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.
I reached out to someone I connected with on Instagram @mikeyboards. We connected over our shared obsession for taking photos of strangers on the streets, how awkward it can be and how we approach it. He shares how he got started making photos on the streets of New York City with his dog, Baci.
We wanted to know how a modern, mid-range DSLR would stack up against a 1990s era film point and shoot at the same location, shooting the same things. So, we took both cameras to an abandoned former school and orphanage in Ballarat to see how they'd go! The results are surprising!
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.
Since beginning my switch to film in mid-2017, I've tried a handful of different film stocks from budget to pro in a variety of cameras. This short list are my favourites to shoot street and any other kind of photography!
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!
I recently received a little known camera from Japan, the Olympus OZ10 point and shoot. Continuing my obsession with point and shoot film cameras I picked this little plastic fantastic up for the $AUD equivalent of a Red Bull and a meat pie. It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s
