Canon 50mm f/1.8 EF

Roaming in South East England with a 50mm lens – by Mark Harrison

A few years ago I travelled to the South East of England to explore pastures new. My original idea was to take my Canon 33V with various lenses but knowing that my hands tend to freeze up in the cold, I chose to take the Canon f/1.8 50mm STM lens. Without an aperture ring or hyperfocal distance markings, I decided to use the camera on programme mode and – shock horror – spend the week using it as a giant ‘point and shoot’, letting the camera make all of the technical decisions, while I just composed the images and shot the scenes.

5 Frames with the Canon Rebel G and 50mm f/1.8 – by Wyatt Ryan

The Canon Rebel G is not a sought-after film camera, but it’s what I was gifted for a film photography class I accidentally took in college. It was my moms’, and is either well taken care of, or rarely used. It’s rather simple, with one dial to control shutter speed and aperture, a shutter button, a self-timer, different exposure modes ranging from A to M, an ISO mode to change the automatic reading of the film, exposure lock, and TTL center weighted metering.
