Customer ReviewsSee All
The in depth reviews and passion for photography these folks share is compelling. The eposides where they have focused on a system or brand have really helped me understand some of the vintage cameras and their experiences have been extremely valuable.
A decent podcast!
Overall I found this podcast to be an easy listen, generally informative about film cameras and sort of keeps me excited about film and film cameras!!! I hope they keep it going for a while and get into some more in depth camera/film reviews.
