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 […]

Minolta Weathermatic Dual 35

I did not own a Go Pro and I needed to go to the beach. Well, let me rephrase that.

I decided that Go Pro is too mainstream and expensive for one session, while disposable camera gave such crappy results […]

Fujifilm Fujicolor Pro 400H

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 […]

Fujifilm Superia Venus 800

Evil company (Fujifilm) wouldn’t release ISO 800 color film in the rest of the world. (but they have them for Instax…) Someone also mentioned this film is color corrected for Asian skin tone (yellow). I’m not sure if any of them are true, but I know Superia Venus 800 can only be found in Japan, […]
