I’m really enjoying the dark room learning curve at the moment, but I still have plenty of cheapskate colour 35mm film from Poundland, which I take to a local independent commercial processor to run through his mini-lab. He presently charges me £2.50 for developing negs only – no printing.
I’ve used so many car boot sale cameras over ther past year, but it might surprise people, that if I had to choose just one to keep, it would by my lovely little Olympus XA2 compact zone focus camera, that I purchased for 50p at a car boot sale. It is such a fun camera – great for street fun – capturing odd moments or sights. Discreet, small, quiet. Close and open the clam shell lens cover and it defaults to a medium zone focus. It’s not such a bad camera for the countryside neither. Here are two photos that I’ve recently ‘snapped’ with the Olympus XA2!
