I was so fortunate to be in a position to try out some unusual film stocks at my Best Friends wedding. They had their professional photographer, my Husband was the Best Man and my Son was a Page Boy and so I was free to take a couple of cameras and a range of films …
I recently got back into bulk loading 135 format film and as usual, fell short on reloadable cassettes. Since I don’t get into Vancouver too often, I decided to look online and there I found them, but then remembered that the old XP1 cassettes from ILFORD were reloadable and quite good quality as I recall.
The Mamiya C330 is one of those cameras that ‘got away’ for me. TLRs are a bit of a love hate relationship. When I was starting to shoot medium format, I spent many nights trawling through the internet looking for information about what is out there, and more importantly what could I afford.
