I held my film photowalk on Sunday.   We fought off the threats of rain and it was a beautiful but extremely hot day.     My friend Pieter took this very clever shot of me…

Here are a few of the vistors to my photowalk…  I have a feeling I am going to start collecting old film cameras.

My Leica M6J…and there were many other Leicas on hand on Sunday.

This reminded me of my friend Kathy as she was shooting the same camera at my San Francisco Photowalk.

I love this camera…  Not for any technical reasons but because this little guy is too cool.

We gave away some prizes (film)…   Taku won as the youngest photographer at 8 years old.

Well actually his little sister Nana was the youngest but we disqualified her for shooting digital…   She was shooting my Ricoh GR IV Digital.

Somehow I was ordered this little tiny beer….  I wanted the one in my left hand.

The rain that we missed came on Monday…

Storm over Tokyo

…but cleared up quickly.

I’ll be posting up my images in a week or two when they are back from the labs and processed.  I’ll also post up links to everyone’s images who was there so if you were please make sure to send me a link.

Thanks for stopping by today…

  1. I like the expression on your face as you look sadly at the tiny beer :)

  2. I love the shot Nana chan took of you looking down into the camera, it really gives a sense of a small child’s point of view!

  3. Such a fun outing!
    even soviet camera Зоркий=Zorki –
    here is a link to Wikipedia – http://bit.ly/k3Af8h

  4. Looks like it was a fun day. Wish I was able to join you all. Hopefully next time!

  5. Can you say where the last 2 photos were taken from?

  6. I can’t wait to see the photos from the film cameras. This makes me want to load up my film camera and take a walk.

  7. hi dave,the camera table looked very expensive,im drooling…..

  8. Hey Dave !!

    Lots of film gear but i’m a little disappointed no one brought the sexist camera out … the Nikon F4s :( …. i would have if i were in Tokyo !

    Anyway it was good to see you and Pieter … take care :)

  9. Hi Dave, I shoot film with a Zorki 3C. Interestingly this is the first Zorki 4 I’ve seen so far. Most prefer the 4K with the film advance lever instead of a dial. The story of the Zorki is interesting: When the Russians took Wetzlar at the end of WW2 they removed Leica production machines as reparations and re-assembled them on soviet territory. They produced the Mir and the Zorki cameras as a result which are modified Leica IIIf copies. The Contax copy Kiev is also a nice camera. I also see that the lens is a Leitz lens. The Russian lenses actually aren’t bad and sell quite cheaply still. I use a Jupiter-8 50mm f/2.0 with my Zorki and I’m happy with it. Very old-fashioned bokeh.

    Here one of my recent shots taken with the Zorki 3C: http://experimentsinexperience.wordpress.com/2012/08/05/down/
    And this is what the 3C looks like:

  10. Looks like SO MUCH FUN!!
    And what a fearless little one that Nana-chan is;)

  11. It was fun Kathy. Nana was fearless except when we were playing ‘Zombie Gaijin’…

  12. Thanks for the history lesson Verena. It’s a very cool camera.

  13. Charles…this is yet another reason you need to be living in Tokyo.

  14. Glad to see your Blog back…Thought something happened to you.

  15. Thank you sharing your photowalk. I looks everyone was having much fun, shooting analog photos. I could have joined the photowalk to share the same passion. I will try to make it next time.

    One member in your photowalk was holding an Adox film (I guess CHS 50). I love this film too :) Please keep sharing more photos once developed and scanned.

  16. Hey Dave,
    Seems you had a great photowalk :)
    I like your shoulder strap :)
