The workhorse Canon EOS 620

The Canon EOS 620 is a hidden gem. A prosumer workhorse that you can get for extremely reasonable prices.

If you follow my posts you’ll see a trend with where the EOS 620 shows up. When I need something easy, reliable, and good, I grab the EOS 620.

It helps that I have some decent (and some funky) Canon EF (auto-focus) lenses from my wedding photography days. Originally I started with a Elan 7 and a EOS 650. I still have the Elan 7. It’s a decent camera that I still use that warrants

Saginaw Art Museum Gardens

The Saginaw Art Museum is a really unique place in Saginaw, Michigan. It’s run by a handful of dedicated individuals who truly believing in bring art to the public and preserving it for future generations. I used to work part time here and still help out with exhibit prep as needed.

Big “Oops!” with Svema MZ-3

Boatload of cult film!

Recently this article on the nostalgia and cult brand of Kodak popped up on my radar.

When the headline caught my attention my first thought was that Kodak isn’t a cult brand, it was like Coca Cola to Fuji’s Pepsi. I thought “if you want a cult film brand, try Efke!”
