Episode 32: The Nerdiest Film Photography Podcast

We’re back!  The gang and I are fresh off a mandatory 28 day rehab cleanse from all our GAS afflictions!

To help us get back on the wagon, we only invited one guest to catch up on what we’ve all been up to since our last episode.  From Fort Dodge, Iowa, Mike Novak returns to discuss what he’s been up to, what his favorite Rolleiflex is, and a whole bunch of tips and tricks about in-home developing.

In this episode, Mike shares a bunch of new cameras he’s working on reviews for, things Paul is about to put for sale in his shop, and Theo’s newest Father’s Day pickup.  We spend a great deal of time talking about Mamiya and their zillions of lens mounts they’ve made for 35mm cameras, an uncommon 24mm x 24mm square format 35mm camera, and different ways to make double exposures.

As always, the topics we discuss are decided by you.  The guys and I rarely know where each episode is going to go until it happens, so if you’d like to join us on a future episode, be sure to look out for our show announcements on our Camerosity Podcast Facebook page, and right here on mikeeckman.com.  We record every other Monday and announcements, along with the Zoom link are typically shared 2-3 days in advance.

So stay tuned, and if you’d like to ask us a question or give us some topics to discuss, look for our show announcement for Episode 33, which we will record on Monday, September 19th!
