Impossible Announced Round Frame Film

Today is the first day of Photokina and the photographic announcements are already rolling down the pipeline with news coming from all realms. The Impossible Project today has announced their latest special edition known as Round Frame.

As the title describes instead of the standard square frame of the SX70 and 600 type films these only display their image in a circular format.

There is good new however as the Instax Wide 300 offers an updated finish more in line with the recently released Instax 90…

Pdexposures Podcast Episode 38 – Winter is Coming

It may only be September but already the leaves are starting to fall and the nights are drawing in; in Nate’s mind, panic stations are being manned and he’s moving to red alert. He even changed the bulb.

So join us as 2/3rds of the team largely disregard “transitioning to black and white”, explore why winter is great when your darkroom is full of spiders, and insult the work of William Eggleston…

Plastic Imagery Episode 10- Land of misfit toys

Plastic Imagery Episode 10- Land of misfit toys

Some plastic cameras are unique, and can be left behind on the shelf because they do not look like a normal camera. These are the misfits. Often times produced for promotional purposes, these “cheap” cameras can still be used to produce some amazing results, or they can be good for a bit of fun when you are gathering with others.

The cameras we discussed in the episode are:

Pdexposures Podcast Episode 37 – A Photographic Library, PT 2

Exactly ten episodes ago, we did our first episode dedicated entirely to photobooks. Now, for episode 37, we bring you seven more titles that we think should be on your shelves, ranging from the well-known to the obscure. Will episode 47 be the glorious return to this subject? Only time will tell.

Simon also wants to show you one that you shouldn’t even go near because he feels it’s important to…

Camera review: The Canon 7

Camera review: The Canon 7

As I’m sure anyone who listens to the Pdexposures Podcast will know, I am somewhat infatuated with my Leica IIIf. The reasons are many – compact size, high-magnification rangefinder, the way it fits into my hand – but whenever there is talk of rangefinders on Twitter, I appear to be in the minority. Most people go straight to the Leica M range, many opt for the Voigtlander Bessa series and a few…

Red Light District 05: Dave Kirby

Red Light District 05: Dave Kirby

We have made it to the fifth edition of the Red Light District. In much the same vein as our first featured Darkroom, Dave has turned an outdoor shed into a darkroom. He even sees some of the same issues Nate does – though whether he uses a bucket to move water around was unfortunately not addressed.

What started off as a 8 x 6 shed was transformed into a fully functional darkroom, complete with…

Another one bites the dust; RIP, Kodak BW400CN.

Another one bites the dust; RIP, Kodak BW400CN.

Last week, Kodak posted a notice stating that BW400CN, their C41 processed black and white film, was being discontinued.

Regarding the decision, Kodak wrote that they “empathize with the Pro photographers and consumers who use and love this film, but given the significant minimum order quantity necessary to coat more product combined with the very small customer demand, it is a decision [they]…
