    Classic Analogue

    Classic Analogue
    I spotted a gent today at an event and he was using purely analogue cameras but they were classics - Rolleiflex 3.5f model and the superb Leica M2.

    I did not have time to talk to him as after taking this photo the rain came down and we all scattered for cover but I do love this image of cameras I have also owned and used in my working career....................great to see them still being used by skilled individuals.

    I have always regretted that the rumored digital film replacement never actually materialized. I alway though it would have been fun to have a unit I could insert into my F100 to convert it to digital.

    You are not alone in that Brent but alas apart from some early attempts mainly with medium format it was not to be. The good news is the increase in availability of analogue film and the rumoured re-introduction of Kodachrome 64.

    For many years, I similarly lamented that I thought there ought to be a digital back available to convert my F2 to digital.

    The first commercially-available was a Nikon F3, equipped with a special back and supporting equipment from Kodak, first sold in 1991 as the Kodak DSC-100 at a cost of about $20,000. A separate shoulder-carried, briefcase-sized unit connected to the camera by a cable contained the batteries, power supply, a SCSI hard drive, and supporting electronics. Resolution was 1.3 megapixels.

    We have come a very long way since 1991 and today's modern digital camera is now a computer with a lens on it and has become a tool that anyone can use and produce "good results" regardless of skill set.
