I found this camera on my favorite flea market and was very surprised that Mamiya also produced 35mm cameras, because I just knew the big professional medium format cameras.
The Mamiya 135 AF is an excellent camera and doesn’t look like that, because there’s nothing on the camera to adjust. You can only turn the flash on and off, and change the ISO-setting from 25 to 400. Otherwise there is no possibility to change something. The camera does everything by itself with the autofocus and a CDS-meter.
For me the Mamiya 135 AF is an absolutely hip-shot camera. You don’t have to care for anything. And the results will always different and not like you thought of.
What I really like is that I can use my 10m cable release and tripod with it and that the photos are always very sharp (if the AF did his job successfully). But there also things I don’t like: I can’t make long exposure photos, because the shutter speed just goes up to 1/30s and the focus up to 1,1m. Well, but every camera got its little bugs, and that is what a Lomographer loves.
The Lomography Belair X 6-12 is more than just a medium format camera. It is lightweight, compact, and capable of shooting photos in three different sizes: 6x12, 6x9, and 6x6. Equipped with a high quality interchangeable lens system and and automatic exposure, it can give you beautiful shots in every roll. It can also take three different film formats: 120mm, 35mm, and instant. Read on to find out all about this fantastic camera.
Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
