Going "Commando": My New Holga 120N
I'm not usually a toy camera kind of person. The couple that I have don't get much use, they're just not my style.  But I recently won third place in a photo contest, and my prize was this olive camouflage "Holgawood Collection" Holga 120N, called "Commando...

The Agfa Ansco D-6 Cadet
Agfa Ansco D-6 Cadet A while back, I found a guy on Craigslist that was selling several random cameras out of a box in the trunk of his car. I think he was working for a thrift store and probably would collect some of the cameras that he ran across, using t...

The Voigtländer Prominent:
I laughed a little to myself when I read the Craigslist ad, "We know how much it cost, but what is it worth?! Submit your offers and the highest bid will be accepted on April 5th!" The blurry, oddly angled photo taken in bad light betrayed little or no sens...

Camera Review: Pentax P30T
The Pentax P30T, attached to a lens from a Vivitar v4000 that suffered a sad fate. I didn't know much about the Pentax P30T when I saw it pop up on a Craigslist ad for $30. Of course, I looked it up before sending out the email, but there wasn't much to say...

Camera Review: Nikon FM2n
The Nikon FM2n entered the world as a minor update to the groundbreaking FM2 in 1984. With an all-mechanical shutter reaching unheard-of speeds of 1/4000s, the FM2 is a camera that is already unique enough to be on my "want" list. Early FM2n models saw only...

Camera Review: Rollei 35
Ah, the Rollei 35. People love it! They're going for about $150 on eBay right now, more than the price of many great SLR's. As for me, I'd have a hard time paying that much for one. Sure it has some great talking points, but never before has a camera made m...

Camera Review: Pentax K1000 (and Asahi SMC Pentax-M 50mm f/2)
The Pentax K1000 has a reputation for being a solid, no-frills SLR that will probably outlast your children. It's a pretty accurate reputation. I bought mine off of an ex-student that had taken a college photography class and (of course) moved right on to a...

Camera Review: Canonet QL17 GIII 35mm Rangefinder
It took a while, but I finally got around to running a few rolls through my Canonet QL17 GIII 35mm rangefinder camera (purchased for $50!).  I've already mentioned it in a couple of previous posts, including a short how-to on adjusting the rangefinder spot,...

Canonet QL17, QL19, and QL28 Vertical Rangefinder Adjustment
I haven't even done a post on my relatively new-to-me Canonet QL17 GIII yet, but I thought I'd put up a quick guide on adjusting the rangefinder overlay. I just finished doing it, and it was quite a bit easier than I expected it to be. I noticed the problem...

A Video Through the Eyes of a Mamiya C330
I adore my Mamiya C330, and so anything about that camera automatically click with me.  And when that thing also happens to be unusually awesome, well... all the better. This is a short video shot entirely through the waist-level finder of a Mamiya C330. Ho...
