I'm old, married with a son, and I have multiple sclerosis. If I were young, I'd be too nerdy to be cool, but I'm fine with that. I have a bachelor of fine arts degree from an art school which was devoured by SCAD in a hostile takeover and so no longer exists. I worked for many years variously as a graphic designer and a pre-press tech.
These are my cameras, currently:
- a Holga 120SF which I got in 2000. The battery fitting stuff has been ripped out as they caused me nothing but trouble.
- a Yashica Electro 35G rangefinder from 1968.
- a Superheadz Harikin Ultra Wide and Slim 35mm cheapie plastic toy camera.
- a Diana F+ with most of the bells and whistles, including all the lenses and the 35mm back.
- a Rolleicord V TLR, serial number dating it to approximately 1955, which I think I got in 2001. A real workhorse, but is currently on holiday pending a CLA.
- a LOMO Lubitel 166U TLR which probably dates from around the mid-1980's, and which I got in 2000.
- a LOMO Smena Symbol
- a FED 50, which despite being manufactured by FED, famous for its Leica rangefinder copies, is not a rangefinder but is in fact a compact viewfinder point-and-shoot with a selenium light meter
- a Lomography Supersampler.
- a Ricoh KR-5 Super 35mm SLR which I think dates from 1979, with a 50mm prime lens
- a Minolta SRT-101 SLR, 1969 vintage, with a 35-70 Rokkor-X zoom lens and a telephoto as well. This is on extended loan from my father-in-law.
- a Pentacon/Certo Exa 1c 35mm SLR with a Carl Zeiss Jena 2.8/50 tessar lens in the M42 mount
- a beLOMO Elikon 535 which is currently broken.
- a Pentacon Six TL medium format SLR (made in communist East Germany) and two Carl Zeiss Jena lenses.
