I really wanted to own a compact and light camera, because as you may know Canon AV-1 it’s not the lightest camera and I always felt uncomfortable if I need to walk around with it for a whole day. I wanted to be able to bring a camera every day with me and just keep it in my pocket and not think about where I’m gonna put it all the time. After some research into what camera I should buy (I didn’t want something expensive as well), I’ve finally chosen Rollei 35B, and thanks to the good old Ebay, I had the camera after few days.
The size and weight of this camera, are just perfect, the only thing I was struggling in the beginning was the focus. This model doesn’t show you any form of focus confirmation in the viewfinder, so it took me some time and few films until I had really sharp photos. If you are looking for affordable, compact camera and you are good with math, I totally recommend Rollei 35B 🙂
The film I like to use the most with this camera is Fujifilm Xperia 400 and the photos you will see above are taken with that film. And since I love plants, you gonna see a lot of them too 😬
A little introduction to Analogue United
Since I’ve been shooting on film for more than two years now, with time I realised that I wanted to share my experiences with other people that love the analogue format. As much as I like instagram, I don’t think it’s the ideal platform to display your work and to communicate with people about it. That’s why I have decided to create Analogue United. I wanted to have my special space, where I can share other people’s work as well as mine, share the magic of film with more people and give them a platform in which they can collaborate with each other.
Analogue United presents the work of different people from all over the world. The goal is to share people’s work with the as many people as possible, exchange and share experience, create collaborations together, and share stories. The only and most important requirement to join us, is to shoot on film, that’s it. It doesn’t matter if you are a professional photographer, or doing it as a hobby, as long as you are a fan of analogue. I believe that everyone has a story to tell.
