You can now buy fresh film for a Quid on some high streets once more. Well at least in a retail park in Stoke. But is it actually worth your time?
I am a muppet.
I got my hands on Yashica’s new film range and I though a child free trip to the Lake District would be perfect to test them out.
Shame I missed the lack of DX code on the films including the 400ISO B&W. I shoved that film into my F75 which defaulted to 100 ISO. Luckily some saints of the lab world came to my rescue.

Look – it is an easy mistake to make and trust me no one should be given a hard time for doing so (Although it does get a bit funny when the likes of Adorama sell 120mm film). But to be clear 120 film is not 120mm film.
But then again 120 film hasn’t always been called 120 film. In fact if you tried to buy 120 film in the early 1900’s no one would know what you were talking about.

Been a busy few weeks both photography and in life. I’ve realised the regular update is becoming a a bit irregular and given it’s almost 2 months since I last did one so say farewell to the analogue week and step inside from the rain to the warmth of the Analogue Arms and grab a pint or coffee from the bar as I give you a run down of what I’ve been up to and some other news that’s worth follow

Since my last posting irregular update a lot has been happening both in the world of film and in the wider world. This post is a bit Bond themed with news that Bond 25 inches ever closer with news on the new Villain and confirmation the the Fantastic Phoebe Waller-Bridge will be co-re-writing the script. So grab your Martini (shaken not stirred) and pull up a seat.

Last year’s Yashica Y35 launch led to one of the biggest outpouring of anger the photography community has ever seen. Whilst the Y35 wasn’t as bad some the vitriol, it was far from perfect. So there was some surprise when rumours of a Yashica branded film. But they’ve now pushed it even further with the launch of a Kickstarter for 2 new films, an analogue camera and the promise of more.
But What’s the catch ?

My apologies as this is way late but it has been a busy month as you’ll see. This post we’ll have a couple of trips away to discuss some new & old cameras and why I’m probably never buying Lomography 120 film ever again. But worse still it looks like the Lomography Film is now dead on the UK High Street too.
Oh and some other worthy reviews to check out and a DIY project for the darkroom bunnies.

Love is in the air this week for many reasons (and not just the commercialised gift day) . There’ a lot of Nikon love in our picks this week including a soviet take on that. But also we get a run down of classic series of zoom compacts, the maths behind pushing or pulling and good news for medium format shooters. There’s also some sustainable shooting going on… Pull up a stool.

I’ve had a busy week selling my old house so sorry no posts in between these round ups. However this week we have some cameras you probably have never heard of, a bargain hunt in Sydney, award winning shots and either the restoring or murder of a Nikon. There’s also some good news for you DIY D&P folk, a hack to give you cheap Xpan fun and a critical take on that hip film. Pull up a chair.
