Thanks for posting this. As with graphic design, I came to (serious amateur) photography after everything had gone digital. While I’m fascinated by and appreciative of how different things were in the analog world of both photography & design, I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t have ventured into either one if they’d not gone digital—I lack the patience.

Still, impatience aside, there’s something especially satisfying about holding a physical end product you created in your hand, be it a business card, postcard, photograph, etc.

I have two digital cameras both Nikons. One is a compact and the other looks more like a 35 mm. I like both of them. I will admit I was trained on a Konica S2 Rangefinder by my dad. I took a while but I did learn how to use his camera. To this day I still remember how to use that old camera.

The problem with wanting a TLR is that the ones that are high quality (such as Rollei) and still in good shape fetch such a high price.

I had one of the middle-of-the Rollei TLRs many years ago. It wasn’t for me, but I still adored it. Eventually the cranking mechanism locked up for good and I sent away for literature on fixing it but ended up ruining it.

That’s one of the reasons I have a ‘cord rather than an older ‘flex: the mechanism is MUCH simpler and they almost never break. Still the same beautiful 75/3.5 Xenar glass though :D
