Camera Legend Camera Style :-)

On Instagram, “Camera Style” postings are seemingly very popular. In case you’re unfamiliar with what that is, it’s just shots of people with their cameras around town in cities and countries around the world. I’m not sure who started this trend, but I think it started with Tokyo Camera Style.

It’s a great idea actually, a win-win especially for views I guess. It’s basically “Camera Porn” and “Lens Porn” or  “Eye Candy” for a more softcore word! And what camera gear lover wouldn’t want to look at more cameras and lenses? ๐Ÿ™‚

So in the spirit of Tokyo Camera Style and all the other “Camera Style” accounts out there, here’s mine…

Today I spotted in the light NYC rain, a woman in Central Park, NYC, shooting with the original Canon EOS-1Ds, 11mp monster from 2001! A true digital Camera Legend. And on top of that, she had the delicious Super PHAT 85mm f/1.2L ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

I said that’s awesome kid! Youโ€™re right down my alley with that gear! ๐Ÿ˜ I know a lot of you guys and gals shoot with the older stuff like I do, but Iโ€™ve not met too many in the real world whoโ€™s shooting with a digital camera this old. Everyone wants the latest and greatest. I said ROCK ON girl!

Hereโ€™s what I shot with yesterday. Film was Fuji C200 color print film. The camera is the Olympus OM-3 that you may have seen before but what you have NOT seen until now is my favorite manual focus zoom lens and itโ€™s the Zuiko 35-80mm f/2.8 ๐Ÿ˜

I got the lens like ten years ago. These lenses go for over $1000 but mine was under $300 ๐Ÿ˜Š

Why? It was the most optically โ€œuglyโ€ lens Iโ€™d ever seen! Inside looks like fungus, coatings deterioration, flakes inside the lens ๐Ÿ˜ข

I was so bummed out when I got it. But even with all those flaws, this is the sharpest manual focus zoom Iโ€™ve ever used!! Praise the Zuiko gods! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Why did I shoot it this weekend? Hopefully to do a review for you guys! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hope you guys enjoyed this little bit of “Camera Style.” Maybe there will be more to come. Happy Tuesday folks! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ˜˜โœŒ๐Ÿป
