a N A L o G

a N A L o G


whenever i think of a film camera, i think of it in terms of being “analog”. so, i looked up the word analog to see if i was using the word incorrectly and in the strictess of terms, i don’t think i’m am.

typically, used to describe a clock or watch with moving parts was the description of analog in it’s most common usage. so, by that thought process, if you think about the camera in this image, you have to manually forward the film to the first frame when you load a new roll, you have to manually move the film to the next frame and you have to manually rewind the film. that’s moving parts, right ?

it’s okay if you disagree, i’ve already made my mind up (insert smile)



There’s only one rule in photography. Never develop colour film in chicken noodle soup.

That is a beauty. Old cameras were works of art.

This is excellent. And I have never really thought about analog before except in the context of radios

Not at all sterility it’s a pleasure to have a film in your hands and to move it . But sometimes the movie turns in the space because it is not well collided or sometimes it is difficult to take itforward and you wonder how are going to be photos…Beautiful image !

wow, what kind of camera is that? it’s a work of art in itself!!
when i used to shoot a lot of film, back in the late 70’s… i found it to be a lot of work, with fully manual cameras…. if i tried to shoot people i remember all the complaints of ‘HURRY UP!!’
and as it stands now, with my eyesight, manual focus would be practically impossible.
and the chicken soup advice haha could have used it back then!!! where was he when i needed him? lol

Love film photography, this is a great shot of the contina in its leather case.

I love this photo so much it’s the kind of photo I’d buy! I love the leather case for the camera.
You know I’d tend to agree with you about it being analog. The term really does fit.
Gosh, I like this photo.
