More cameras from Filmepalooza Summer Edition.
Nikon FTn or F2 (thanks to Jose Colares).
Canon EOS 5.
Canon Something (FD bayonet).
I wrote in this post how much I liked my Praktica MTL-3 and it is the best cost-benefit ratio for 35mm film photography.
It´s a great camera with a superb lens and I used it at lot untill I sale it to a friend. This photo of my girl was made with this camera.
Well… DÉJÀ VU! I just come home with this beautifull combo for less than $100: Praktica MTL-5B with Pentacon 50mm f/1.8, Takumar 200mm f/4 and Sicor 28mm f/2.8.
The camera is in great shape, all working. There was a film in the camera that I´m going to process and see what I got.
The dial at speed knob is missing. Not a big deal.
Pentacon brand still visible at bottom plate.
It came with original strap and case (which is very handy for me once I´m not very carefull with cameras), hood, UV filter, flash, power cord and bag.
Zenit E and Zenit 11 with custom made red leather (very beautiful!!).
Lomo LC-A, Canon EOS-Something and Nikon FM2.
Canon A1 and a nice T-shirt.
(I had a Canon A1 a few years ago that I bought from my uncle.
After he passed away I handed the camera to my cousin).
Last Sunday we had Filmepalooza III – Summer Edition.
This time there was far less people than before, but even so it was an exciting event where guys and girls could show their cameras and share experiences.
Two Pentax K1000.
This lady has been in this blog before when Lindsay sent me pictures of her shooting a Pentax K1000. Now I met her in person and could finally know her name: Kley. She had a Olympus Pen and a Nikon FM10.
When I showed my Rolleiflex she said “Oh, I miss mine!… I lost it when my ex-husband set my house on fire”… It was heartbreaking…
Maju is the girl that bought one of my Rolleiflexes. I finally met her in person. She didn´t bring the camera but she had a pinhole made out of 35mm film canisters.
Voigtländer Bessa R3M. I remember this camera from last Filmpealooza, but at that time it had a Jupiter 8 instead of a Nokton 40mm f/1.4 lens.
This couple approaches people in the street to invite for shooting sessions in their apartment (with film). Here is their business card with a picture.
I got this camera as a gift…
Ok, not quite but almost. One and a half year ago I took this camera to Mr. Peres to use for parts but this week he called me to say that “it was ready”. He completely overhauled the camera. I really didn´t expect that… So, it was a gift.
Meter is working.
This camera is great!!
A great youtube video showing why film lives. It starts quite good:
“In a world where everyone wants the most advanced technology, and images are dismissed as quickly as they are created, there is a GROWING subculture of photographers that have turned back to a more traditional method of image capture… FILM”
“Since 2009, film sales have STEADILY INCREASED“.
See that?… GROWING!… SALES INCREASED!!… Good, huh?
“Kodak´s Vision 3 technology has 14 stops of dynamic range”… WOW!!!
Here some flashes of the video but, please, be sure to watch the video because totally worth it.
Off course this last picture is a Kodak stand that was supposed to sell films but now sells batteries. But I hope soon it gets back to its original purpose.
Last week I went to Consigo just to check what´s going on (they have a good supply of films and sometimes they sell cheap films next to expire). Adalgisa were bulk loading Velvia 100 35mm.
They have a room for exhibition (cameras and photos).
And I was really surprized when I noticed that one of the photos were made by Salles.
