I had tried using the Fuji Sensia (100, 200 and 400) and I wanted something new this time.
About 3 or 4 months ago, I was just starting to dabble with using more than just “the cheapest film I could find”. I had tried using Sensia (100, 200 and 400) and I wanted something new. I was in the local film shop and I could see T64 printed on the end of a box behind the counter. I was intrigued by the look of this Fuji film, as it looked different to all the rest.
I wasn’t sure when to use this film as I’d never used anything with an ISO under 100 before. I waited for the perfect day…well what I thought was the perfect day. I loaded her into my Holga and packed out the free space with foam and went to the skate park with some friends.
A couple of days later I had the photos in my hands and was so excited by the results; even if a lot of the shots were a bit over exposed. I was so proud that they were my shots. They were so much better than I had ever imagined.
Since then I have used the Fuji T64 again, although each time I have cross processed it. I will eventually process it normally, but I’m too impatient to have to send it away. Its very fine grain aids it in producing high contrasted images with sharp detail. Many people I have talked to about this film recommend using it only in bright light, whether a sunny day or use a flash with it, however the second time I used this film was at dusk, and the shots were suddenly full with a richer purple/blue colour which I think is nice.
The Kodak Autographic is the first really old camera I bought. I didn’t really know how it worked and had no idea that this nearly century-old camera would kick off a passion for collecting, fixing, and shooting with vintage cameras.

We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
