  • Revue 6×6 aka Seagull 4a

    I didn’t really plan on buying a new camera, but then the Revue 6×6 in seemingly good condition for a decent price was listed on eBay near me. So I contacted the seller, we agreed to meet so I can take a look at the camera and I was very positively surprised! The condition is […]

  • Portrait of me

    My wife took this portrait of me using the Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515 folding camera. Shot on Fomapan 100 rated as 200 (pushed one stop), developed in Caffenol for 15 minutes.

  • Meet the camera: Revue 400 SE

    The other day I recieved my new old camera: A Revue 400 SE! It’s a rangefinder camera with full aperture automation, which means I can set a shutter speed and ISO and the camera will chose the aperture. The viewfinder shows a small square in which two images are shows that need to be aligned […]

  • Shooting 120 film on a camera from the 1930s

    >inb4 the camera may be from the late 1930s or 1940s. I couldn’t figure this out, but the Zeiss Ikon Nettar was released in 1937 and it just sounds a lot better to say it’s a camera from the 1930s. So anyway, I bought a Zeiss Ikon Nettar for 10€ on eBay and loaded it […]

  • The day my camera skipped half a roll

    It’s a sunny cloudy day and I’ve decided to take a walk through the neighbourhood to get away from my computer screen and finish a roll of film. I already took 18 shots the day before, so with “only” 18 left I felt like I could quite easily finish the roll and develop it the […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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. […]

  • 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.

  • Kodak Gold 200 pushed to ISO 800

    Recently I saw that Safelight Berlin is pushing film free of charge. Pushing film means you shoot the film at a higher ISO rating that it is marketed for. Each doubling of the ISO is called a stop, so shooting Kodak Gold 200 at ISO 800 means I pushed the film by 2 stops. The […]
