I cant remember but I think this was during the 48 hour film festival where teams have to write, film and edit a film in 48 hours.
Spotted this camera while I was out a couple of weeks ago.
I dont see this very often… I should bust my 4×5 camera out again… Never seem to have the time these days…
At the Wellington Zoo yesterday and couldn’t help slipping back into street shooting mode 🙂
When you go to an Event that is like the Dragon Boat Festival a couple of weeks ago with a Rolleiflex a lot of the time it isn’t worth photographing the actual event due to the Rollei not having much in the way of a telephoto ability… But that doesn’t mean you don’t get to take images or have fun 🙂
Caught these guys a couple of weeks ago filming a scene for a movie… This scene involved a bus fallen into a bomb crater… Guess it was mostly CG
Thought it was about time that I introduced you all to the two cameras responsible for most of the mess of images that I put up here. The one missing, because it was taking the images, is a Nikon D70s with a very trashed 18-70mm Lens.
The Rolleiflex is the latest addition to my camera collection and I have to say that at the moment its a bit of a favourite (Dont tell the F5). Although not in perfect condition, with some lens destruction caused by someone trying to dismantle the lens assembly, it still takes a very sharp image.
I’ve had the F5 for the last 8 or so years. I bought it second-hand in London just before the advent of well priced DSLRs and it has lived up to all that I have asked of it and some that no camera should go through. Its starting to look a little rough and I’m onto my second 50mm f1.8 but it is still an awesome piece of engineering as well as doubling as a weapon if required.
