  • Olympus XA

    A review of the brilliant Olympus XA, a tiny rangefinder camera for 35mm film.

  • Captured: Chateau collapso

    I came upon this house falling in on itself on one of my first road trips, a 2006 tour of some twisty roads in southern Indiana. It stood on State Road 62 near Corydon. I went back over Labor Day weekend in 2007 and found it in even worse shape, with all of the parts…

  • Olympus XA2

    The Olympus XA2 is a wonderful zone-focus 35mm camera that slips into your back pocket. This is my review.

  • The 2012 Indiana State Fair on Fujicolor 200

    The 2012 Indiana State Fair ended yesterday. As a birthday present to myself I loaded my Olympus OM-1 with good old Fujicolor 200 and went to the fair to shoot people. (They all survived.) So in honor of this year’s fair, here are the best shots I got. This is my favorite shot of the…

  • Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80

    Pity the poor Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80. Did it ever really have a chance? It was introduced in 1999, just a few years before everybody would start switching to digital. That’s not to say that this affected sales. Olympus sold these by the bajillions. But every one you find seems to be in like-new…

  • Minolta SR-T 101

    I love finding a good deal on a classic mechanical SLR. Such was the case with this Minolta SR-T 101. Produced from 1966 to 1975, it was among the first SLRs to offer full-aperture through-the-lens light metering, in which the camera compensates for the set aperture as it measures light. We take this for granted…

  • Kodak Retina IIa

    A review of the exceptional Kodak Retina IIa, a viewfinder camera for 35mm film.

  • Pentax KM

    The Pentax KM is in almost every way the same camera as the Pentax K1000. You see, the KM came first, in 1975. Then in 1976 Pentax removed the KM’s depth-of-field preview button and self timer, called it the K1000, and launched one of the most iconic SLRs of all time. So if you go…

  • Yashica Electro 35 GSN

    A review of the Yashica Electro 35 GSN, a crackerjack 35mm rangefinder camera.

  • Pentax K1000

    A review of Pentax’s seminal film camera, a 35mm SLR called the K1000.

  • You win some and you lose some when you shoot with old cameras

    I’ve had a lot of fun shooting my new old cameras this year, but I also got out a couple old cameras I’ve had for a while and loaded some film into them, too. When I first wrote about my Kodak Tourist several years ago, I said I’d probably never run film through it because its…

  • Pentax ME

    A review of the Pentax ME, a 35mm SLR and the camera I use most by far.
