Join me as I review the Olympus Pen-F and shoot the suburbs! I look after my daughter in the morning on weekends to give my wife a well earned break. To combat the boredom of spending time with a screaming toddler and to avoid rethinking my life decisions I picked up this camera and have been shooting it solidly since purchasing it.
The Ricoh GR is my favourite camera of all time and I'll tell you why.
The Contax TVS Digital is a high-end compact camera within the legendary T range and the only digital model of the group. Boasting a massive 1/1.8", 5 Megapixel CCD sensor this little titanium box was one of the last models pumped out of the Kyocera factories sporting the Contax badge. In 2002 I was just barely talking to girls and trying to figure out how to pass my Math classes, so this little Contax was WAAAAY off my radar when it was released.
The near weightless Ricoh R10, produced in collaboration with Elle Magazine in 2002 could be one of the last Ricoh point and shoot fun boxes created.
The little plastic fantastic Olympus OZ-10 or AF-10 Mini kinda looks like an overweight Mju, with a 35mm f4.5 lens rather than the well known 35mm f3.5. To be perfectly honest? It's kinda a piece of junk but at the same time it's also kinda heroic.
The 40mm M-Rokkor lens is a real hidden gem of true Leica pedigree, even if it wears a Minolta badge. It's sharp, it's moody and has a tiny focus throw enabling you to focus with a rangefinder very, very quickly. It's my favourite lens ever!
The Epson R-D1s is the second of the bizarre R-D1 series of cameras from Epson who teamed up with Seiko to produce a true gem and oddity of the camera world.
