Over this past summer, I took a Black and White photo class at my college. A week before the class I was panicking because I didn't have a 35mm SLR to use in the class. I work at Starbucks and one of my regular customers, Mike, happened to come in one day and I told him my problem. "I have this old Canon I don't use any more and I've been wanting to sell it. How about I let you borrow it and if you like it, you can buy it?" That sounded awesome to me. So long story short, Mike ended up just giving me the camera and 3 lenses for nothing(50mm f/1.8, 80-200mm Zoom f/4.5, and a 28mm f/2.8). This camera soon became my workhorse, and it never leaves my bag.
This family of cameras is bit of an enigma. I acquired one by accident. Now, I'm curious about the rest of the family.
The 110 film format was introduced by Kodak in 1972. Have you had the chance to shoot with this kind of film? Most us already know about the 35mm and 120 film format. But what about 110? Find out more after the break.
How my husband's idea for a project inspired a whole family. Beginning with one challenge: £30 to buy a film camera, one black and white film, and one colour film. The start of lomographic adventure!
