Day #2793

Day #2793Title: Foth Derby II
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Another little gem from my camera collection, this is a half-frame 127-format folding camera, a Foth Derby II. They were made between 1934 and 1942. That makes it probably the oldest camera which I own, depending on its actual date of manufacture (my Kodak Bantam Special dates from around 1936). I’m currently running some film through it to see how it handles.

Day #2709Title: Little Red Prefect
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes:  I picked up this Halina Prefect the other day – it’s in a very unusual red/brown colour – normally they only come in black or light grey. I am hoping to put a film through it very soon.

Day #2601Title: I’m An Advocate
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I’m pleased to welcome this lovely Series 2 Ilford Advocate to my vintage camera collection, which arrived by post today. It’s a British classic, and is styled with a cream enamel finish, giving it a look unlike any other camera I’ve seen. I can’t wait to try it out for my Retro 365 project, I just need to wait for some half-decent weather.

Day #2595Title: Yashica 44LM
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Busy day, so resorted to a late night shot from the camera collection shelf. This is my little Yashica 44LM Twin Lens Reflex. I’m looking forward to using it this year in my Retro 365 project. Although it’s not yet had an outing in 2015, I enjoyed making some images with it around Wimpole Hall last December.
