This gallery presents images that I captured on film. The cameras used are Bronica SQ, Agfa Isolette I and Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera.  They are all 6x6 medium formats.

Bronica SQ-A is a SLR 6x6 medium format camera. It has interchangeable film backs. I had used this camera more or less exclusively until I purchased my very first DSLR Nikon D70 in 2004.

Agfa Isolette I (1951-54) is approx 50-60 years old, therefore, the quality of the lens has shortcomings in comparison to today's high resolution lenses.  However, this adds a certain rough, nostalgic and even painterly effects to images.  It has a coated f/4.5 Agnar lens, which is 80mm.

Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera (approx 20 years old) is fun to use as there is no viewfinder, therefore, composition is guess work.  It has a pinprick size aperture (f/128), hence the name, pinhole with no lens.  It has a manual shutter.  As a result images are very soft and rather dreamy (due to diffraction) but with plenty of depth of field. The focal length is 25mm, 13mm equivalent to 35mm format.

Rolleicord VA is a medium format (6×6) camera using 120 films. It is a twin lens reflex (TLR) camera. It has a Xenar 1:3.5 75mm as a taking lens and a 1:3.2 75mm as a viewing lens. This camera is version 2, which, according to camera-wiki.org, was in production from 1958 to 1961.  The Rolleicord is the sister camera to the iconic Rolleiflex and was designed and manufactured with enthusiasts in mind.

In time the list of cameras used for this gallery will grow, because 20 or 60 year old cameras will not go on forever. 

* In the caption area of each image, you will find  information on the carmera and film used and exposure details where available.
