Spotted: Stuff Magazine Wrote a Nice Article about Analogue Cameras

1

In its latest issue, Stuff Magazine wrote a nice article about analogue photography called "Retro Chic" presenting the 70s and the changes made in the photography industry.

The UK edition of Stuff Magazine presented an article about the year 1973 and the changes made in the photography industry; moving from rangefinder cameras towards the SLRs.

A short brief about the launch of the Olympus Om-1, the camera that made the change and paved the way for SLRs inspiring today’s DSLRs.

A couple of reasons why to buy a Om-1 at that time: “Light, strong and capable of stunning results, the OM-1 shot Olympus to photo fame. It was packed with innovative features to reduce size and increase stability, making it a tech master that you can still appreciate today.”

“Thanks to their rugged build, OM-1s are often still mechanically sound and rated to 100.000 shutter actuations before starting to show the strain. The only electronic element on the cam is the lightmeter, so check it’s still working (it may just need a new battery)”.

Also, the Pen, Trip 35 and the XA with flash are featured in this article as the Top Four Olympus Champions.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)

    This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage.
