Canon EOS1000F

13

The Canon EOS100F is an entry-level 35mm film SLR. This camera won't appeal to everyone, and may not conform to the Lomography 'rules' - except "#10 - break the rules"! I have fun with it, and that's the main thing :)

The great thing about it is that it uses all the lenses I have for my digital SLR.

It doesn’t have many features – you can change the exposure time & aperture. And not much else (unless of course I haven’t found them). One major annoyance is that the settings reset if you flip between modes. There’s one auto-focus point. And it feels a bit clunky. I’m not whining though – I’ve taken some of my favorite film photos with this camera.

The best feature of this camera is that it has a setting to take multiple exposures. Everyone knows that multiple-exposures are awesome.

With the recent launch of the Diana SLR Adapters, it would be silly not to get an SLR. These cameras can be found on the auction sites, and are very cheap now – everyone who previously used them are upgrading to digital – good news for Lomographers!

    I had a 1000F for a brief period of time. I did have a Nikon F70 that belong(s) to my dad, but I couldn't use the lenses from my 400D on that, so I decided to get a Canon SLR. Unfortunately, I had to return it due to the fact it had glue leaking from the shutter mechanism [a common problem with this model, so the people in the shop I got it from told me], which caused shooting problems. I was impressed with the few images that I did manage to get from it, though. Yours are very good, too!

    Flying the Canon Flag with the Canon EOS-1N

    Who do you think deserves the crown for the best 35mm SLR camera? Canon and Nikon will always be in a two-horse race to the top spot in the consumer to prosumer SLR/DSLR market, having developed reputations as two of the biggest go-to brands. Representing the Canon corner, I can safely say the Canon EOS-1N is by far the best SLR I have ever used.

    The Ten Golden Rules of Lomography on Typographic Posters

    Every lomographer is aware of the Ten Golden Rules, the very essence of our “Don't Think, Just Shoot” philosophy. This set of guidelines tells us to throw away our inhibitions as photogarphers and have fun while taking pictures. Many of us take these rules by heart, but maybe not all of us take them as seriously as our community member pedrosattin, who has made these rules the focus of his personal project.

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
