Saturday morning walk in Zurich Oerlikon, a suburban industrial quarter of Zurich with its very own charming character, far off the inner city’s shiny places where you can literally get sick of all the opulence and shallowness.
A quick update on my Contax T2 experiences, this time with a closer look at how HP5+ performs in this neat little camera.
Lately you may have noticed an increasing number of posts in your Instagram, flickr, 500px and even Facebook that were tagged with #believeinfilm, #filmisnotdead or similar. What’s this all about? Are people really still using that old stuff? What drives people to use an old-fashioned technology if you have more comfortable modern alternatives?
I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences on why I like to shoot film in the digital age. Maybe this will inspire you to try it yourself.
Alright – “the ultimate Contax T2 write-up”? Not quite! Almost everything has been said about this camera already and I can just give you my opinion on it.
I know that the Contax T2 is a very sought-after camera for many analog enthusiasts so I’d like to share my personal thoughts on it which might or might not help you decide if this camera suits you or not. Of course there are many great articles around about this camera but maybe you’ll get an additional perspective from my first impressions here.
After exclusively using Leica Ms of all sorts for several years (an analog Leica MP was my only camera during the last 12 months, an M6 for many months before that and a Leica M Monochrom before that for several years) I wanted to try something different. Yet I am currently all analog and the new cam should be a sturdy, compact autofocus film-camera. After some internet research it looked like the Contax T2 was the perfect model for my needs.
