They aren't flashy, pretty, but they do a good job. Like a Reliant K, they get you from point A to B without trouble or style. But they at least do an excellent job in the field. On this episode, the gang discusses the Pentax ME Super, Nikkormat FT, Olympus Pen EE-S2, and Yashica Minister III. We also bring up a new scanner starting to show up in Airports that will destroy your film if it goes through. And we sit down with special guest host Byran!
Bill and Alex Smith sit down to discuss the camera that started it all, well at least the "System" SLR. And while the Nikon F was based on several advances in the past, it is solidified today as an icon and the camera that started Nikon down the Professional SLR path.
You knew it would come but the gang finally tackles Instant Photography, from Polaroid to Instax to Polaroid Originals!
You wanted more chemistry so we sat down and brought in some more, from a jack of all trades to highly specialised!
As the days turn shorter and the skies grow greyer the gang tackles those fast films that help chase away those winter blues and help with indoor work. We also discuss the fine art of pushing film and push-processing film.
There's a certain look to a TLR, and when it comes to TLR cameras nothing matches the Rollei line. So on our episode today, the gang takes a look down the rabbit hole that is the history of Rolleiflex and Rolleicord Twin-Lens cameras.
We've covered Large Format in bits and pieces across our five seasons, but never sat down and done a back-to-basics. So James and Alex sit down and cover (almost) everything you need to know about Large Format from the camera types, lenses, equipment, movements, and developing. This is a primer, your 101 course.
A solo episode today as John covers one of his favourite cameras, the War-Time hero, the Kodak Medalist.
John and Bill sit down to talk to Stephen Dowling, the man behind the website Kosmo Foto and the driving force behind bringing Kosmo Foto Mono 100 to the market. The three sit down around our interview table to discuss everything about the site, how it came to be, the man behind the site, and the reasons behind bringing Mono 100 to the market. Along with the inspiration behind the awesome Soviet Style graphics. If you haven't visited Kosmo Foto, we certainly recommend visiting and following the awesome content.
Continuing our chemical fix, the team discusses Kodak HC-110, Rodinal, and Pyrocat-HD!
