The River Avon at Stratford-on-Avon

This is a picture of the River Avon in the town of Stratford-on-Avon, which I took quite a while ago when we were on holiday in Warwickshire. It is one of the pictures which I’ve not published before as an individual picture, but when I looked at it again today I decided I liked it enough to give it it’s own post. I remember I took it with a Minolta 505 Si Super 35mm autofocus camera and I think the […]

Ricoh RDC-7 Image capturing device

The Ricoh RDC-7 is a very early, 3 Megapixel digital camera produced by Ricoh with quite an interesting and novel design.

Pentax Z-20 35mm auto-focus slr review

This is a review of one of the best specified models in the Pentax Z series of auto-focus 35mm film cameras – the Pentax Z-20. This is one of the not so well know models in the Pentax range, but one that I think is a bit of a star once you get to know it. Pentax Z-20 Images My Pentax Z-20 Camera This Pentax Z-20 was bought to compliment my other Pentax Z series cameras, a Z-1 and Z-1p […]

Pentax MZ-30 35mm autofocus slr

The MZ series of autofocus SLR were the last series of 35mm film cameras which Pentax produced and the Pentax MZ-30 was one of the last cameras in that series with manufacturing starting in about 2000.

Pentax MZ-50 35mm autofocus slr

It’s a bit odd thinking of this camera as an addition to my Vintage Camera Collection, because in many ways this feels like writing a post about a modern DSLR. The Pentax MZ-50 has all the features of a modern slr – auto focus, multiple exposure modes, scene modes, camera body control for aperture and shutter speed etc but instead of recording to a digital sensor it records to film. The subject of this post is the Pentax MZ-50 – […]
