medium format

Yes, film is back, that seems to be the next thing. Was talking with my friend C. Bay earlier this month, and Holga cameras came up in the discussion. I used to have one, but sold it when I thinned out my film equipment. It got me thinking about medium format as a next form of expression, and the slower pace of shooting film. Tried out a Kiev 88 soviet era medium format SLR, but didn’t like the heaviness of it and the weird quirkiness in how it operated.

I did more research and became fascinated with the foldout cameras from the 1950s. By process of elimination, mostly on a financial basis, I landed on the Super Fujica 6, which was made in about 1955, and was the last model of its kind made by Fuji. It came yesterday, and I really like the way it operates. Hoping to get out tomorrow after all the rain and give it a spin.

On another subject, I have revamped the website a bit, sort of removed the zine stuff, references and such. The website domain name will remain the same, but the site has a new title. Thanks for reading.

Cheers, and Happy New Year!

  1. My friend Nika just got a Holga. This reminded me that I need to check in and see how the Holga shooting is going. I noticed that the site seemed a little different. I loved opening the About section and seeing that great portrait.

    1. I had a holga for a bit, then went away from film and sold it, dumb. I pulled out some of those old negatives last evening and scanned some on this cool new Kodak 6×6 scanner that works through an app on your smartphone, pretty cool results.
