Hong Kong with the RF70 and a fistful of point and shoots

October 8, 2019

Four days, three nights in steamy Hong Kong with a Mint InstantKon RF70 and a fistful of point and shoots. Markets, tram rides, protests, and too many rollercoasters... but how many cameras did I take on my overseas holiday? That is the big question.

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.
