In the first part of this series we’ve seen the much maligned Yashica Y35 actually prove it’s much better than proper toy cameras and even an awful £11 ‘new’ cam from eBay. But how does it fair against some genuine entry level digital cameras.

In 2017 a Kickstarter was launched bearing the name of Yashica, The resultant camera was much maligned before it even got to market and QC issues didn’t help once it arrived. It has become much derided. But is it that awful and is it no better than a kid’s toy camera ?

3 packs of instax square and some rather good crisp days later I’ve got a grasp of Diana Instant. But does it live up to the Hype as being the lomographer’s instant camera. And does it stay true to the Diana concept & style ?

I find myself weirdly reviewing genuinely brand new analogue film camera. It’s also an instant one (a first here !). Lomography’s latest Diana series camera arrived yesterday. Whilst I haven’t been able to test it fully, I’m starting to get a feel for this Kickstarter shooter.

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.

Before the Kickstarter Yashica Y35 project even closed there were negative rumblings and those have intensified over this year reaching fever pitch when the camera shipped. But what did folk really expect for ~$120USD ? Are we making realistic appraisals of this camera with too high expections

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.

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.
