The first close focus Nikkor for the Nikon F was the 5.5cm f3.5 lens produced in 1961. It did not have an automatic diaphragm, meaning it did not automatically stop down the aperture when taking the photo. The lens I am reviewing is the Auto Micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5 introduced in 1963. This is an… Continue reading Auto Micro Nikkor 55mm f3.5 – A Macro Prime?
I haven’t done a review of my Hasselblad 500 C/M yet, but I want to use it and get to know it well before I do. The main thing I have done with it is still life. I just got the negatives back from the lab of a roll of Kodak Portra 800 I shot… Continue reading Catching the Light – Still Life with my Hasselblad
Like many people, I had been waiting for the Fujifilm X100V to come back in stock…anywhere for a while now. When we found out we were going to have a baby in 2021, I really wanted a camera that was compact, digital, and fast to take photos of our new baby.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I don’t shoot low ISO films very often. Most of my photos are indoors or from the car, so I usually need a high speed.

In 2019, Polaroid Week was one of the first things that initiated me into the film community. It’s when I made one of my first YouTube videos and wrote one of my first blog posts. I can still remember the fun I had, and the feeling of purpose after being really sick and isolated for… Continue reading Polaroid Week – Spring 2021

My first impressions of this camera will be featured in an article on 35mmc very soon, so I am only going to share some photos I took with it and give a brief story on what happened.… Continue reading Leica IIIF – I Barely Knew Ye
In doing my research for this review, I ran across quite a few statements calling this the best 35mm camera ever made. I was surprised by that because I have heard the same for many other cameras I have reviewed, but never with as much gushing as I saw for this one. I’m not sure… Continue reading The Nikon F2 – Best 35mm Ever?
When someone you love passes away and is suddenly no longer in your life, you’re left with remnants of their life. Remnants of who they once were.
