BW film photo

Our friend EmptySpaces took this lovely photo. Unlike me he likes working with film, this was taken on Fuji Neopan 400. And on a "Black Slim Devil", though I confess ignorance as to what that is. Aha, here we go. Surprisingly not a nickname. Looks kool, and I like the rubber grip and the super-wide lens, that's rare in affordable cameras, probably because they are tough to make with good corner-quality. Which you can't say the BSD has, but I like the look. It's out of stock, but seems to have been reincarnated as the Blue Ribbon.

Hi Eolake, A Black Slim Devil is one of these -

Thanks for visiting, EO. The Black Slim Devil is like a 35mm Holga - plastic lens, fixed 1/100 or so shutter. Lens is 22mm wide.

It's funny about the film, I got back into it a few years back and do enjoy working with it. One reason is I like using all the cameras - you can own a decent film camera for a song these days. And there's also a degree of randomness involved (especially with the plastic cameras).

I still shoot probably 90% digital, and really enjoy that, too, especially for color work. B&W film is fun because I can develop it myself.

It takes effort. You're too lazy to bother.

Alas, yeah.
