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.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    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.

    Lorenzo Antico's 'Final Shot' Presents Last Shots From 33 Films

    A movie's parting shot is a crucial element in the sense that it could either make or break the lasting impression that it would have on its audience. It could either wrap things up quite nicely and leave viewers satisfied, or it could do otherwise. For many, it's often the first thing that comes to mind long after the final credits have rolled out.

    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.
