TTARTISAN HOT SHOE LIGHT METER REVIEW
TTArtisans released a new light meter, and we got to test one. So obviously we had to review it.
IN YOUR BAG: 1727 – JENS ASTRUP
An absolute banger of a bag shot. Jens managed to completely Fuji his bag out. And it was the most popular bag of the year, unsurprisingly. Some serious Fuji love here.
FILM NEWS: A NEW FILM CAMERA FROM PENTAX?
Huge news. Absolutely blindsiding everyone, Pentax made the announcement that they are researching the possibility of making a new film camera.
FOMAPAN 100 CLASSIC 35MM
A good old fashioned film review of a classic. Fomapan has been a staple for as long as anyone can remember, and is well worth a look.

The big film news of the year was from Cinestill, with the release of their 400D. And it is very impressive. We did a review and we are rather fond of it.
MS OPTICS SONNETAR 50MM 1.3 SLIM REVIEW
MS Optics Miyazaki san is always busy cooking something up. Despite being in his eighties he is still making some incredible lenses, and the Sonnetar was one of the highlights of 2022.
