Film Photography Podcast – Episode 75 – February 1, 2013
The internet radio show for people who love to shoot film! Mamiya C220, Petre FT EE, Vivitar 3D, Action Tracker, Darkroom Tips, Book of the Month, Instant-tastic Polaroid Camera Giveaway and Lots More!!! Roll Call – Michael, Mat, John, Dane and Mark!
above: The FPP Song! Written and performed by Jim Austin!
The book of the month comes from FPP super friend Jim “Jimages” Austin – both the FPP studio and Mat received a wonderful book in a bottle, The World of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the man whose name is synonymous with street photography. The book has both Mat and Mike in awe at the amazing body of work displayed. However it is an older book and HCB’s work is highly sought after. You may have to go to Ebay or find a really good used bookstore or maybe a camera fair. There are a few left for sale on Amazon. It’s worth your while to pick it up if you’re big into street photography. The book will make an excellent addition to the ever growing FPP Library.
Yes, the FPP is giving away three, count them, three Polaroid cameras this month in the Incredible Instant Giveaway. How do you enter, simple, sign up in our giveaways section. The third place winner will walk away with a Polaroid 600 OneStep CloseUp which will include a pack of Impossible PX680 Color Protection film, the second place winner will get a New-In-Box Polaroid Impulse Camera and a pack of PX680 Color Protection film, and the first place winner will get a wonderfully wide Polaroid Spectra Autofocus camera and PZ680 Color Protection film, the Spectra care of FPP Super friend Leslie from Image That!
Mark brings out the feature top of the line camera for the show, the frankly massive Mamyia C220. This fully featured professional Twin Lens Camera was first produced in 1968 and is the only TLR (other than the rest of the C-Line of TLRs) to feature interchangeable lenses. Mamyia put out seven prime lenses for the camera, including a 55, 65, 80, 105, 135, 180, and 250mm units. The camera also supported 120 and 220 film without major modifications; just flip the pressure plate around. Mark loves it and at a cost of $50.00 it’s a real steal! It’s big, it’s heavy, and it will be a conversation piece out on the street. Mark also got a prism finder for it with a full uncoupled light meter which works.
And that’s all from us for the camera portion, as we continue on into the music part featuring several local artists and FPP friend bands such as the Pink Delicates, and Smoove Sailors!
