A present from the past

Amateur Photographer - - 7 Days -

My 18-year-old nephew in­vited me to check out his ‘dig­i­tal’ cam­era. Sift­ing through some of his first-rate A4 colour street shots I was amazed to see he was us­ing a hum­ble Ko­dak Retinette 1A, given to him as a gift. He’d had his HP5 neg­a­tives pro­fes­sion­ally scanned. It’s since been aug­mented by a more ‘up to date’ Mi­randa Sen­so­mat with waist-level finder that also turns out beau­ti­fully sharp neg­a­tives. Scan­ning film shot on clas­sic cam­eras is a won­der­ful way to com­bine the past and the present. Kevin Wil­son, Tyne and Wear
