    Coronet Twelve 20: - As English as Yorkshire Pud

    Right- ho, now pay attention. I am becoming increasingly aware of this new fangled digital photography malarkey running about the place with its full screen sensors and 12 point whatsit thingumy bobs, auto focus hocus pocus, image stabilizing face recognition mumbo jumbo nonsense. And I for one have had enough. So the boffins in the lab put their thinking caps on and over a hot cup of tea and pipe invented a camera so fiendishly simple that a dead dog could use, well maybe not that simple but you get the drift. So with out further ado and no more egging the custard, Mildred draw the blind, Jerry start the projector lets admire the Coronet Twelve 20 in all its glory.

    Kodak Brownie Target Six-20

    This vintage Brownie camera was produced by Eastman Kodak Company during 1940s. It’s a simple yet amazing camera uses film 620, which is now almost nowhere to find. I managed to kick start this antique by modifying the more common film 120 to fit it, read down and see how I did it :)

    In Love With an Antique Cutie: Voigtlander Vitomatic II

    I was so lucky to have gotten this famous branded Germany rangefinder camera in a boots market with a highly affordable price while I was travelling in the Canterbury. It brings excellent definition, high brilliance and maximum resolution of images during the whole trip in Switzerland. I am so delighted and in love with this boy!

    I work at a camera store near Milwaukee, WI and uncovered an old Kodak Retina on the back of a dusty shelf. As any Lomographer would do, I pulled it out, grabbed a roll of Fuji Superia 400 speed film and started snapping away.
