The gang tackles several cameras from the Canon line, and we quickly realize that between us we don't have much experience with shooting Canon! This episode covers such Cameras as the F-1, F-1N, EOS A-2, and the FTb. And if you're curious about the episode graphic, well that's the original Canon logo from 1934 when the company was known as Camera Kwanon. The name "Canon" wasn't adopted until 1935.

The camera of choice for many students and of high school darkrooms, the group tackles the wonderful world of Pentax, but we avoid the iconic K1000 going for some different but just as amazing options from the Pentax Line including the Spotmatic, KX, ME, 645, and the giant 67II! We also discuss the latest offering from Cinestill, their 800T in Medium (120) Format!

Once again the gang dives into the rabbit hole of Nikon this time tackling the mid-20th Century line of Nikkormat cameras.

It was bound to happen; the gang tackles the iconic Hasselblad 500 series or V-Series. We are mostly focusing on the original 500c and 500c/m. But don't worry, this isn't a fanboy episode. We do get rather critical of the camera.
As much as we like to talk about cameras and films that we're fans of, sometimes you just have to let it all out. So we're talking cameras and films that we just can't bring ourselves to like.
The Nikon system is somewhat of a rabbit hole, but we're going to tackle a small part of it. John Meadows and Alex Luyckx are joined by Bill Smith as they take on the Nikon Professional SLRs from the 1959 Nikon F to the 1998 Nikon F5.
