Week 1:2017 – Playing Catch Up

Glad to be a part of the 52 rolls community. My name is Randy Reames and I live in Centennial, Colorado USA which is a suburb of Denver. My wife and I both enjoy film photography and collecting old film cameras. My camera addiction has been around for several years but I’ve managed to slow down the buying, selling & trading and concentrate more on improving my photography skills and moving more towards medium format for 2017.

For the last couple of years I’ve been on the search for the Holy Grail of point and shoot cameras and haven’t found it yet. Every once in a while I’ll find one in a thrift or antique store that’s way above average which makes the quest worth devoting some time to.

The pictures for week one are from three cameras, two point and shoot and a 120 folder:

Flag and Dismal Morning – Olympus Infinity Mini DLX – F3.5 35mm lens – a sweet little camera
Fujicolor Superia Xtra 400

Behind the Market night shot – Canon Sure Shot 70Zoom
Fujicolor Superia Xtra 400

Reflections – Rheinmetall Welta Weltax folding 6×6/6×4.5 – Zeiss Jena Tessar 3.5/75
Ilford Pan F Plus 50

For Week 2 I’ll post more catch up pictures from the first part of January.

  1. Welcome to the adventure! I’ve decided to return for a second year specifically to focus (no pun intended) on medium format so maybe we can trade tips.
