Meow! We know everyone can't get enough of feline friends and we don't want you to wait any longer - Here's our friend Ron Lau's second part of his 'I Don't Have a Cat' photo series!
One day accidentally I met my old friend. We haven’t seen each other for a long time, so we spoke for a while about how we are doing and so on. I told him about my new sickness LOMOGRAPHY, Cameras and films. My friend remembered that somewhere at home he has old weird Russian camera. Next day he brought to me that little plastic box and gave me like a present.
Right- ho, now pay attention. I am becoming increasingly aware of this new fangled digital photography malarkey running about the place with its full screen sensors and 12 point whatsit thingumy bobs, auto focus hocus pocus, image stabilizing face recognition mumbo jumbo nonsense. And I for one have had enough. So the boffins in the lab put their thinking caps on and over a hot cup of tea and pipe invented a camera so fiendishly simple that a dead dog could use, well maybe not that simple but you get the drift. So with out further ado and no more egging the custard, Mildred draw the blind, Jerry start the projector lets admire the Coronet Twelve 20 in all its glory.
This is my go-to camera when I need an extra bit of control. This SLR is heavy as a brick, clunky, and oddly comforting to hold. A bit of a tank. On the outside it looks much like it's older Zenit siblings, but it's the inside that counts.
