Photo Of The Day: Wat Phra Kaew 1995 Canon EOS 10s Ektachrome Film

The above photo was taken at Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok, Thailand in 1995. Just one of many beautiful structures in this complex regarded as the most sacred temple in Thailand due primarily to being the home of the Emerald Buddha.

But this post is not about the temple. Although that would make a nice long article I think! It is a look back at the “good old days” of one camera, two lenses.

The camera was a then fairly new to me Canon EOS 10s. Basically an Elan class enthusiast model. I shudder to think what I paid for this back then! Today, this camera would set you back $10 bucks or less! 😊

I may or may not write more about this camera in the future, we’ll see as our dear President always says 😊

It’s been so well superseded by other cameras that it seems not worth the bother of doing a review. Yet at the same time, I used it during a period between 1994-1999 in which I took some of my favorite images and did do using only this camera and two lenses…and cheap lenses at that! πŸ˜€

But more on that in future postings. The film I used was Ektachrome 100 I believe. Not the newly released emulsion, the original one!

Back then using slide film to me is like using a different camera sensor today. Well, all films can be thought of this way.

I look back now at photos like this and miss the vibrancy of slide film. Any of you guys remember how great it was projected huge onto a white wall? Awesome!

I used pretty much one camera and two lenses back then and you know what? I think I took better pics than I do now with a myriad of cameras! 😊

Ah those good old days of the mid 90s…Cheers!

      1. 1995…when digital was not even part of the lexicon! (Although in our lab we had a ferociously expensive Minolta SLR which made low grade B&W images at that time. It was some type of DiMage but I don’t recall the exact model) I still remember Rad and I lusting over the EOS 3 at Javits back then. BTW that is a gorgeous image with the Ektachrome. Really hearkens back Brosky.

      2. Thanks Bro-Sky!! You should open a blog here and post your images, I know you got a lot of awesome stuff and memories to share. And it’s free man!! πŸ™‚


  1. You have to let me know how. I’ll have more time when I retire (soon!). Incidentally do you have experience with the EOS 3? It always intrigued me and almost got me acquiring a Canon outfit. If so how about putting that on your backlog?
    Incidentally back to the pic, only slide film could capture that tone/texture on the temple.
