In this episode, a discussion about two new film cameras under development: The Reflex and Ihagee Elbaflex. What do they mean for photography? And how do they differ from each other.
With most in the digital photography declaring film dead, maybe there is some life left in celluloid.
Two Kickstarter campaigns take a different approach to 35mm film photography, but both have the ultimate goal of renewing interest in the format.
The two cameras are the Reflex and the Ihagee Elbaflex, and both are manual-focus 35mm single-lens reflex cameras.
Even as many lens makers are shifting their efforts to more exotic lenses, along comes Zeiss with a 35mm lens.
In this day, a 35mm wide-angle lens is often met with a collective ho-hum. Does photography need another 35mm lens? Does Zeiss need another 35mm lens when it already has a Milvus f/2.0 in that focal length?
Back in the film days, Agfa Scala was popular among photographers.
What made Scala special? It was a black and white reversal film. Or simply put, a black and white slide film.
Then Agfa went through a number of financial problems before withdrawing from the market. It became a victim of the shift to digital photography, and Agfa Scala disappeared.

I always think that it’s good to shake up your photography now and then. Here are a few ideas.
WATCH A MOVIE
