    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 82 - Compact Nation

    In our second part of our isolation podcasts, Alex discusses the Nikon FM and Nikon FE, two cameras that came out in the aftermath of the Olympus OM-System. The history behind these cameras, how they compare and their use in the field. Also, we welcome long time member of the Toronto Film Shooters Meetup and member of the Mississauga Leatherworkers Guild Mr Mark Rossi to discuss his own leatherworking business and the creation of Due North Leather. Due North, as you may know, is producing fine leather camera straps for a reasonable cost!

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 81 - Living in Stereo

    After our recent shelf queen episode (in which John spoke about his non-functioning Stereo Realist), John heard from listener Howard M. Sandler, who it turns out is quite the expert on Stereo Photography! We thought a deep dive into Stereo would be in order, and John was very happy to have Howard as a guest for this Stereo excursion. Below is an example of Howard's stereo work.
    Howard was also kind enough to provide a treasure trove of links on the topic (listed below), so dive in!
    Howard's stereo photos (mostly film, but not exclusively. Almost all presented in parallel viewing format)

    London Stereoscopic Co. They sell a good viewer for parallel images (the Owl viewer) and publish a gallery of good stereo pairs each month (Full disclosure: Howard has an image in the May 2020 gallery).

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 78 - Rest in Pieces

    Sometimes a camera breaks and we can't get it fixed, but we don't want to get rid of it either, so they just sit on our shelves looking pretty or in pieces. The gang also talks about getting your camera repaired.

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 77 - Sgt. Eastman and the Lonely Camera Band

    There are some terrible cameras out there, but sometimes a camera that has a huge following and produces some amazing images. And several of these cameras are owned or rather were owned by members of the team, but they just didn't fit our style. These cameras often sit on our shelves just not used anymore, they're part of the lonely camera band.

Great podcast

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.
