When I posted about my experience on this camera I got a few folk pointing out that their EF-M was actually doing fine with Manual focus lenses. So in the spirt of fairness I got a new adaptor ring. An apology is due as I must now concede the camera does work with manual lenses. But only some adaptors and even then it’s a crap experience.Continue reading An Apology to The Canon EOS EF-M. It can mount via Some Adaptors. But it’s Still Pointless
Canon’s switch to the EF mount had let them neatly leapfrog their rivals like Nikon at the end of the 80’s. And during the 1990’s they would produce cameras that cornered both the high and lower end of the markets. The EF-M is not one of those. This probably is one of the most pointless SLR ever produced.Continue reading It’s A Canon, Jim, But Not As we Know It – The Canon EOS EF-M Review
Earlier this year Nons launched one of the more interesting analogue camera Kickstarters that I’ve seen. The SL42 is an interchangeable lens mount SLR that uses Instax instant film. The company have updated backers with some mixed news this week. Which means we’re gonna see this quite soon, with new good features but one major problem.Continue reading The Future’s Sooo Bright BUT You Gotta Wear Shades – The NONS SL42 Update
I’d been strangely unsatisfied with the Cresta 3, the third of Kodak UK’s Bakelite Brownies for 120 film. But could its glass lens predecessor be a better choice ? It is but you all need to brace youselves in more ways than one.Continue reading Brace Yerself – The Kodak Brownie Cresta II Review
The Lockdown has made work for idle hands and unfortunately I decided to buy new camera. Now I’m no stranger to cheesy lo-fi Cameras but this frankly was one of the worst cameras I’ve ever used. Not that it’s the worse optically or feature wise. This is just a scam and not a good one at that.Continue reading The 21st Century Scamera – the Unamed Supposedly 16MP Camera review
Lomography are probably the most prolific current analogue camera makers in the world. Many of their products have cult status. But a few cameras just haven’t cut the mustard and disappear. One of these is this little known number. But this shatters the whole notion that the Lomography Simple Use invented the re-loadable disposable class. And the Lomolitos might just be the better camera.Continue reading Raiders Of The Lost Lomos – The Lomolitos Review
Yet another 1980’s plastic bodied lo-fi shooter which was likely made by Haking for Hanimex. Launched in 1986 it is not exactly top flight stuff. But is there enough to appeal to lo-fi shooters ?Continue reading Jumpin’ Jack No-Flash – Hanimex 35 hs Review
So ever the eye for a bargain, I wondered how low you could go to get a digital SLR ? Over the years I’ve managed to snag some brilliant cameras both analogue and digital for peanut prices ? But how about a game changing Canon for less than the cost of Takeaway for 2.
But is it any good for 2020 ?
Kodak’s British arm was more than a mere sales outlet for George Eastman’s company. The company made its own cameras, not just British versions of the parent company. The Colorsnap cameras are to my knowledge, the only 35mm cameras the UK branch solely made. But are they worth your time ?Continue reading A Very British Affair – Kodak Colorsnap 35 Review
The A80 oddly is described as a beginner’s camera. But it comes with a host of feature seen on more advanced compact digital of the time. It offers quite a lot of bangs for a 2003 compact. But there are some issues you really need to know aboutContinue reading Go Go Budget Digital No 3 – Canon Power Shot A80
