522 Cameras in 522 Weeks

This blog has been dormant for a couple of years, but the project is very much alive. 

At the end of 2019, I had completed 522 weeks of using a different film camera each week, without missing any. In 2020 I used a different camera each month, using in chronological order the various cameras that I owned for use rather than display, and covering 5 decades of photography as a hobby.

In 2021 I'm using a different film format each month, working my way up from the smallest to the largest, kicking of with th Minox format in January.

Further information will follow, in the meantime here is an image showing all 522 cameras that I used.

Still going strong!

Recently I've not had time to update this blog, but the project is still going strong, now in week 383. You can see the cameras and their photos on my Flickr stream:

I set the shutter speed to 1/15th sec in order to get enough exposure, but just about managed to keep the camera still enough.

Cherry Pickers
The camera was simple and intuitive to use, but I did find that the plastic strap was very stiff in the cold weather, and kept poking me in the eye!

The end of year seven!

25 cameras, 25 hats
Well, another year has gone by, this is a selection of some of the hat/camera combinations from year seven.
I'm pressing on with another year, with plenty of cameras still to try out.
Happy New Year!

Week 366 - Konica Auto S3

Konica Auto S3
The Auto S3 is a very compact 35mm rangefinder camera, I also have the S2, which is much larger. This one came from a charity shop for £5, I've loaded it with Agfa Vista film from Poundland.
