First eleven of 55 cameras that were used and a short description of each and the image captured.
1 Mamiya 7ii with 65mm lens and Kodak Ektar 100 film 2013. Certainly one of my favourite cameras. Super quiet, great build and exceptionally sharp lenses and large 6×7 negative.
2 Mamiya 7ii with 43mm lens and Fuji Acros. As above with an exceptional wideangle lens and a combination I highly favoured even managing some portraits with it.
3 Mamiya RZ Pro II with 140mm lens and Kodak TMY 400. A versatile medium format SLR which I have had for many years and have used it for landscapes and portraits. Been a bit neglected the last few years.
4 Plaubel Makina 69W Proshift SW with a fixed 47mm lens and Fuji Acros. A 6×9 camera that has a wideangle lens with movements for architectural photography which I’ve never really used but it has produced some of my personal favourite landscapes.
5 Rollei SL66 with 40mm Distagon lens and Kodak Techpan 25. A fine 6×6 camera system with a tilting lens feature. Heavier than a Hasselblad but a kit I am fond of.
6 Rolleiflex 3,5F with fixed 75mm Xenotar lens and Kodak Ektar. A stunning twin lens reflex camera that is compact and an icon of film photography.
7 Rolleiflex T with 75mm Tessar lens and Kodak TMY400. Another great TLR in the colour grey. Haven’t used this camera very often.
8 Hasselblad 500CM with 80mm Planar lens and Fuji 160S. A legendary camera that is a joy to use.
9 Pentax Spotmatic with 28mm Takumar f3,5 and expired Ektachrome 200. A solid camera but one which I have hardly used. The Pentax cameras used in the project were all generous gifts from a colleague Dr Herman van Schalkwyk.
10 Diana F with 75mm lens and Kodak TMY400. From the 1960s and these toy cameras certainly are fun and challenging at the same time. My first introduction to this unfamiliar world and obtained in 2018.
11 Diana F+ with 75mm lens and Kodak Tri-X. A new toy camera in a red El Toro guise with a useful bulb lock clip. Light leaks can be creative if you’re lucky.
