Pandemic Shooting – The Corona 35r Review

Possibly but accidentally the worse camera to wield at the moment landed in lap a few months ago. When the Corona 35r was launched, the term Coronavirus wasn’t even know even in the more benign common cold virus form. But is the 35r to be sniffed at or wrapped in a hankie and binned ?

Rock, Paper, Scissored ? -Paper Shoot Camera Review

As a lover of kitsch photography products i stumbled across the Paper Shoot whilst looking for older digital cameras with a lo-fi feel. I’d never heard of it but turns out it has gone pretty hip (my words not hers) according to my teenage daughter. But is this eco friendly basic digital a contender ?

Elemental Decision- Kodak M35 Review

I’m Sorry I goofed about this one. The M35 launched in a variety of funky colours in 2019. A simple single element plastic camera I kinda missed it at the time. I assumed it was just another version of the Harman reloadable my least favourite reusable disposable. Turns out I was wrong. This and it’s twin the M38 are a cut above the reloadables and may now be the best value model in it’s class.

The Instax Comback – Nons SL42 Mark II Review

Back in 2020 Cheeky Hong Kong based Nons gave us one of the most fantastically innovative camera of the past 10 years with the original SL42. An Instax mini shooting SLR that could use most manual focus 35mm SLR lenses ever made. But it was seriously flawed.

But they’re back with the Mark II. And they’ve almost completely sorted it out giving us one glorious instant shooter.

EZ Rider ? – The Harman EZ35 Review

Those plucky folk at Harman Technologies (the folk behind Ilford and Kentmere films) are back again with yet another cheap camera. But the EZ35 is not just yet another near clone film company simple camera. It has a winder and other features. It perhaps gives us some encouragement that things are actually quite rosy in the the analogue camera world. But is it good as a shooter as well ?

Poundland Digitals – 1- Fujifilm DX-10

I’ve looked at picking up film cameras for peanuts before on this site. I thought I could see what I could get for a pound or less in digital cameras. The DX-10 is a 1999 early consumer model came through the door for just 99p before postage. But is this camera that once cost £250 worth a look ?

A Budget Bridge Or Pier To Nowhere- Fujifilm FinePix S3000 review

it’s 2003 and film is still King but the slide towards Digital dominance was starting. Consumer digital cameras were becoming the norm rather than a rarity. And S3000 was the latest of Fujifilm’s budget bridge numbers. But 17 years later is it worth a gander as budget bridge ?

The line between genius and Madness -The Nons SL42 Review

The Nons SL42 is arguably the most important analogue camera to hit the market in recent years. And if the rumour of the demise of the F6 are true, the only mass produced SLR with interchangeable lenses in production. It however doesn’t use 35mm film. This bad boy shoots Instax. And whilst this has flaws this seriously changes the game

The Show Must Go On ? – The Verdict On The Dubblefilm Show

2020 has flung us some pretty nasty curveballs. But this is a somewhat more pleasant pitch at an unsuspecting world. I’ve already unboxed the Dubblefilm Show, the newest camera in town. But how good is it when the film’s been processed ?
