Shutter Time with Sid and Mac photography podcast, Episode 118 »» Trophy Hunting with Your Holga Digital?

Mmmm …. Fresh Gear

We briefly cover more rumours coming from the Fuji world and the teaser coming straight from the Pentax camp themselves: a full frame body is expected 2016.

Holga 2.0?

You guessed it. Remember the ol’ 120 film Holga cameras many of us used to have or still do? They were cheap, somewhat fun to tinker with, garnered a loyal following and inspired a number of Holga Film Friday blogs. It turns out the love has never left, as there are well over two thousand backers kicking in their hard earned bucks to bring us the Holga Digital.  Check out the Kickstarter for yourself!

Trophy Hunting – Revisited

With the announcement of the new Holga, we remembered there was something even crazier out there – enter the prototype, the Camera Restricta. You guessed it – the idea behind this is to restrict photographers around the globe from taking those same trophy shots we all see and do ourselves. So it begged the question we’ve all asked in the past – should we continue to make images at the most popular locations? Please join us as we revisit this topic.
