Episode 22 – Terrifying Deathtraps of Awesome Fun

It’s been a minute, but we are back and wow are we chatty!

After a bit of catching up, we dive right into our answering machine question. This was an easy one:

Tell us about your summer photography.

It was last minute, but we got some great answers. Also, Eric rues the loss of his five-minute Bronica. We answer this ourselves as well.

We don’t normally do a lot of on-mic gear talking – except when we do. And we do. We took a slew-ish of cameras with us on this little photo excursion, and we will tell you all the hell about them.

Tired of that, we give a call to Anne Hollond (@annehollond). While in Kansas, we palled around with her for a few days (in a socially distant sort of way). It was amazing as we talk a lot about.

Here are a couple of our photos from Bison, Kansas:

Camera: Hasselblad 500C
Film: Ektar 100
Taken by Vania
Camera: Kodak Brownie No 2, Model D (1914)
Film: Kodak Tmax 400; x-08/2004
Process: Rodinal; 1+50; 12min
July 2020

For the “back half” of the episode, we go over the ins and outs, ups and downs of a long ass photo trip. We get sassy.

We wrap up the episode with a couple of zine reviews. First up was Haxes by 𝐉.𝐌 𝐀π₯𝐦πͺ𝐯𝐒𝐬𝐭 (haexes). You can pick it up at Haexes.com.

Second, we looked at Wa/onderer #1 by Jaso Biehner (@jasonbiehner).

And finally, we announced the release of our zine: 6×7 – 6×7 is a zine celebrating the Mamiya RB67, perhaps the most perfect camera ever made (mileage may vary).

We each selected 30ish of our favorite photos and created a zine around them. This issue reflects the love and chaos, messiness and beauty that is film photography.

But this is not a mere photozine. The photos, still the central feature, are placed within two-page spreads made up of various related and unrelated bits and bobs.

It is available here.

Be sure to check out our Dev Party episodes. They’re about to get even more pee-inducing!

  1. I’m just listening to this episode where Eric describes getting a broken Bronica in the mail. This literally just happened to me via and eBay seller where the guy in Michigan shipped it to me and did NOT package it correctly and it came shattered from the top down. Majorly heartbreaking.


  2. Just experienced the old film taping issue on my RB67 ! Not sure what tape is best to re-tape, going to experiment !
