Well hello there film; I’ve missed you.

rail

On a whim last month I decided I would buy another film camera. I was wandering around Blue Moon Camera and they had a couple Nikon FE bodies, and one came with a 28mm f/2.8, so I bought it.

Panasonic Lumix LX-10 | Far more than just a Point and Shoot

Digital cameras are the new Brownie, and they have quickly nudged out film cameras … Read more

Firefox 3.5 support for color profiles has issues
