Nikon F90X Film Camera Review

In this video I review of one of my favourite film cameras, the Nikon F90X with the 50mm f/1.4D lens. I shot a roll of expired Kodak Max 400 35mm film for this review. Since I have shot with this camera a lot and I already know what kind of pictures I can get out …

Leica M3 Videos

I recently got a Leica M3 rangefinder camera. I’ve been shooting with it the past month and getting to know the camera. I’ve loved nearly every moment I’ve had this camera in my hand. It’s fun to use and it just plain looks cool. Loading film into this camera is not like any other camera. …

Pentax Espio Mini

I picked up this beautiful little point & shoot film camera and walked around the Olympic Village in Vancouver to test it out. I shot a bunch of different type of photos and I think I got a good read on what the camera can do and how it performs. I was shooting Kodak Gold …

Superia Sunset

I was out shooting Fujifilm Superia X-tra 35mm film last week. I just caught the end of this sunset. I saw it happening as I was going out to run an errand and decided to stop by the park to shoot a couple photos. I was testing out an old film camera (Olympus Mju-1) at …

Life on The Edge

I took a little trip out to Fintry Provincial Park a couple days ago to shoot some photos and make a video. I was doing a little review of the Nikon Nikkor 14mm f/2.8 lens. I shot some photos in this abandoned house and then made my way up a mountain to a this waterfall. …

What does it take to scratch a lens?

Ever wonder just how much abuse a camera lens can take before scratches will start to show up? I use UV filters, mainly for protection and I was wondering this exact question so I decided to put a lens to the test. I tried “cleaning” the lens with a few different things. I shook the …

Pentax 6×7

I recently got my hands on a new medium format film Pentax 6×7 kit. Well new to me, as they stoped making this model of the camera in 1989. However, the kit I got is in such perfect condition you could easily mistake it for a brand new camera. I have been wanting one of …

Minolta 50mm 1.2 vs Pentax 55mm 1.8

I have been shooting with my Minolta 50mm f/1.2 for a long time now. I have always known the short comings of the lens and had accepted the trade offs (like lack of sharpness wide open) for the f/1.2 speed. I have also had my Pentax 55mm f/1.8 for a long time, but haven’t shot …

Back To Fujifilm

I decided life would be better with a little Fujifilm back in my life. I picked up this Fujifilm X-T2 for a smoke’n deal from Vistek (a Canadian camera store) and I am so happy I did. If you have been a long time reader of this blog you know I have some experience with …

My Favourite Camera

This has been my favourite camera now for many years! I have and have had technically “better” cameras, but for whatever reason, I still use this one more than any other. It is the Sony a7R original. It’s a 36 megapixel camera with 14.1 stops of dynamic range and for me that is just perfect. …

Minolta Maxxum 8000i

Some cameras come and go. In my case, a lot of cameras come and go! Some cameras however just hang around for years and years and never seem to find another owner. Like this beautiful old Minolta Maxxum 8000i. I’ve had this camera kicking around for ages! I haven’t used it in a super long …

Nikon Legend

Click photo to view in a larger size. So I have decided to take it back to the old school and start shooting some film again. When I was shooting film back in the day I was mostly shooting with a Canon Rebel, not exactly the greatest camera, but it was good for me at …
