Fuji Superia 200

5 frames with Fujica Half 1.9 – 33mm F1.9 Half Frame Camera

I bought this stunning Fujica Half 1.9 on ebay for a few pounds – described for spear or repair. Oh boy, I had hoped it would work! Unfortunately it didn’t, but it was easy to fix. Maybe it was easy for me because I have some hobbyist experience with fixing cameras but I’m not a professional specialist. Just a quick google search why the film advance lever is not moving and an hour later I had a working camera. I also changed the door light seals to make sure there will be no light leeks.

5 frames at Golden Hour in the Fall

For the last 10 years my photography has primarily been black & white film.  For me the colors of Spring and Summer are captured by the wonderful tones of Kodak Tri-X.  But sometime in Winter I start reacting against the world around me which is by that point very colorless.  And that is when I turn to the small bit of color I shoot in the year, almost all of it in the Fall.  And why not?

Argus C4

5 Frames with the Argus C4 in Michigan – by Sean Benham

The American Leica, no. A tough and durable rangefinder camera that has survived the decades with an awesome lens, yes. The 1950s made Argus C4 (aka C-Four as is written on the lens barrel) has a faster Cintar lens at f/2.8 than its predecessor C3 and goes to f/22; shutter speeds B, 1/10-1/300 with a leaf type shutter. They did make a more rare version of the C4 with a changeable lens, but most people know about the C44 that was standard with that option.
