Film’s Dead Jim


With apologies to Star Trek fans and my friend Jim Henry.  About 11 months ago, I told Darwin Wiggett that I wasn’t a big fan of the Holga, now I’m afraid I’ll have to eat my words.

I guess that I never saw good images from “Toy Cameras” before. Thanks to The Holga Blog for providing excellent information on the Holga Experience” and to for giving great service supplying my new camera. Sherri and I are headed to Lake Louise this Saturday to participate in Darwin Wiggett’sHolga Hustle” & Print Show. Check with Darwin if you are interested in attending, there might be a spot left.

Sherri likes the bright colors of the new Holga and it’s easy controls and wants to use this camera at the Holga Hustle.

1930 Kodak 50th Anniversary Brownie Box Camera

I’ll be trying out this 1930 Kodak 50th Anniversary Brownie Box camera. I recently acquired this oldie and can’t wait to run a roll of 120 film through it.

Ansco 120

I’ll also be using my old trusty Ansco and I’ve been dusting off my old Nikon film bodies. I’m going to try and leave my D300s at home and just take my little P6000 and iPhone, so it will be a mostly film weekend. Results to follow. Wish me luck!

In the best light…

  1. Hi John!

    I can’t wait to see the results. I have been wanting to get out and shoot with some cameras I have laying around here~ but lack of knowledge has stopped me. Also, can’t wait to see the results your wife gets with the Holga. I’ve been curious!!!

    Great post. Love visiting your blog. So much great information!!!
