    Roly Poly Changeable ISO Slide Film has an awesome box No, the sub-editor for this piece hasn’t suffered some form of minor stroke [hint: there is no sub-editor], this is a serious piece about a serious film. You out there in the real world may know it better as Rollei

    My Pacific Image PF120 Pro (l) and Nikon Coolscan 5000ED (r) in happier days Dear readers, I have been living a lie. For the past little while, I’ve assured you that I was settled on film scanners. That I had made my (flat)bed and was relatively content sleeping in it:…

  4. Hi Redbubble, we need to talk

    2018-05-12 12:55:02 UTC
    Hi Redbubble, We need to talk. I have been a long-time user and advocate of Redbubble’s work. I’ve always been delighted with the quality and range of products as both a customer and artist.

    Sony HDR-FX1 (Sony Press Image from 2004) Anyone who’s bought a new camera over the past fifteen years can tell you how far digital photography has come. From a clunky 3.1 megapixel ‘compact’ ($2,000+ back in the day), to the unobtanium that was a 128mb SmartMedia card ($270; ‘never run…

    Every day in the 21st century when a new or re-engineered photographic film is announced is a good day. Today is one of those days with Kodak announcing the un-discontinuation of P3200 TMAX — the last great high-speed black and white film (put down your pitchforks, I’ve just never liked…

  9. London’s Brutal Reality

    2018-02-13 03:52:00 UTC
    I like big blocks and I cannot lie. Big blocks of raw concrete, that is. And as a fan of concrete architecture, there are few cities better for appreciating this polarising material than London. From grand cultural buildings to small-scale functional infrastructure, raw concrete altered London’s post-war cityscape more than…

    Billingham Hadley Pro BeginningFor some photographers, the camera bag is a vital piece of equipment.
