The Canon EOS 30/EF 40mm f/2.8 STM combo is probably my favourite camera for snapshots at the moment, I’ve used it quite a bit this summer…

Ondu 6×6 Pocket Pinhole, 25s, f167 – Kodak Gold 200 rated at ISO 100

Back in April I had a weekend break in a converted chapel in Leicester and spent the Sunday morning photographing the beautiful stained glass windows on Kodak Gold 200 in my ONDU 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera.

This is one of the final images of the morning, when sunlight was streaming in and projecting an image of the windows onto the floor…

Kodak Duaflex II – Kodak Gold 200

With a lot of time to spare at the moment I’ve been rummaging through folders of negatives, looking for nothing in particular but finding all sorts!

This shot was taken in the summer of 1998 on a Kodak Duaflex II, a simple box camera designed to look like a twin-lens reflex camera (TLR).

Fujifilm X-T10, Fujinon XF 18-55mm f2.8~4 R LM OIS at 43mm, 1/105s, f11, ISO 200

There were a number of Duaflex models with some having a focusing 72mm f/8 Kodar lens but this version has the fixed 75mm Kodet f/15 and was produced in the UK at some point between 1949 and 1955.

All versions took 620 roll film and although Kodak Gold 200 was certainly produced in 620 format I’ve a feeling that I re-spooled a roll of 120 (which is quite simple to do in a film changing bag) before taking the camera for an outing to Belper River Gardens.

I notice that Analogue Wonderland are stocking the Film Photography Project‘s range of 620 film… perhaps I should order a roll and give the Duaflex another outing?
