Three Cameras of 2022 for 2023
Voigtlander Superb, Mamiya 7 and Nikon Coolpix 995 are a list of three cameras I have used in 2022 which are destined for more use in 2023.
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX07 – Pocket digicam
The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX07 is an ultra compact digital camera, so fits into the current popular rage. I took it out of retirement for a review.
Pentax Espio 80V – Handy little companion
The Pentax Espio 80V is a small 35mm point and shoot compact camera. Billed as a "use everywhere" camera, I tried doing exactly that.
Canon Elph 2 – Tiny advancements
The Canon Elph 2 is a tiny APS compact camera. Designed to be stylish and advanced, I enjoyed using these strengths to see if it produces big results.
Nikon RD2 (One.Touch 100) – Auto in 80s
The Nikon RD2 (One.Touch 100) is a auto-everything compact camera from the 1980s. It is a handy little carry everywhere camera I carried with me for a while.

As it is a Soviet made camera, it continues the theme of Red October this month. The styling is colourful and playful. The camera does come in different colours to give the impression of fun. It is also the kind of camera that is ideal for not attracting…
Nikon Lite.Touch 140 Zoom – A little bit of luxury
Everyone loves a little bit of luxury. The finer things in life. Not that surprising we then have a camera with gold trimmings like the Nikon Lite.Touch 140 Zoom ED AF. A camera that gives the feeling you are using something with leather seats and a top class gold finish. That is if you ignore the fact the camera body is all plastic, lightweight and all electronic. There is a real surge in the world of compact film cameras at the moment, with some models commanding extraordinary prices. This is especially true on some models in demand with either known sharp prime lenses (e.g. Olympus mju) or even some zoom…
