Bretz Contrast Film 1 roll Review

Of the 3 films that the nice folk at Analogue wonderland sent me. This has been the  hardest to shoot and the oddest results of the three. This a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde film and I’m still not sure what I think. And that’s a bit to do with me goofing with the gear.

A Brief History Of Photography By Objects – 7 – The Edison Kinetoscope 1893

The Kinetoscope seems initially an odd choice.  This early motion picture viewer was not the first to  device to show moving pictures. However it’s development would help drive the founding of the motion picture industry and set standards that are still used in the movies and still photography. But it’s also a story of intrigue, a Scotsman and possible murder…. Continue reading A Brief History Of Photography By Objects – 7 – The Edison Kinetoscope 1893

5 of the Most Under-Appreciated Photography Films Today – Guest Post By Paul McKay of Analogue Wonderland

We are living in a wonderful time for film photography. 2017 saw the launch of more new film products than any year since the 1990s, and 2018 has already broken that record with 3 months still to go. We have been treated to old favourites coming back (Tmax 3200, Ektachrome) as well as a continued flow of new brands and extensions (Bretz Skyline, Street Candy, JCH Streetpan 120, Yodica). In fact we currently have over 180 different films listed on our site – and by the end of the year we expect that number to exceed 200!

But amongst all the classics: the HP5s, Velvias, Portra, the wildly popular Instax range, and more – there are some hidden gems that we feel do not get the attention and the love that they deserve.

Kosmic Clean up – A one roll review of Kosmo Foto Mono

You might remember those nice folk at Analogue Wonderland sent me a box of 3 very different rolls of films recently. Amongst these is Kosmo Foto’s B&W film launched last year a 100 ISO Panchromatic number. So I loaded up into my trusty Nikon F55 and headed to the Solway coast with the weans to do our bit for the environment and to test out this film.

Le Clic est Freak ! – The Le Clic 170/C170 Review

At first glance things don’t look promising.  We’ve a basic all plastic camera with its basic design and no features. It also come with that badge of dubious quality ‘Japan Lens’.  So if you’re a fan of plastic cameras is it worth your time to click this le Clic ?

Credit Crunch ? – Barclaycard Camera Review

I’ve a bit of a soft spot for the old Barclaycard Visa Camera despite it being pretty basic and prone to breaking. However I’ve been long aware there is another Barclaycard film camera. So when I came across a couple of these for peanuts I couldn’t resist. Continue reading Credit Crunch ? – Barclaycard Camera Review

Mini Brexit ? – Konica EU-mini Review

I’ll honestly avoid being too political about Brexit here.  But as I type this the UK is still in the process of negotiating its departure from the European Union .  Whether this leads to a prosperous future,  disaster or somewhere in between remains to be seen. But is this oddly apt camera from Konica, a  Negotiation Disaster or Brexit busting Deal. Continue reading Mini Brexit ? – Konica EU-mini Review
