As the first month of 2021 nears it’s end, I thought I’d check in with you all to let you know that I am still alive and well, and that in only five more days I will resume my normal cadence of weekly reviews and other articles.
Perhaps you’ve noticed a few postings this month as I pushed out single article versions of last October’s 9th Cameras of the Dead article, along with a list of cameras found in movies that was originally posted on Reddit. I also righted a few wrongs from a 2018 review of the Zeiss-Ikon Contessa 35, but other than these few posts, I haven’t posted anything truly new since the Aires 35-V review on December 17th.
In the last month and a half, I have been working on reviews for cameras that I shot in 2020 which I never got around to writing about. I try to prioritize reviews for cameras that don’t have a lot of information already out on the internet, or if it’s a camera that is common, I usually like to find something new to say about it that’s not me churning out the same praise that everyone else has.
As I write this, I have completed 15 new camera reviews, and other than a final proofreading, are ready to go. I have another three that are roughly half completed, and another five are in their early stages. I also have the next four Keppler’s Vault’s planned, two of which will serve double duty as both a Keppler’s Vault and a camera review in one. I am also in the early stages of a feature article and my next two One Hour Photo interviews.
Finally, as I mentioned in my 2020 Year in Review, I still plan on trying to branch out into the world of YouTube videos, but that plan is still in it’s early stages.
I look forward to getting these reviews out and hearing from you all, and I really hope you enjoy reading them as much as I liked writing about them. Here’s to a great 2021!
Hi, Mike. Glad to hear you’re ready to go with some new reviews following you annual hiatus to recharge your batteries! I can’t wait to learn which goodies you have lined up for us.
Thanks for the feedback Terry! I definitely have some cool stuff planned. A mix of super rare to super common, point and shoot, SLR, TLR, rangefinder, medium format, folders, you name it, nothing is off the table!
Mike, good to hear you’re doing stuff while hibernating… expand and explore!
Always good reading! Looking forward to the future installments! (Peter T)
