Cameras, cameras, gotta catch them all

So buying a film camera was the start of a slippery slope. I’m really enjoying the relative simplicity of it, and the hands on developing technique and the lack of pressure to photoshop it 7 ways to sunday to get it to look right.

But, I’m starting to crave more cameras. After some frustration while trying to take photos of Twilight’s Embrace and Sorrow’s Fall at the old Angel last Friday I’m really craving a film body with a much better AF system. And having seen some of the interesting metering decision the 300 makes I think I’d like  a better set of metering options. So I think I’m going to be on the lookout for a 30 or a 3 in the very near future.

And for something slightly more obscure I really have a hankering for a 120 film based pinhole of some sorts. I just see things that would good in a nice wide format and the slightly more contemplative mood appeals as well. So need to start thinking about whether I want something fancy, a holga or go the whole hog and build one from some nice offcuts of wood.

Though I’ve got to admit it was fun at the weekend to breakout the 30D at Kedleston hall. Though that might just have been using a better camera, which only makes me want a 3/30 that little bit more :).
