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.

Canon has updated its L series wide-angle lens and introduced a new type of glass (not resin like it uses in its inexpensive consumer lenses).

The fast f/1.4 35mm lens is the first to use Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR Optics), which Canon claims better chromatic aberration correction than existing lens technologies, such as extra-low dispersion glass.

Canon says it developed a new organic material in creating BR Optics without revealing what that organic material is.
