Classic Camera Revival – Episode 29 – Clan O’Canon

ccr-logo-leaf

So it seems that our hosts don’t shoot much in the way of Canon cameras, but we do have a decent selection not to mention the full lineup of the professional Canon F-1 cameras!

Cameras Featured on Today’s Episode

Canon F-1 – The F-1 was the direct answer to the Nikon F2. This professional system camera also introduced the famous Canon FD mount and remained fairly similar; there was a slight upgrade in 1976 with the Canon F-1n that made some minor changes both to the operation and cosmetics.

Canon EOS A-2 – The only EOS camera on the show the A-2 looks more like it was designed by Minolta then Canon. But don’t let that fool you, this is no entry level camera, the A-2 is a direct successor to the FD Mount A-1 series and aims more at the Advanced Amateur or Prosumer market.

Classic Camera Revival – Episode 28 – The K-Team

ccr-logo-leaf

Pentax, the name that is always linked with the student special K1000, however, Pentax had a broad range of fantastic cameras, and for this episode, the gang takes a look at their shelves to discover the hidden gems that they have from the Pentax line.

Cameras Featured on Today’s Episode

Pentax Spotmatic SP F – While not the original Pentax SLR, it certain is a big step forward with automatic lenses and TTL metering. A worthy camera for any manual shooter plue the Super-Takumar lenses have a fantastic repuation not to mention a plethora of M42 lenses will let this camera sing.

Pentax KX – While it doesn’t get the same level of press as the K1000, the KX is still a solid choice when it comes to K-Mount cameras and as Bill says it won’t let you down and won’t break the bank!

Pentax 645 – A strong workhorse camera and the main medium format kit in Alex’s bag. It’s almost a point-and-shoot medium format camera and being an underdog doesn’t command as high a price point as its cousins from Mamyia and Contax do. If you do get one, go for the original and be sure to add the 35mm wide angle lens to your kit and watch out that you get the 120 insert.

Pentax 67II – This camera will pump you up! The Pentax 67II is the final entry in a long line of 6×7 medium format cameras from Pentax. For James it is better suited for studio work as you do feel it after a long day of shooting it in the field.

New Film: Cinestill 800T in 120
Bill Smith recently had the chance to take a test run with the latest offering from Cinestill, their 800T film in 120. For those who don’t know Cinestill releases a line of film that is Kodak Vision3 motion picture film but during their rolling process removes the Remjet layer leaving a regular C-41 film. Now you can easily remove the Remjet layer in home processing or send it away to a couple of labs around the USA that do the ECN-2 process. You can even do a home ECN-2 process, but with Cinestill film, you don’t have to worry about all that.

Developers Featured on Today’s Episode…

Kodak D-23 – An old developer in the photographic world, but a new one from Alex. He discovered it after looking at developers that he hadn’t tried and could be easily made. He was pretty impressed with the first roll he pulled! You can pick up a kit from Photographer’s Formulary!

Fine Art Photo Supply FA-1027 – FA-1027 came across Alex’s Radar after hearing it mentioned on an episode of the Film Photography project and after hearing it described he wanted to give it a shot. This is a liquid developer that seems to give good results in most films developed in it. Good tone, fine grain! You can pick it up through the Photographer’s Formulary!

LegacyPro Eco Developer – The Eco developer is part of a line of photo chemistry from LegacyPro, the Eco Ascorbic Acid developer is a clone to Kodak Xtol, you can even use the Xtol times for film with this developer. It’s cheaper than it’s Kodak cousin and is actually more environmentally friendly! You can pick up a kit through Argentix.ca!

LegacyPro Mic-X – A recreation of Kodak Microdol-X a well loved developer that Kodak stopped producing. So the folks at LegacyPro took a chance and recreated the legendary developer and now sell it as Mic-X! You can pick up a kit through Argentix.ca!

That’s it for 2016, it’s been a wild year for film and there’s still a lot more for us to cover, so we’ll be getting back to recording in the new year to bring you a third season! That’s right, bigger shows, more guests, and of course lots of filmtastic fun! Maybe even another meet ‘n greet somewhere in this great province!
