This is one of our favorite ways to shoot 400 speed black and white film.It is probably one of the most popular ways of pushing film as well. This works best with Ilford HP5 and Kodak Tri-X but basically with any 400 speed black and white film. Above are a few samples of 400 ISO film being pushed to 1600. The idea behind pushing is to be able to shoot at a 1600 ISO but without having to use 1600 speed film. Many people use this when shooting manual focus street photography, so that one can zone focus, using smaller...

I tried the camera during a trip in Paris, and since is Paris (for me the city has to be shoot in bw) I used a black and white film, a Kodak Tri-X 400. Its 38mm f/2.8 lens offers crisp photos through the well-built viewfinder and their...

In all honesty if I have to think of a SLR model the first to come to my mind is the Nikon F3 and, maybe, the Canon AE-1. Probably because they are definitely more common and they’ve been the flagship of this genre of camera system for decades.

I was completely unaware of the existence of this series of reflex produced by Kyocera under the name Contax and so I went a...
