    Jake Bright the Polaroid Whisperer

    Jake Bright the Polaroid Whisperer

    In episode 46 I interview a man that goes by many names... Jake Threepwood, The Instant Camera Guy, and even... the Polaroid Whisperer!


    I am of course talking about Jake Bright, a very talented Polaroid SX-70 repairer based in Melbourne, Australia. We talk about pack film camera modifications, how Jake pivoted his business when pack film was discontinued, what can go wrong with SX-70s, are Instax cameras worth repairing, the new Polaroid Go format, and what other vintage items Jake restores. 


    Get in contact with Jake via his website or Facebook, and don't forget to tell him that Matt Loves Cameras sent you!

    I Dream Of Cameras Jumps the Shark

    I Dream Of Cameras Jumps the Shark

    Jeff Greenstein and Gabe Sachs from film photography podcast "I Dream Of Cameras" Jump the Shark and appear on Matt Loves Cameras! 


    Over 10 rounds we dream of cameras we've never owned in 10 different categories: 



    Point and shoot



    SLR



    TLR



    Rangefinder



    Toy camera



    Half frame



    Obscure format 



    Instant camera



    Specialty (pinhole / pano / stereo)



    Wild card camera 


    But wait! There's a twist to each round, who will come out on top? 


    Also keep listening for random questions about Australia, movies and vintage collectibles. I also put the guys through a gruelling classic American TV quiz, and an even more gruelling set of questions from my daughter Elodie!

    LomoChrome Purple review

    LomoChrome Purple review

    💜 LomoChrome Purple is a film that I have fallen in love with over the last year 💜


    If you’ve never tried it, I hope that this podcast and the sample images will inspire you to pick up a roll or five.


    In this review I give a brief historical overview of LomoChrome Purple and the film that inspired it, details on the colour shifts you can expect, the variable ISO nature of the film, I describe a dozen images I've shot with Purple taken on four different cameras, and lots more!  


    Inspired? Take part in my LomoChrome Purple competition! Entering is easy: shoot a roll of Purple between 1 February 2021 and 30 April 2021, then send me the best four images! The aim of the competition is to produce a film photography community zine by mid 2021.


    💜💜💜💜💜💜

Rokkorfan ,

Fun and educational podcast on analog cameras and film

I’m really enjoying listening to Matt’s relaxed and informative podcasts. Matt has a great voice and his enthusiasm for his subjects is infectious. I’ve listened to his podcasts on a range of topics from historical cameras to interesting and unusual film stocks, and found them all very enjoyable. Keep up the great work Matt!
