2010 was not a great year for film photography, but among all the doom and gloom, one shining light stood proud like a lighthouse on the horizon: Lomography Society International.

When so many other camera manufacturers were discontinuing products or leaving the industry altogether, Lomography launched a brand new camera: the Sprocket Rocket!

I've shot three rolls of film through this plastic beauty... but is it any good? Keep li...

The Robot3 Action Camera is a cheap 35mm plastic toy camera produced circa 2007-2008. It was sold by Vastfame Camera, a Hong Kong export company that had ties to a factory in mainland China.  The camera has a cute robot face on the front of the camera around the three lenses.

    I never wanted to go to the Isle of Wight. I didn't have anything against the place per se, but we didn't have the time nor money to do the trip I had planned, so this is where we ended up for a family holiday last September during our last week overseas. In the end, I didn't mind going. Let's face it, it was the Isle of Wight or another week in Wolverhampton. What I found when I got there stunned me. Narrow country...

    The 1994 Canon Prima AS-1 (Sure Shot A1) is an excellent point and shoot camera featuring a sharp 32mm f3.5 Canon lens. It's fun to use, produces great images, and best of all, you can use it in the rain, in the ocean, in the pool, anywhere! Also in this episode there's an update on my 2020 goals and the plastic focus-free pano camera challenge!

    I almost dropped an Xpan. No, that's not a joke, it's the truth. In July 2019, podcaster, photographer, and Sunny 16 helper Matthew Joseph flew up to Brisbane for a few days and we met up for a photo walk. Matthew gave his Xpan to shoot with when the incident occurred. Was it my clumsiness that almost saw a legendary camera smash to the floor of the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art? Or was it Matthew's inability to put ...

    The Big Mini is a compact 35mm point and shoot camera launched in 1990 by Japan’s oldest camera company, Konica. Over the last 30 years, it’s become a cult classic point and shoot camera, thanks to its sharp 35mm f3.5 lens. Although its reputation has grown since then, time has not been kind to the Big Mini. Perhaps more than any other compact camera, it has a reputation for dying. So is the Big Mini still worth buying in 2020 and ...

    In late August 2019, I met a giant of film photography podcasting. I say giant, because not only is he an integral part of one of the world's favourite analogue photography podcasts, but also because he's actually very tall. I am of course talking about when I drove down from Shropshire to meet Graeme from the Sunny 16 podcast in rural Oxfordshire.

    We raced around small villages, we shot expired film on plastic point and sho...

    Mountains, lakes, cheese and chocolate. Fondue, trains, croissants and Swiss Army pocket knives. In August we spent an amazing five days and four nights in Switzerland. But what's the relationship between Switzerland and cheap Instax Wide film?

    Four days, three nights in steamy Hong Kong with a Mint InstantKon RF70 and a fistful of point and shoots. Markets, tram rides, protests, and too many rollercoasters... but how many cameras did I take on my overseas holiday? That is the big question.
