The Yasuhara is a little known LTM rangefinder from Japan – Howard writes a nicely detailed review about the T981 over on Emulsive. An uncommon camera, that might not be perfect, though it’s not without charm

The (Kinda) Terrible Ten
Canny Cameras is back with another top 10 list, but this time with 10 not-so-fantastic cult cameras. Some are surprising, and some are not so surprising. Take a look at the list – how many have you owned?
The Yashica T series has garnered some serious cult status over the last few years as one of the most desirable compact 35mm film cameras – Kosmo Foto has put together a nicely comprehensive ‘Kosmopedia’ on the T4 & T5. If you aren’t up on your compact knowledge, why not give it a read?
Ever wondered if those Kodak Instamatics that fill charity shops have any use? Or if a 126 format camera can even be used? Theo from Photothinking details his use of a Kodak Instamatic 133 – gives the126 film format a use in this new digital age a decade after it was discontinued.
Fujifilm are at it again. If they aren’t cutting a substantial roster of their film, they’re increasing the price of what they still have – and to add insult to injury, they’re increasing the price on April 1st. Despite in the digital age of rising analogue use, a vast conglomerate such as Fujifilm feel the need to increase their RRP. Is this help sustain the making of film, or just grab more money?

Justin Borucki is a New York based tin type photographer – Emulsive shared a rather interesting post about Borucki’s portable setup.
