Pentax IQZoom EZY camera

5 Frames with a Pentax IQ Zoom EZY and Lomography 400 Color Film – By Dee Dee Yelverton

I found this Pentax IQ Zoom EZY camera while doing some spring cleaning recently. Fortunately, I had stored it without a battery, and it looked clean (almost like new), and waiting for me to take it out for a spin. I suspect I picked this up quite a while ago when these sort of point and shoot film cameras were as cheap as chips, to borrow one of my favorite expressions from friends “across the pond.” A recent check on the large auction site shows that you can still get one of these for relatively little, but more than my bag of chips price from a few years ago.

Nikon FE

A Few Frames with Nikon FE, Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/2.8 & expired Lomo 400 film – By Alex Vye

A Micro-Nikkor 55mm 1:2.8 lens sat unused in my basement, on a dusty ledge, in a plastic bag. It is the last thing that I have from my grandfather on my father’s side. He liked to take photographs of flowers, rhubarb, and small toys in his backyard, so a small macro lens made sense. I decided to take the lens out for a spin of the docklands.

5 Frames with a Yachica-Mat – by Phil Harrison

I have a personal interest in the Yashica-Mat. Having set off in 1972 to West Bromwich Photographic College with only a Zenith B and realising something better was required, I part-exed the Zenith at a camera shop in Wilmslow for a used Yashica-Mat. They were still in production in 1972. I think the shop was called Laughtons and I believe I was assisted in the purchase by my family. This camera did sterling work at college, then later when working at a hospital, for doctors and nurses weddings.

It’s funny how these things happen. A chance encounter with my old Olympus XA3, hidden in a drawer for about twenty years, prompted me to put fresh batteries in it, find a film, and take it on holiday. I hadn’t used a film camera for so long, my children (both in their twenties) looked at it in disbelief. Even more so when I told them that the film in it was black & white.
