Every Summer: shooting film on the Isle of Wight

Every Summer: shooting film on the Isle of Wight

April 30, 2020
I never wanted to go to the Isle of Wight. I didn't have anything against the place per se, but we didn't have the time nor money to do the trip I had planned, so this is where we ended up for a family holiday last September during our last week overseas.
 
In the end, I didn't mind going. Let's face it, it was the Isle of Wight or another week in Wolverhampton. What I found when I got there stunned me. Narrow country lanes, picture postcard villages, deserted coastal paths, decrepit seaside piers, ancient castles, chairlifts, steam trains,  amusement arcades, beautiful gardens, cream teas: this was the England of yesteryear. I bloody loved it.
 
When I got back to Australia I had my film developed and scanned. When I saw the results, I knew this was the opportunity I had been waiting for, and I put together my first film photography zine Every Summer.
 
Find out all about the zine and the locations that inspired it in this episode of Matt Loves Cameras. You can buy a copy of Every Summer on my website https://mattlovescameras.com

Canon’s underwater marvel: the Prima AS-1 (Sure Shot A1)

Canon’s underwater marvel: the Prima AS-1 (Sure Shot A1)

April 12, 2020

The 1994 Canon Prima AS-1 (Sure Shot A1) is an excellent point and shoot camera featuring a sharp 32mm f3.5 Canon lens. It's fun to use, produces great images, and best of all, you can use it in the rain, in the ocean, in the pool, anywhere! Also in this episode there's an update on my 2020 goals and the plastic focus-free pano camera challenge!

I almost dropped an Xpan: meeting Matthew Joseph

I almost dropped an Xpan: meeting Matthew Joseph

February 28, 2020

I almost dropped an Xpan. No, that's not a joke, it's the truth. In July 2019, podcaster, photographer, and Sunny 16 helper Matthew Joseph flew up to Brisbane for a few days and we met up for a photo walk. Matthew gave his Xpan to shoot with when the incident occurred. Was it my clumsiness that almost saw a legendary camera smash to the floor of the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art? Or was it Matthew's inability to put a camera strap on properly? Keep listening and find out. 

Also keep listening for details of the Matt Loves Cameras plastic pano challenge!

Konica Big Mini: fun but fragile

Konica Big Mini: fun but fragile

February 10, 2020

The Big Mini is a compact 35mm point and shoot camera launched in 1990 by Japan’s oldest camera company, Konica. Over the last 30 years, it’s become a cult classic point and shoot camera, thanks to its sharp 35mm f3.5 lens. Although its reputation has grown since then, time has not been kind to the Big Mini. Perhaps more than any other compact camera, it has a reputation for dying. So is the Big Mini still worth buying in 2020 and beyond? Keep listening and find out.
