My name is Greg, and I am a big fan of older cameras and film in particular.
I like shooting slide the best, but I shoot a fair bit of print and a bit of monochrome as well.
I am a collector of all sorts of “old junk” as it has been put to me, and my camera collection is around thirty at the moment and ranges from a Voigtlander Bessamatic at the older end to a couple of early EOS Canons at the newer end with the bulk of my collection being M42 stuff from Fujica, Praktica, Yashica etc. as well as a bunch of Contaflex stuff and a single example each of a Rollei TLR and a Polaroid…
I love using a proper manual focus camera, it gives a certain pleasure that an autofocus, auto exposure camera doesn’t…
I mostly shoot landscapes and cars and buses and the like, but I will take a photo of anything that catches my eye…
I have a pocket digital camera that goes everywhere with me on the basis that it is better to capture a photograph with a mediocre camera that is there than to miss it with a good camera…but when I go out to take photos I use film!
I suppose I could always go and find a Hapyucc and some bulk 16mm film…I’m nearly crazy enough to do it!
