Olympus XA2 – La Kings/Dodgers Games on Lomography Earl Grey

Found another hiding roll of Lomography Earl Grey that I had shot last summer and never developed.  It was shot last summer, a few frames at a Kings Game, and the rest of the roll was shot at a Dodger’s Game.

Camera: Olympus XA2

Guest Post – Rolleiflex SL35 From SF to Big Sur

Guest blogger John Sargent for AwesomeCameras.com.  Today I am going to show you some images from SF & Big Sur shot with a  Rolleiflex Sl35 and Kodak Ektar Film.  If you have never shot with Carl Zeiss lenses, you need to get on it.  Kodak Ektar film is the world finest grain film and produces excellent negatives with high contrast & saturation.  The Rolleiflex SL35 with 50mm planar lens stops all the way down to f1.8, for dreamy depth of field. It can get as close as 1.5 feet, half the distance of typical 35mm lenses. The sharpness is unlike any other and functionality is smooth as butter.  If you want to check out some of my work, head to My Website.  And if you are in the market for a new camera or just want to browse, head to my Etsy Store.  Enjoy!

Video: AAA Battery Mod For Polaroid LandCameras

Tools & Materials:
Battery Holder: (Via Amazon) Or buy at your local Radio Shack for $1.99
AAA Batteries: (Via Amazon)
Wire Stripper/Cutter (Via Amazon)
Electrical Tape (Via Amazon)

This is a very crude conversion to AAA, just to how you how easy it actually is to convert your LandCamera to AAA batteries.  There are many ways to do this better(both functionally and aesthetically).  The whole process took me about 5 minutes and used minimal materials.  I Plan on doing a much more in depth “professional” looking version of  this mod in the future…
