Aled & Sarah’s Wedding – Part One

The wedding of two friends of mine from a few months ago, took quite a few shots on Fuji Pro 160S using my Olympus OM1 and F.Zuiko 50mm 1:1.8 lens. There’ll be a few more of these over the next week or so. Enjoy.

Praktica MTL3

My sister’s boyfriend managed to get hold of this for me, I’m still not entirely sure it was a wise purchase on my hand but we’ll get on to that. Built like a tank, and not just due to it’s mechanic’s but the fact it literally weigh’s a ton, I mainly wanted to get my hand’s on this as I’ve never shot an East German camera before and have heard of how Praktica’s are generally OK if not great camera’s.

Berlin On Film – Part One

As some of you may know I visited Berlin about a month or so ago, I’ve already shown some of the image’s I took digitally while there but now I’ve had a couple of rolls of film developed from the trip as well. So over the next few week’s I’ll be sharing the image’s taken on Agfa Vista Plus 200 with my Olympus OM-1 and F.Zuiko 50mm lens.

Some More From Olympus Trip

Another few images from the first roll I ran through the Olympus Trip my girlfriend’s dad gave me. All taken on Agfa Vista Plus 200, you can see in the later one’s how 200 ISO cheap film and a point and shoot start to struggle with the fading light, and yes these are a little “touristy”.

Christmas On 35mm : Part 1

Thought I’d start a new mini series of photograph’s since the subject matter for it will pretty soon be too old to be relevant (Christmas was over 2 weeks ago already!). A selection of photograph’s taken over the Christmas period of family and friend’s, regular reader’s may notice the similarity between these and previous post’s from digital. All these however are taken on Fomapan Classic 100 ISO monochrome film and using my Olympus OM-1 with 50mm F.Zuiko Auto-S 1:1.8 lens, all at F1.8 and 1/30th sec. Enjoy.

Ricoh KR-5: Glamorgan Canal

Finally got around to using the Ricoh KR-5 I’ve had stowed away in a drawer for the best part of a year, and I’ve got to say I’m impressed with the results. This thing cost me £8 on ebay, the body feel’s quite light for an SLR of it’s time, there’s metal in it somewhere but it sure does look and feel mostly plastic. To be honest the reason’s for this are probably because it’s a very basic model, likely entry level, I’d suggest that as there are not many speed settings, the fastest being 1/500 and the slowest being 1/8th. It does have a self timer which works fine and a light-meter which doesn’t. The lens it came with is a Riconar 55mm 1:2.2, so not the fastest of 40-50 ish mm primes you tend to have as standard on camera’s of these type, and it feels very cheap, it practically weighs nothing and like the camera body is very plastic feeling. So perhaps that’s why I’m impressed, it’s cheap and cheerful but seems to do the job nicely if that’s what you’re looking for. Below is a selection of photo’s taken on a roll of Agfa Vista Plus 200, all are at F8 and 1/125th sec.
