My brother uses it now and it has never failed it’s been in service for about 30 years and its still going strong. You would be lucky if your digital camera lasted 3 years the amount that thing is used. A few years ago i purchased my own one, the md model in black. Its got scratches and dents but it still works perfectly, i have taken it everywhere and i tend to wrap it in a jumper in my holdall so i don’t have to take a camera bag with me when i go away. Its so compact and tough it really is amazing. Mine cost me £25 on ebay so they are not even expensive, and some of the lenses can be picked up dirt cheap as well. Do your self a favour get one!
These are part of the hugely popular (in the 70s and 80s) OM range, they were designed to be the most ergonomically designed compact SLR cameras at the time and to this day they probably still are. It can run film speeds of 25 to 1600 ASA. The light meter is very simple to use with just a simple plus and minus symbol and needle. I also like the way that the shutter speed is adjusted from the lens mount and the aperture from the end of the lens, its just a very user friendly SLR.
Growing up in a small town in the middle of California, Kayla Varley knew she wanted to see more of the world, and explore it through her photography. Ever since she was a child, photography was a creative escape to a whole different world. A world where moments are being captured forever.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!
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.
Among the many public events of last year's winter in my hometown Como (that I documented with my albums and with my articles), I think that the most important was the opening ceremony of the jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis. I photographed everything with my beloved Canon AV-1. Take a look!
In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.
I was really excited when I got to test the Lomo'Instant Wide recently. Nine packs of film and and one week later I can say: "This camera works really well and I am looking forward to my own Portobello Road Edition!"
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
