Polaroid SX-70: the most revolutionary, iconic camera of all time

May 31, 2019

In this twelfth episode of Matt Loves Cameras, I review a rolled gold classic: the Polaroid SX-70. Is this the most revolutionary, iconic camera of all time?

This episode covers the background of Edwin Land, a brief history of Polaroid Corporation, the development of instant cameras and film throughout the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s, why this camera and its film are so iconic, and a description of the images I shot for this episode. I love Polaroid photos!

Smallest 35mm camera ever? Balda-made Voigtlander Vito C

Smallest 35mm camera ever? Balda-made Voigtlander Vito C

May 3, 2019

In episode 10 of Matt Loves Cameras I review one of the SMALLEST 35mm cameras ever made! It's not the Rollei 35, it's not the Olympus XA or the Olympus MJU II / Stylus Epic, it's not even a Minox, though it's very closely related to a Minox! Enter the Voigtlander Vito C!

I love the images I've captured with this camera and will continue to use this lovely little camera. Marshall Dalmatian makes a most unwelcome podcast debut halfway through this episode.

Expired Film Day special: shooting expired colour transparency film

Expired Film Day special: shooting expired colour transparency film

April 19, 2019
Do you like shooting expired film? Do you have a big expired film stash? I would estimate about 25% of the film in my fridge is expired, including several packs of peel apart instant film FP100-C, lots of Instax Wide, some Impossible Project film and some old Kodak transparency film from the last 20-30 years.
 
In this episode of Matt Loves Cameras I talk about shooting expired colour transparency film for Expired Film Day 2019. In my Fujifilm Klasse S I shot 2003 Kodak Ektachrome 64T colour transparency film and in my Voigtlander Vito C plastic fantastic I shot 2011 Lomography Colour 200 transparency film. Check out the images on the show notes or on Instagram. I also give a shoutout to three film photography podcasts: Uncle Jonesy's, Grainy Dayz and Embrace the Grain.

Yodica Antares: my review of a colourful pre-exposed film

Yodica Antares: my review of a colourful pre-exposed film

March 10, 2019

Have you ever used a pre-exposed film? Did you love it? Hate it? Or would you never even consider it?

I've bought three rolls of pre-exposed film from three different brands. Here is the review of the Yodica Antares film, shot on an Olympus MJU II (Stylus Epic Infinity). Because if you're going to shoot a film that many photographers hate, why not shoot it on a camera many photographers hate?

Also a reminder about Expired Film Day coming up on 15-16-17 March 2019!
