Today we talk about those great little cameras that may not hit the professional mark, but instead take on a more plastic approach. That’s right we’re talking consumer cameras this episode we also have a great new film stock to talk about, that’s right the first film out of Kosmo Foto, Mono 100!

Cameras in Today’s Show…

Nikon F90
Don’t let this camera fool you, the Nikon F90 is a solid piece of engineering often overshadowed by the Nikon F4, but for John and Alex, it is their camera of choice when they want an SLR, without having to carry around a massive camera.

Minolta X700
A classic Minolta camera and one that is well liked around the table. One of the first Minolta cameras to offer full program mode and with a large range of lenses to back it up is certainly a worthy addition to any Minolta collection.

Canon Elan II
Like the F90, the Elan II may be consumer grade but it certainly has the quality and features of a pro camera, and for Mike, it is his choice in solid cameras that don’t cry over if something happens.

Canon Rebel Ti
Don’t get this camera confused with a digital camera, it was 35mm first and for Donna a great way to crack into the 35mm film market as it’s pretty similar to the digital SLR of the same name.

Kosmo Foto Mono 100

CCR:FRB - Review 01 - Kosmo Foto Mono 100

If there’s one thing we’re seeing in 2018 is that film is back and new film stocks are starting to make it to market. But the one that has us rather excited is Kosmo Foto’s Mono 100. This fantastic B&W ASA-100 film looks beautiful in almost any developer you soup it in, but the one developer both Alex and Bill agree on is Blazinal 1:50 for 7.5 minutes or Kodak D-76 1:1. Plus who doesn’t like the amazing space-age packaging!
