The Best Camera

PRESENTED ON JAN 27, 2016
IN TOKYO @ VOL 132

"It's a bit embarrassing to talk about the tools like this, but this comes back to, after using 1000's of cameras, what I think the best camera is. I think the best camera is...."

What's the best camera ever made? Notorious photography hack and noted local yokel, Brian Scott Peterson ought to know. After all, in the course of 20 years of making photos, nearly 1000 cameras and lenses, have passed through his possession. In "The Best Camera" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 132, he shares some musings on the most treasured of his arguably modest collection, focussing in on the very best one.

Make Your Own 3D – 3D einfach selber machen

BY FRANK LORENZ
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 04, 2014

Frank Lorenz, hobby photographer and communications coach, has always been a big fan of anything 3D since 2010.  Once having seen such a photo, he knew he had to buy a 3D camera and take such photos himself.  He is never without his camera and persuades his friends to view his photos whenever possible.  Having this camera has made him see his world in a new light and given those places a different point of reference and angle.

About my photography and film camera

BY SHIHORI MIYASAKA
@ VOL 35 ON NOV 28, 2015

I am Shihori Miyasaka, an amateur photographer.
I take photos as my hobby. The cameras I use are;
Hassleblad 5000 Classic in Medium Format,
Pentax MX with 35mm film,
and NATURA CLASSICA of compact film camera.
Film camera is laborious and costly. Everything like exposure and focusing on is manual. It is a difficult point for me, and a good point of them too.
What incomparable about photo by film camera is tone of color. I always care 3 things when taking photos;
Make this photo with meanings,
Cut out the daily scene which tickles sense of fun,
and Aware of lighting in any case.
The world of photography is deep, and I am on the way to learn.
If you become interested in photography and camera, especially in film camera, I am so glad.

私の写真とフィルムカメラについて
宮坂しほりと申します。アマチュアフォトグラファーとしましたが、趣味で写真を撮っています。
私が主に使っているのは、中盤カメラのハッセルブラッド500クラシック、35mmのペンタックスMX、コンパクトカメラのナチュラクラシカというフィルムカメラです。
フィルムは手間とお金がかかります。そして、露出やピントも全てマニュアルで、はじめは苦労しました。でも、そこがいい所です。そして何よりフィルムならではの色合いがたまりません。

私は写真を撮るときに、意図を持った写真にする、日常の心くすぐる瞬間を切り取る、とにかく光を意識する、この3つを考えています。写真は奥深いもので、私もまだ勉強中です。このプレゼンで少しでも写真やカメラ、特にフィルムカメラに興味を持ってもらえればと思います。

Instant

BY TOM BODE
@ VOL 25 ON MAR 27, 2018

Tom Bode is a Portland native, entrepreneur, music composer, and photographer who loves fishing and Pacific NW history.

In the early 1990's, Tom began selling instant photos on the streets of Seattle using his grandfather's old Polaroid Land Camera 250. Over the next dozen or so years he took thousands of instant portraits around the NW and saw both Polaroid and Fuji films go out of production. Tom has been asked to speak about his experiences with instant films and why he believes they are having a comeback in popularity.
