Camera

This week’s featured camera review puts the spotlight on a charming
medium format camera from the 1950s: the Bencini Koroll 24S. Lomographer berndtotto shares an amazing info about this analogue beauty: “The Bencini Koroll 24s uses ordinary 120 film, but exposes 24 pictures on it.” His review is short but sweet, so instead of spoiling you guys further, we urge you to head to his full review for more information on this beautiful vintage camera!

Let’s take a look at some of the beautiful photos our featured lomographer-author shared along with his review:

Film

As for our featured the film review this week, we have yet another one from adam_g2000, this time raving about Ilford HP5 Plus. “When I shoot black and white, there is one film I turn to more than any other. It’s a stalwart, bullet-proof film, reliable until the last.” In his full review he mentions how this film is “perfectly suited for plastic cameras” and can be both pulled and pushed with great results, and more, so go ahead and check it out! But first, here’s a preview of the photos from his review:
