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.
Konica Pearl II – The queen of gems
The Konica Pearl II is a 1950s folding 6x4.5 medium format film camera which is pocketable. I tried this gem out to see what it can do.
Nikkenflex – Twin focus
The Nikkenflex is a TLR which was available for a short time and is now hard to find. Two models are reviewed.
Mamiya Press Super 23 – Frustratingly Good
The Mamiya Press Super 23 is a medium format rangefinder camera designed for the 1960's press. It can be considered an ugly beauty.
Bolseyflex – Not much flex
The Bolseyflex is a medium format 6x6 pseudo-TLR. A very ornate simple camera which I tried out a couple of times.
Voigtländer Bessa I – Folding it big
The Voigtländer Bessa I is a folding medium format camera, which shoots 6x9 and 6x4.5. I have used it for shooting during coastal walks.
Holga 120N – The serious toy camera
The Holga 120N is iconic for producing unpredictable results. It has been a lot of fun shooting creatively with it.
One Hour, One Film
The One Hour Challenge is a method introduced by the Sunny 16 podcast to get creative juices flowing. See how I went with that challenge one evening in Auckland!
Walzflex – The slow dance
The Walzflex is a Japanese Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) from he 1950s. Aimed at the consumer, it was reviewed against modern emulsions.
Yashica 44A – Twin in small package
The Yashica 44A is a TLR in a small package producing much larger results.
