  • Fomapan 400 developed in Caffenol

    I’m hooked. Developing film at home is so exciting. After my experiment of shooting Fomapan 400 @ ISO 200 didn’t work out well (maybe because I light leaked the film a bit 😅), this experiment was a full blown success. Beside a few images that were underexposed all photos turned out great, and I’m truly […]

  • Selfies with flowers

    Took some selfies today. Taken with my Fujifilm X30 and edited with Snapseed.

  • Update on the Konica Big Mini

    If you follow my Instagram you may already seen it: The Big Mini is malfunctioning and rewound two films into the canister after one shot. I took the camera apart to have a look at the inside, and as I first assumed the connection cable between the backside and the frontside is broken. Lucky for […]

  • Caffenol #2

    After getting a development tank I got going with another roll of Agfa APX, this time the 400 ISO variant. This time I also tried my new camera: The Konica Big Mini! I got it cheap off eBay because the seller thought it was broken – which it isn’t. More on that in another post. […]

  • Konica Big Mini

    When I first started looking for point and shoot cameras, the Konica Big Mini (201) was always on top of the list, alongside the Yashica T4 and Olympus mju. All of these cameras usually sell in the range of 100-200 euro these days in okay condition, and up to 300 in good condition. It’s a […]

  • Caffenol #1

    Yesterday I developed my own black and white film using Caffenol, a mix of instant coffee, washing soda, and Vitamin C. The film was damaged in the process because I didn’t use a development tank, but more on that later! I used the following formula: 40g instant coffee powder 56g washing soda 16g Vitamin C […]

  • First images with the Konica Autoreflex T4

    I just got back the negatives from the lab and scanned them at home, Images are great and I’m super happy with the results. Will definitely use this camera again.

  • Konica Autoreflex T4

    The other day I bought this „for parts“ Konica Autoreflex T4 off eBay, mainly because I wanted the 50mm f1.4 lens it came with. I paid 28€ + 4€ shipping and the lens looks super good so far, I’ll get out testing it as soon as I can. After some looking around the internet I […]

  • VEGAN

    THE KEBAP by Cemo is a Döner restaurant here in Wiesbaden and they have the best vegan Döner. Shot this frame while waiting for my order a few days ago and I really like the whole vibe of it. This photo was shot in black and white using my Fujifilm X30 and a custom in-camera […]
