Canon AF35M – Point&Shoot

Today we bring a photographic machine. The Canon AF35M was considered a heavy model of the Canon, with 400gr. However, if we think it has everything like autofocus, auto exposure, pop-up flash and motor film advance and rewind, it might not be that heavy. This point and shoot came out in 1979 and the canon…

The Last One

This is our last post this year. Just because we do not have time for more. In December, we decided that we had to take a short trip, even for our country. I (Sara) had mentioned several times that I had never seen snow. It isn’t something that happens in the city we live in….

Kodak P3200

(Portuguese version below) From the first contact I had with analogue photography, Kodak Tmax 3200 was perhaps the most mentioned name when the topic of conversation was the picture in low light. Historically it is quite important because at the time it was released it was the first high-speed film available on the market. Due…

Agfa APX 400 in Madrid

(Portuguese version below) The first thing I read about the APX was that it is a film that must be exposed in the shadows and that for more details it should be pulled. I set a precedent for using it again, because I didn’t pay much attention to these details at the time I used…

Bairro Lavapiés РFuji Industrial 400

When I returned to Madrid, I knew there was a neighborhood that would have to have a day of visit just for him. Lavapi√©s is a neighborhood of Madrid, considered one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods, making it the most exotic place in the capital. The tourist zone of Lavapi√©s has its medieval origin…

Medieval Celebrations – Part 2

Kodak TriX 400 is so far, my (Sara) favorite black and white film. You can do everything. It has a beautiful tone a compact structure and high resolution. The images are bold, crisp and the little grain they have for an ISO of 400 isn’t distracting. This rigid and severe appearance of the tones of…

Fuji Natura

This post is for a closer look on this peculiar camera film. So far, it’s the only negative / color photo roll with the highest ISO I know. ISO 1600. It is called Fuji Natura 1600 and is a film sold only in Japan. If we want to use it, we will have to order…

Kodak Gold 200 vs Fuji C200 with a classic twist

When we decided to buy these two films the initial idea would be to compare them. Two films with similar characteristics and monetarily accessible. The reason these two have left the box is related to an invitation to participate in a classic car race at the Lisbon racetrack. I took a Renault 4L without major…

Alc√°cer with Rollei RPX and Acros 100

We went to Alc√°cer with our father. He had some business to deal with and after all we decided to go for a walk. Alc√°cer do Sal is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Like Lisbon and Setubal, he supplied salt, salted fish, horses for export, and food for trading boats. Invaded by the…

Festivities with Cinestill

This post fits into an older one about the village festivities where we sometimes spend our holidays. Local Festivities with Ilford Delta 3200 While Goncalo used an Ilfrod Delta 3200 with our Praktica, I had this ISO 800 Cinestill on my Eos 300. I didn’t intend to photograph a theme, just like my brother. I…
