Lomo Colorsplash

Igor usually shoots Leica M9 (already shown in this blog) but latelly he is trying film cameras, like my Rolleiflex, for which he bought some high ISO new films:

This week his parents gave him this beautifull Lomo Colorsplash 35mm camera.

And here some 35 mm films. Me and my friends, we keep buying!

Leica CL and Two Agfa Isolettes

This weekend we gathered some friends to talk and take pictures in Sao Paulo downtown. It rendered a few pictures which I will post along this week.

Leo took a Leica CL…

And an Agfa Isolette that has just arrived from Ebay.

Yamamoto likes Rolleiflex but that day he was using another Agfa Isolette.

Yes, there was two identical Agfa Isolettes.

Keep buying films

The best way to help film companies to keep making the films we love is we keep buying these films. My recent purchases are:

Kodak Tri-X 400. Beautifull grains. Once I use medium-format much more than 35mm – and medium-format lenses are slower than 35mm – this film is perfect for low-light shooting. Sometimes I push it to 800. These I bought during a recent trip to Buenos Aires where they are cheaper.

And these 35mm I bought on a sale on a local shop.

Fuji Acros 100. Fine grains and wonderfull grey tones. I use it for daylight shooting and sometimes for long exposure with a tripod because it has no reciprocity up to 30 minutes. They are easily found on local shops for a very affordable price.

Fuji Velvia 50. For daylight and only when I know I will find bright colors. Ken Rockwell wrote so much and so good about this film that I decided to try it. Have shoot some but didn´t develope´em yet.

Fuji Provia 400. For every situation. I love the colors it renders. Do you have a friend that thinks digital is the best and film sucks? Show him a medium-format chome in the lightbox. He may not quit digital but he will probably start shooting film.

Angel Foto

This week I went to São Paulo downtown where there are some photo shops for new and used equipment.

This is Angel Foto at Sete de Abril Gallery.
