Many weeks ago, I bought a grab bag of photo gear from my dad. I did a little unbagging on Twitter, if you’re interested, and in short, wound up with a complete Olympus OM10 kit: OM10, with the manual adapter; 28mm G.Zuiko, 50mm F.Zuiko, 75-150 f/4 Zuiko; Olympus T20 flash, plus cables and brackets and […]
Up until about a week ago, I had a For Sale page with a bunch of cameras and whatnot on it. It was up for about two years, and in that time I think I sold two things off of it, the Cosina CX-2 and, most recently, my step-dad’s Ricoh 35 ZF. Everything else sat […]

I wasn’t particularly impressed, but I also wasn’t really doing it right and wasn’t convinced that a lowly phone could […]
The 2020 edition of Holga Week took place October 1-7. I shot two rolls during the week in my Holga 120N: some expired (and I believe water damaged) Portra 400VC, and a some Ilford FP4+. These are my picks from the 24 frames.
