This was going to be Saturday’s post, but because I delayed my Ride Across Indiana I’m moving it to today. Wednesday through Saturday I’ll post about the trip.
I thought it would be fun to link you to some of my oldest camera reviews, from 2008-2010. I’ve been considering making a book out of my camera reviews. Is this something that would interest you? Let me know in the comments.
Here now, the early reviews:
📷 Kodak’s Retina line were fine cameras. I’d seen other photo bloggers get good results with theirs, so I found a Retina Ia for a good price and put it through its paces. Read Kodak Retina Ia
📷 When I started reviewing cameras, I thought I’d focus on folders and rangefinders. The first rangefinder I reviewed was the Minolta Hi-Matic 7, and it’s a great camera. Read Minolta Hi-Matic 7
📷 I bought a bottom-of-the-line Kodak Tourist, a folding camera for 620 film, and hated every minute of using it. Read Kodak Tourist
📷 In contrast, the folding Voigtländer Bessa I found was a delight, even though it wasn’t in perfect working condition. Read Voigtländer Bessa
📷 My Aunt Maxine gave me her Minolta X-700 — what a gift! Unfortunately, I got just two rolls out of it before it suffered from the dreaded Locked Winder Problem. Read Minolta X-700
📷 I’d been curious about Canonets for a long time, and the first one I found at a price I was willing to pay was the Canonet 28. Read Canon Canonet 28
