Brandy B, whom you may know from the Film Photo Geeks podcast sits down to talk with Chrissie, Bill, and John about cameras, photography, and life.
We're back with another long episode! This time around we have Matt from Reveni Labs to talk about his new Kickstarter campaign and the Reveni Labs Spot Meter, followed by prolific photographer Anil Mistry who brings along a large pile of cameras that are among his favourites and talking about his new book based around his photos of Brighton, England. It's worth the episode length!
If you're a member of several Facebook groups connected to the film photography community such as the Toronto Film Shooters, Negative Positives, and Large Format Photography Podcast than you will have seen today's guest's excellent work. Jamie Marcellus is a recent addition to the film photography community but has jumped in with both feet shooting 35mm initially but is now getting into experimental large-format work with inexpensive film, direct positive paper and even dry plate. Alex and John sit down with Jamie to discuss his love of photography and his inspiration and what he's up to next.
Bill and Chris kick off our 7th season with a well-known photographer on Instagram, Danielle, aka TheGirlWithTooManyCameras and her mission to bring more women film photographers into the public eye! They discuss Danielle's own photography and her desire to showcase the talent that is often left outside in a primarily male-dominated hobby.

If you're a member of any film camera group on Facebook, you'll know our guest for today's show. The man who has a thousand camera and is rumoured to smash them all after writing a review. His reviews are the stuff of legend, today Bill and Alex sit down with the one, the only, Mr Mike Eckman!
Matt's back! Yes, local camera builder, inventor and overall mad scientist, Matt Bechberger joins John and James to discuss his process on building homebrew cameras and what bits and pieces that make the best parts from broken and non-functioning cameras that help in his methods and spare parts bin.
Comrades! It's the return of the Communist Camera Revival and we have a bit of different episode today, Alex sits down with three fellow photographers to talk about all aspects of Photographic industry that grew in the USSR and the Soviet Bloc from the 1920s to the final collapse in 1991. And more importantly what you can still get and find today from Cameras to Film. And the surprising fact that there is a lot of stuff out there that is still new in box and is not as bad as a lot of people think. Don't believe the propaganda folks, the revolution will be podcasted. If you're wondering why the October Revolution is being published in November, that's because if you look at the actual date of the October Revolution is took place on the 7th of November (one week ago) in 1917, but according to the Julian Calendar was on the 25th of October. The October Revolution or Red October marked the opening of the Russian Civil War.
Despite everything, the past couple of years have been wonderful for film photography. Both with films being reintroduced like Kodak E100 and a new version of Fuji Acros (Fuji Acros 100 II). Plus you have folks like Lomography re-rolling iconic motion picture films ORWO UN54 (Potsdam) and N74 (Berlin) and there's the new production level run of FilmFerrania P30. You have Ilford introducing Ortho Copy as Ortho Plus in 120 and 35mm formats, it's been a good year! And today we are again joined by the awesome Jess Hobbs!

Today's episode features, the Mamiya C220, Mamiya Universal, Mamiya RB67, Mamiya m645, Mamiya 645 Pro, and Mamiya 645 AF-D!
