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.

Olympus XA

I found this little camera in Tokyo. I was camera hunting for cameras, and I wasn't finding much things I was realistically interested in. Japan's camera market is amazing for vintage cameras, but they're all in superb condition. I tend to prefer the throw aways. Much like buying a fancy brand new, or perfect condition car; a perfectly pristine camera is typically wasted on me. I began collecting because I wanted to use the tool to make an image, not to sit on a shelf.

Intro: The Olympus XA


I decided to make a purchase in one of these shops into something, that I somewhat stumbled onto. I was looking at busted section of the store, and I was curious what camera this was, from the side it looked like a Minox camera because of the orange button. This camera has become one of my stand by cameras, so it may surface occasionally on this blog.


Anyways, onto the photos. Images Shot on some expired roll of Kodak Gold 200
