Released 1985 The T80 was Canon’s first fully autofocus camera, using some electrical contacts on the existing FD manual focus mount. It was not a commercial success but it did pave the way for the new EOS series of cameras.Read more "Canon T80"

Released 1949 The Duaflex is a pseudo-TLR. TLR because it has two lenses (one for viewing, one for taking) but pseudo because it isn’t a true TLR. It has fixed focus, no ground-glass viewing screen and behaves more like a box camera. This one was a gift from my colleague Paul. See all photos taken […]Read more "Kodak Duaflex"
Released 1925 I’ve long fancied a 6×12 good-quality panoramic camera. The best option seems to be a 6×12 roll film back for a large format camera (such as my Horseman 45HD) but these are very expensive. Even more expensive are most of the dedicated 6×12 cameras from the likes of Fuji, Horseman and Linhof. I managed […]Read more "Zeiss Ikon Icarette 500/15"

This Super Ikonta folds up to a size barely larger than […]Read more "Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta A 531"
Released 1979 I dearly love my Mamiya RB67 but sometimes it’s just a bit too big and heavy to lug around all day. I decided to buy this M645J for “travel” use. Its 6×4.5 format has most of the benefits of the 6×7 format, while the camera is significantly smaller and lighter. At a glance […]Read more "Mamiya M645J"

Released 2012 I purchased this mirrorless digital camera entirely to use with manual focus lenses. Canon FD lenses can’t be used on a Canon EOS DSLR without a corrective adapter which spoils the image quality. However due to the shorter focal flange length, FD (and other) lenses can be used on the EOS M with only […]Read more "Canon EOS M"
