Polaroid SLR 680 SE: the best instant camera EVER

February 4, 2019
It's been called the greatest instant camera ever made, the apex of the Polaroid folding line of cameras, and even the evil twin of the original SX-70 camera!
 
I am of course talking about the magnificent Polaroid SLR 680 camera. For me, this is the camera that started off my Polaroid obsession a few years ago, find out in this episode why I love this camera so much. 
 
"The magic of Polaroids is their uniqueness. Traditional photographs are by definition reprints from a negative. Polaroids are a one-of-a-kind painting, produced by light, which might be why artists were so drawn to it." Florian Kaps

Olympus LT-1: my new favourite pocket camera

January 18, 2019

You've heard of the Olympus XA and XA-2. You've heard of the Olympus MJU II or Stylus Epic. But have you heard of the 1994 Olympus LT-1? It was a premium, very stylish compact aimed at upmarket travellers. Kinda like a MJU I clad in leather! It's my new favourite pocket camera, find out why in episode 4!

In the show's longest episode to date (how do they keep getting longer?) I also give an update on my Emulsive Secret Santa present, I talk about the cameras I've been shooting with in January 2019, the podcasts I've been listening to, and I give a shout out to some lovely conversations I've had with people recently.
