Hi Bellamy! I really want to thank you. Some time ago you helped me with info about the amazing Konica Instant Press. Since then I’ve been shooting with it along with my film/digital cameras. Last couple years have been all about weddings since I stop teaching Visual Arts.
I love small cameras, and they’ve been with me since my first Olympus OM1 and OM4 in college years. Now I carry a Sony A7 with a voigtlander close adapter and some little lenses. I took your advice and bought two of your top 10 lenses, the Zeiss ZM 35 f2 and the Voigtlander 50mm f 1.5. They go along with the exotic 35mm f 1.2. All amazing!
My other system, Alpha, coexists in film and digital thanks to a Minolta Alpha/Dynax/Maxxum 7 and Sony a99 (both quite compact in their class) and a full set of good lenses from Sigma and a nikkor 50mm f 1.2 specially adapted by David from Leitax. Normally I carry them on a Leather Brixton ONA bag or a Tenba DNA11.
I’ve been stocking my favorite film lately, FP-3000b, it’s a shame no one tries to replicate it. I have enough stock for one year maybe two, meanwhile i’m trying to adapt to FP color. Shooting with the Konica and FP-3000 is sheer pleasure and the results are unique. I love Portraits with this combination…. Once again thank you, keep up with your amazing work.
Unfortunately I had to take this photo with an old Olympus PEN. Hope it does the trick.
