRs; they changed the came, they set the trend. Today James and Alex are again joined by Marwan of Silvergrain Classics, who isn't only a Leica user. He also uses Minolta Dynax (in his case) and joins us to share his wealth of knowledge as we go from the 7000 to the 7 and almost everything in between. Plus, with the return of Marwan, Silvergrain Classics has a special offer for all our listeners; if you order a subscription or individual issue of the Silvergrain Classics Magazine, use the code CCR21 at check out for 10% off your order.

On today's show, we have the amazing Becca who is the driving force behind the Northern Film Collective. She started shooting back in HS, starting with disposable cameras also dabbled with digital but found film far more fulfilling. Since starting she has focused mainly on 35mm until recently when she started working with medium format. The medium format kit she ended up getting is a Bronica SQ-Ai a solid workhorse camera. And her Canon T90 remains a long time favourite and an interesting beast within the FD system. Back in 2019, she launched an online community, the Northern Film Collective, which was launched to highlight Canadian film based photographers. And recently they published their first anthology piece earlier this year. And don't worry if you missed out on volume one, this summer they will be opening up for submissions for Volume 2.
