    Film People have asked, What was your first camera?

    My first was a Kodak Brownie that I received as a Christmas gift when I was about 11 years old. Several years later I purchased a Yashica 126. My first 35 was a Yashica Electro 35.

    Film Yashica Electro 35 with digiFilm

    It's a fixed focus - fixed aperture lens like on a toy camera. The price is a little too dear for a toy camera, especially since you can buy a LOMO or Helga for much less than that and use real film. Or, better yet, buy a YASHICA Electro-35 for around a hundred dollars and get a real...

    Film Old Dubrovnik

    A view of outside the city from atop the old city wall. Taken in 1975 with a Polaroid camera on their B&W film. City is Dubrovnik, in what is now Croatia. Friends who have visited since I did tell me this area is pretty built up now.

    Film My Second 'Real' Camera is Now My Latest Acquisition

    I too have an ME Super again. It's the same model camera I had some years ago when I traded for a Canon EOS 10D DSLR. I have a 50mm f1.8, a 35mm f1.8 (which I often use with an adapter on my Sony digital), and a 28-80 zoom that is a kit lens for a Pentax AF SLR and not very good. The two...

    Film In the woods

    A little comparison: this was shot outside St. Johns, Oregon (near Portland) with an Olympus Pen and Agfa Ultra 50 film in a heavily shaded area. 1/2 frame 35 was a viable format but quality-wise a bit lacking in comparison to other film formats, other than the minis.

    Just a few of the unforgettable sights from the Riviera drive to Monaco from Marseilles and Valberg, St. Tropez, & Toulon.

    Film Southern France

    Thanks. It does look like COSTCO, who scanned my slides, didn't properly scan this one as the left side diagonal of the image is a bit out of focus and exposure. I should have caught that but missed it entirely.

    Film Konica anyone?

    I had a mint T4 factory kit with body + 3 lenses and flash, bag, straps, everything. I bought it for $100 at a camera swap meet. When the local Konica rep saw it he arranged for me to sell it to Konica for inclusion in their museum. Made 4X on that deal. I used to work in a camera store...
