Tri-x chronicles: volume IV

March 9, 2011 3 comments

Tri-x chronicles: Volume III

March 2, 2011 8 comments

Back from the dead like a resurrection it’s the Tri-x chronicles volume III.  If you haven’t been following then you need to back up to the beginning for the full story.  Basically I’m only shooting Tri-x for the year of 2011.  The idea is to unlock its dark secrets and report my findings to anyone who wants to know.  If you need to go back in time and catch up do that.  Right now the saga continues.

Review: Holga 135BC

I know what your thinking.  “Why did PTC review a plastic toy camera?”  Here’s your answer.  It’s got a 47mm plastic prime lens.  We know you like your G11’s but their zooms are holding them back.  See what a real camera is made of after the link.  We know, it’s made of plastic.
