The Nuclear Option – My Experiences in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – By Charlie Thom

In March of this year, I travelled to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone with a friend on a photography trip. I wasn’t aware of the show that was released a couple of months later at the time, and I found it very educational, respectful, and entertaining when I watched it – I’d seriously recommend it if you’re interested in the story of Chernobyl.

5 Frames With a Canon Sure Shot Sleek – By Charlie Thom

The Canon Sure Shot Sleek is a 35mm point & shoot from 1996. It has a 32mm f/3.5 lens, which is surprisingly pretty sharp in the centre, and does the job for general shooting. It’s fully automatic, with the only controls being for flash and self-timer. I found the viewfinder is a tiny little thing, but it works well enough – even as someone who wears glasses. It has Canon’s S-AF system with a 3 point focus and metering selection. Metering is nice and accurate, and I’ve not had a single shot out of focus.
