Day #2793

Day #2793Title: Foth Derby II
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Another little gem from my camera collection, this is a half-frame 127-format folding camera, a Foth Derby II. They were made between 1934 and 1942. That makes it probably the oldest camera which I own, depending on its actual date of manufacture (my Kodak Bantam Special dates from around 1936). I’m currently running some film through it to see how it handles.

Day #2703Title: Baby Blue
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:  I’ve been looking for one of these beauties for some time, and managed to find a great specimen on eBay a few days ago – Postie brought it to me this morning. I was very excited to unwrap it – can’t wait to put a roll of film through it. It’s a Yashica 44A 127-rollfilm format TLR, in the rare blue colour.

Day #2616Title: The Brick
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: This is the curious shape of my Argus C3 Colourmatic film camera, made in 1957. It’s terribly un-ergonomic and quite heavy – but it has a unique design which is very eye-catching. They were affectionately known as The Brick, for obvious reasons.

Day #2595Title: Yashica 44LM
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Busy day, so resorted to a late night shot from the camera collection shelf. This is my little Yashica 44LM Twin Lens Reflex. I’m looking forward to using it this year in my Retro 365 project. Although it’s not yet had an outing in 2015, I enjoyed making some images with it around Wimpole Hall last December.
