Summer with a Leica

Posted on by Bellamy

Or ‘strolling the streets of Japan with a Leica’ Japan has been having a hell of a year, possibly the worst in living memory. The Tohoku earthquake, the ensuing tsunami and the meltdown of the Fukushima reactors taking a massive toll, not just physically and economically, but also mentally. Japanese people have shown massive strength […]

Daido Moriyama interview

Posted on by Bellamy

Does what it says on the tin. An interesting short interview with perhaps one of Japans most famous photographers Moriyama Daido on why he loves photography and what he sees. Pretty cool to see him using a Ricoh GR21, which is pretty much my dream compact camera. Cheers Japancamerahunter

Panoramic heaven with the TX-1

Posted on by Bellamy

The secret Hasselblad, for half the price! Here you go, something that you don’t get to see everyday. The quirky and interesting Fujifilm TX-1 panoramic film camera.

Although there had been other SLR cameras, none had the […]

A legend amongst camera lenses

Posted on by Bellamy

There are camera lenses, and then there is the NOCT: Yes, that is right, the Nikon Noct. The daddy of fixed SLR camera lenses. This is the ultra pretty, ultra heavy and ultra fast Nikon Noct 58mm f/1.2 Ais camera lens. This is what could be called a Bokeh master in the truest sense, having a […]

Finally. I got it! I got MY camera!

Yeah, lick the screen, you know you want to: I finally got it! Hello again, how are you all? I am particularly fine today, as I now have MY camera! You see, I show you a lot of cameras on this blog, and most of them are not mine, they are for sale or belong to […]
