Hasselblad 500 C/M - The Hasselblad 500 C/M is a beautiful yet simple classic camera produced from 1970 through 1994. It is completely mechanical (no battery or light meter) which allows it to be quite robust and reliable. I typically use mine with an A12 film back that shoots 12 square photos (roughly 6cm by 6cm) on a roll of 120 film. The most common lens used with it is an 80mm f/2.8 made by Carl Zeiss that gives a slightly wider field of view than a 50mm lens does on a 35mm camera. Using…

Yashica Electro 35 CC - This is the perfect film camera to carry everywhere with you. It has a very sharp 35mm f/1.8 lens, aperture priority mode (auto exposure), manual rangefinder focusing and is quite compact. It was produced from about 1970 to 1975 and although not common, can easily be found on ebay. This is one of the first rangefinder cameras I picked up and the one that really got me excited about the accuracy manual focusing provides. When loaded with 1600iso film (or 400iso film…

Contax G2 - If you want an autofocus film camera with amazing glass you can take anywhere with you, this is it. Produced from 1996 to 2005 as a rich man’s travel camera, this is the world’s most advanced rangefinder camera. It was designed to be used by anyone, simply point and click. While you can get several different lenses for it, the 45mm f/2 is really all you need (well, maybe a 28mm f/2.8 for those wider shots).

Canon A2 & 50mm f/1.8 - If you want a film camera with autofocus on a budget this is the camera and lens to get. The camera was introduced in 1992 and was one of Canon’s first EOS bodies with a great autofocus system. Pair this camera with Canon’s 50mm f/1.8 lens and you have an amazing package. It focuses well in low light, can shoot wide open in sunlight (the shutter goes to 1/8000s), and can crank off 5 frames per second. While an EOS 1V is a better camera, and a 50mm f/1.2 lens is a…

Bell+Howell Focus Free - I get quite a few questions about what cameras I use so I thought I would start putting together a short description of each. With all of the hype for lo-fi cameras like the Holga going on, I went on a search for a cheap 35mm easy to use camera and found this one for $8 on ebay. It has a fixed shutter speed of around 1/100 of a second and an f-stop of f/11.  This is perfect for exposing 100iso film in the shade and overexposes it by 2 stops in the direct sun…
