Olympus Stylus + Kodak Gold 200

It seems like every New Years Resolution is to “Do __ More.”

Well, I hate making promises that I can’t keep, so I’m just putting film/ posts where my mouth is.

When you shoot film, there is the event of making the images, and then the time when you show the images/ edit/ scan etc. So I’m always in the past no matter when, I share it. Part of it is logistics of getting the film in the hands into the right people, then back to me, and editing and everything.

But, I am happy with some images that found their way back from my eye, to my hand, to the film lab, to me, and now to you.

Fujica DL-20

This camera was found by my nearby market while living in Busan. There plenty of markets in Busan, but most of them catered to a typical you market you'd think of, food, clothing, and souvenirs. There was one market (which is still there) off the Dongdaesin station in Busan. If you're ever In Busan, its worth a trip. This market was special because It actually had used/ old/ vintage items such as old north korean money, vinyl, and occasionally film cameras. 


These photos were all still shot in Busan. I am currently living in NY, but have a massive overflow of images from 2016, so I'll be visually transitioning out of Asia slowly. 
Everything here was shot on Kodak Gold 200.
If you're a shooting film in Korea, go to FotoMaru in Seoul. They were excellent at processing my film and mailing my negatives back to me. I wasn't able to scan at the quality I wanted to until I got home, but I sent them 50+ rolls of 120 and 35mm film with zero problems. They're possibly the best in Korea.

Canon AutoBoy Tele

This is one of those cameras that have virtually zero value. But for me, finding cameras to sell is only a small component of finding cameras. This model, the Autoboy Tele in Japan and the Canon Sure Shot Tele/ Top Twin in the US. I thought this was a cool little camera.


I began testing it out at a wedding, I found quickly that it operated okay, but the gears that switched from Telephoto to normal were old and cranky, so there would be a loud high pitched screech as when I switched between the two.

It also had a date stamp feature that seems pretty antiquated, but possibly conceptually useful as a tool when making images. The lens reminds me a lot of the cameras I would use when I was a kid.


I shot a lot of different cameras while living abroad. (I lived in South Korea for the year of 2016.) Korea had a good supply of interesting architecture, and cheap cameras.

I guess I've been on a Kodak kick lately. This was also shot on some Kodak Gold 200. I tend to buy film that is expired, and I don't freeze or store my film in any particular manner. Maybe I'll add a photo of my current film stock in the future.
