Film Find

Last Sunday, I met up with my good friend Paul for a camera show in Toronto. I had no clue what to expect at these types of shows. The place was packed with old film cameras and accessories and a ton of people. There was so much stuff to look at, and while there were a couple…

FP4 Party

The FP4 Party is a crazy phenomenon that has taken over social media!!! Well… not so much, but it’s quite fun. Basically, it’s a collective of film shooters using Ilford FP4+ 125 black and white film… which is super awesome by the way. Organized by emulsive.org and others, the premise is quite simple: “Shoot a roll…

I wouldn’t say this is an everyday film, and I’m not sure I’d get it again, unless there…

I have been wanting to get into instant film photography for a while now and was just about to purchase an…

Konica VX Super 200

Back in January, I picked up 16 rolls of expired film off eBay for something like $20. Expired film is still shootable, but with varying results which are usually unpredictable. I really like this film, (which is good, since I have 9 more rolls of it). I like the sharpness and the colour tones in…
