Could it just be the sum of all these things that makes my analogue heart pound whenever I see a beautiful creature like this one?!?
-Is it the feeling of an almost solid chunk of metal in my hands?
-Is it the looks of the huge and incredibly fast (at least for a rangefinder with non-changeable lens like this) lens at 1:1,4?
-Is it the amazing results delivered by the Yashinon-DX 1:1,4
- Is it the shutter speeds that goes from 1 – /1/500 sec.?
- Is it because that the ISO can be adjusted?
-Is it the classic stylish looks that some tasteful camera designer gave this massive beauty back in the sixties?
-Could it be the reliable CdS meter which still works as good as the day it was released on the market?
Or, could it just be the sum of all these things together that makes my analogue heart pound whenever I see a beautiful creature like this one?!?
I was looking for a decent rangefinder because I wanted to take some concert photos without disturbing anyone with the noise of my SLR’s mirror and something a bit more handy than my TLR.
And so I found this beauty with it’s very fast lens, at a very reasonable price, which made it even more suiting for my needs! After running the first roll af Tri-x through it, under a variety of different light-conditions, I now feel ready to go shoot some musicians!
Even with the little experience I’ve had with this camera, I have absolutely no worries recommending it to anyone who would get the opportunity of purchasing one…
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
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.

Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
It's June already and that can only mean one thing - SUNSHINE! We've got a great line up of workshops and events this month so take advantage of the glorious weather and join us for some analogue adventures.
New York City - the ideal place to go to if you're looking for unstoppable energy. There's plenty of exciting things going on, but you need to be lightning-fast if you want to seize the moment.

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.
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?
If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.
Located in the Zhejiang province, Hangzhou is known as one of the most beautiful cities in China. I went there following my aunt’s advice. She studied calligraphy in Hangzhou Arts University (杭州美术大学) and told me, "When I sat by the lake, I just understood Chinese painters. They painted what they see, not less."
