The Canon ELPH LT is an Advanced Photography System camera. Yes it really is a film camera even though ti doesn't look like it.
I have this great little camera I have used many years, It is a Canon Elph LT. A little point and shoot APS analog camera at its best. I have carried it around in my pocket so much all the corners are burnished down to black; like little photo corners. APS (Advanced Photographic Systems) is yet another brainy Idea from Kodak. Kodak paid a research company some very serious money to look into how and what is the size most people take negatives to print. They found out 97% of prints are made 4×6. So to make a very long and expensive story short; they concluded Jane and John Doe would spend more money to make more prints with smaller negatives. Wow! and the cameras are still very expensive. I guess it is like with drug companies “We must re coop the money we spent on research…”
I got mine at a yard sale for 50 cents some years ago. When I first started using The ELPH, people thought it was a digital camera. Sometimes after I took a shot, people would ask me to show them the photograph. There are lots of cool features built into this little pocket wonder. I like the little spring action door lens cover; it really keeps the pocket lent and coins from damaging the lens. It has a super sharp little 23mm Canon lens. The camera will shoot in three different frame feature on one roll: C, H, P, Prints come in 4×6″ (classical), 4×7″ (HDTV) and 4×12″ (panoramic). Classical means “crop the sides,” while panoramic means “crop the top and bottom.” The form-factor is recorded when you take the picture, but you can override your choice when reprinting. After the film has been shot and exposed it is all rolled back into the cassette. The shots from this camera are not for grand blow ups, but it is a pretty good little pocket point and shoot.
Venturing into an area when there's volcanic activity is a feat that can only be either courageous or foolish. One thing's for sure, though, it's the kind of experience that not many people share and—should one escape unscathed, like russellmcbride and his friend—a highly rewarding one at that.
My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.
It has been more than a year since we introduced the Lomo'Instant camera to the film photography world via Kickstarter. Since then, the world's most creative instant camera system has earned a permanent place on the camera collections (not to mention social media pages!) of many instant photography enthusiasts all over the world.
One of the best things about film photography, especially with cameras like the Holga and Lomography cameras, is getting creative with it! TCC Photo is hosting a competition to stoke the creativity out of film photographers everywhere and urge participants to think out of the box!

Vincent Chan doesn’t like constraints. He is passionate about natural and quiet environments. He launched Compose The Story, which provides photography and cinematography services, recently as a means for him and his colleagues to document the beauty of their surroundings. He brings the the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Lens into the country, and shares glimpses of its beauty in pictures.
Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre's invention made possible photography that is literally and figuratively one of a kind. For every shot fired, the photographer can only do one print. And though the marred by stains, a daguerreotype has the long-lived charm of a museum relic.
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!
