New year, new film blogger camera review round-up. While the holidays seemed to be less a time for camera reviews and more one for reflections, time with family and friends, and looking ahead to the new year, we do have a few reviews from what I like to call the ‘film photography blogosphere’ that you might find intriguing!
This is a series we started on 35mmc to share more of the wonderful writing and unique perspectives from analogue camera-focused blogs in the film community. From well-known cameras to obscure one-offs, these bloggers have your camera interests covered, each with their own delightful twists and personal takes on their reviews. Enjoy!
Pentax P50 (P5)
“I enjoyed using this camera, it’s not the K1000 and it won’t work without batteries so it isn’t a perfect replacement. You can read more technical details about this late 80’s camera at this site.” – Peggy Marsh
Adox Adrette (1939)
“Always a sucked for prewar “nickel and leather” German cameras, when I saw this Adox Adrette with the Schneider 4.5cm f/2 Xenon lens for sale, in pretty good shape for a reasonable price, I had to pick it up.” – Mike Eckman
Royal 35-M (1957)
“One day while browsing one of the camera collector groups on Facebook, I saw a post by a guy named Colin Clarke who for some reason, had a fondness for a very specific type of camera, 35mm fixed lens rangefinders by the Royal Camera Company, or in Japanese, Daiou Shashin Kōgaku. The particular camera that Colin was a fan of was the Royal 35, which itself had a huge number of variations, sub-models, and name variants.” – Mike Eckman
Camera Review Blog No. 164 – Minolta Dynax 600si Classic
Read Alex’s post here.
“Despite being the most confusing generation of autofocus SLRs from Minolta, the 4th generation has much to offer, and the 600si Classic is one of those hidden gems of the series.” – Alex Luyckx
That’s all we have for this first round-up of 2024. Until next time, Happy New Year!
