Award-winning film shot through Hasselblad 500CM warns of photo obsession dangers

I think there may be more than a few of us who have been told that we spend too long looking through a viewfinder instead of experiencing life first hand. And there will be plenty of us who know that sometimes we dont get to experience an event because we are constantly looking for the best angle and thinking photography rather than feeling the moment as everyone else is. dpreview.com

Kodak ProImage 100 Film: Neutral Skin Tones, Sharp Detail, and Gorgeous Greens

Kodak released the Kodak ProImage 100 35mm film in 1997 but surprise, surprise it wasnt until around the middle of this year that it finally made the emulsion widely available in Europe.

Salvaging Forgotten Memories With The Rescued Film Project

Imagine that you were shooting with a film camera instead of a digital one; Whatare you going to do if you misplaced a roll of film by accident?

Guy Sies 3D Printed Hotshoe Covers Have Embossed Film Speeds on Them

One of the smaller frustrations anyone who has ever shot on film is forgetting the speed of the film theyve loaded inside their camera. This is especially true when you spend long intervals in using up just one roll of film and your camera doesnt have an ISO/ASA dial or that thing at the back where you can put part of the films box that indicates the speed. thephoblographer.com

So then the question becomes how to remember what film you've got in that camera?

The Fujifilm XT3 (or as they call it, the Fujifilm X-T3) is the company's latest evolution to their SLR style camera body designed to be a workhorse for many photographers. Despite a whole lot of great and absolutely fantastic things built into the camera, I personally am wondering what Fujifilm's goal is here with the idea of the X Trans sensor and Film Simulations. thephoblographer.com

Why Mastering at Least One Emulsion is a Worthwhile Exercise in Film Photography

It took me a little over seven years of shooting film to come across an unusual idea about the medium: mastering just one emulsion. I say it's unusual because part of film photographers' mission these days is to try as many films available as possible (especially the rare ones now), before they all get killed off (yes, I'm looking at you, Fujifilm). thephoblographer.com
