    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 119 - Moving Pictures

    The winter is a good time to kick back and enjoy a good movie or TV show, so for our season 8 premiere, the gang is going to talk about our favourite shows that have some feature of photography or a photographer. As a group, our tastes are rather varied and encompasses both fiction, non-fiction and even a bit of anime. The movies and shows featured in today's episode include Blow Up, War Photographer, One Hour Photo, Life, The B-Side, and Area 88!

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 118 - Workhorses Pt. 2

    In our first episode, we discussed those cameras that can take any work we throw their way, and so to close off this season; we're bringing that topic back! What makes things interesting is that some of our choices have changed, and some familiar cameras are still on the table but in different people's hands! And there are no surprises in this list; we have cameras like Hasselblads, Mamiya, Olympus, Nikon, Canon, and Minolta are all in our choices. And when it comes to workhorses, these are cameras that will work in any condition and deliver solid image quality. You also need a camera that you can depend on the metering on the camera, especially if you're working with slide film! You need these cameras to get out of the way, to be not only an extension of your eye but also of your heart. Also, these cameras need to feel right, understanding a camera within your second nature without any real thought to operation. And we end the episode with an excellent discussion about when and where we shoot digital (and yes, we do shoot digital)!

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 117 - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 117 - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

    When it comes to Film Photography, most of the technology behind the medium has not changed that much since its inception. But some things are still struggling and need to rest in peace, or often in pieces. The gang sits around and hashes out formats and technologies that need to be put to bed, with items like Selenium Meters, 126 formats, APS, among the things. And they also talk about new advances in film photography and technology behind them like ReveniLabs Meters. Recycling old cameras and lenses from systems that aren't too popular to formulate new cameras again. ReveniLabs and, more specifically, the Press Pan, built from dead Nikon FEs and Mamiya Press lenses.

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 116 - The Feels When...

    When it comes to camera gear there are some that have the feels, and there are others that don't have the feels. So in this episode, the gang discusses the cameras that have amazing ergonomics that are a joy to use, others that we tolerate because the image quality is amazing! What cameras are on the table today, some are pretty obvious including the Nikon F4, Hasselblad V System, Olympus OM-2 and the Mamiya m645. And it cannot be an episode about ergonomics without including an Exakta.

    Classic Camera Revival - Episode 115 - Mystery Camera Challenge IV

    While we love shooting and talking about our own cameras, what happens when you're thrown for a loop you can get some interesting results! So with the gang all back together in person, we decided to take this favourite format and take on another mystery camera challenge! This time around we have John, Jess, Bill, and Alex all trading cameras around the table. John takes over Alex's favourite, the Minolta Maxxum 9. Jess getting to work with a beautiful Nikon FM from John. Alex lugging around a beast, the Nikkormat FTn from Bill. And it wouldn't be an MCC without Bill ending up with a red-window medium format. Jess passes along a Halina Prefect Senior to Bill, we've always joked about having a Halina on our show and now it has actually happened.

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.
