Konica FT-1 Motor

Previously, I got into the Konica SLR lens as they are cheap and plentiful. The only Konica SLR that I had, FT-1, wasn’t that great of a camera, so I shot only on the Olympus XA2. Over the years, I obtained more Konica SLR bodies (always came with a nice lens), but none of them […]

Konica FS-1

I was a poor graduate student and wanted to buy some sharp lenses. In 2017, I was shooting with a Sony NEX-6 paired with only an excellent Zeiss 32mm lens and a decent Sigma Art 19mm lens. Mirrorless cameras, especially full frame, are dominating the photography world. I enjoyed both of the lenses I owned, […]

Olympus XA2

I know the few steps that got me to this point, but I don’t remember when the journey started. This is an important moment, because Olympus XA2 is when I decided that I’ll begin to shoot film seriously. Serious not in the sense that all my the shots are professional and on point, besides, I […]

Fujifilm Fujicolor Pro 400H

I joined the film game only recently. Film stocks, at least the good stuff, have been on the declined for more than a decade. The choices on the market have not changed for awhile. That is, until Jan 2021, when Fujifilm decided to pull the plug on Pro 400H, due to a lack of ingredients. […]

Kodak Gold 200

Someone told me this is not even the cheapest crappy film by Kodak – that honors go to Kodak Color Plus 200. No matter – there are no bad film in 202X. Consumer and professional grade films just render things differently these days, and you can only blade the camera. With that said, I would […]
