1. This Kickstarter Hopes to Bring Film Ferrania Back From the Dead

    Film Ferrania Kickstarter

    More affordable film stock options will always be a good thing

    It’s no secret that we’re still fans of film photography around these parts, so this Kickstarter campaign hits close to home. Ferrania was a film company that went bankrupt in 2003, but they’re trying to get back into the film-making game with some help from crowd funding.

    In order to get back in the game, they need three machines, all of which they already have, but they’re stuck inside old factories, which are scheduled to be demolished. They have all the materials they need to make the actual film, they just need the means of large-scale production.

    In order for donating to the cause, they’re offering rolls of the film (shipping early next year) in exchange for a pledge.

    The film they’re going to be shipping is a 100 speed color, daylight balance film that will come in 35mm, 120 (medium format) and 8mm for motion pictures.

    The campaign has already raised roughly $100K at the time of writing, so it seems pretty likely that they will hit their $250K goal.

  4. Paw prints: share your artworks about animals

    As the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition turns 50, let your imagination run wild, and share your art featuring or inspired by animals

    Perhaps its hard to picture some of the masters of art caressing a beloved pet, but from David Hockney to Frida Kahlo, artists are infatuated with animals.

    Picasso was enraptured by his friend David Douglas Duncans sausage dog, Lump, who appeared in 54 of his artworks, and Ai Weiwei reportedly owns more than 40 cats and dogs. This month the worlds most prestigious wildlife photography competition, Wildlife Photographer of the Year, is turning 50 with a new exhibition at Londons Natural History Museum.

  10. Beautiful Short Film Profiles a Classic Camera Collector

    Short Film Profiles a Classic Camera Collector

    The smell of old cameras is a unique and appealing one

    Every day is a struggle for me not to type “Ebay.com” into my browser and blow a whole bunch of money I don’t really have on old cameras. Watching a video like this makes it that much more difficult.

    The Collector from Green Renaissance on Vimeo.

    The film itself is extremely short, but it profiles a classic camera collector the film maker met while shopping in an antique store. He has more than 1,000 older cameras in his collection, including a couple amazing field cameras you can briefly see in the video.

    Im not a big collector of things in general, but seeing all that old gear is a real reminder of just how much tradition there is in this photography thing we’re so fond of. We worry a lot about image quality tests and autofocus performance, but people were out there making great photos before we had any of the fancy technology we have now. And there will be people making pictures far in the future, when our fancy toys seem about as advanced as a rock and occupy the shelves of local antique stores.

    Do you keep a collection of older cameras? Share some photos in the comments!
