I decided to add one more item to the list of things I've always wanted to do but never have the time to. I picked up this vintage Ziess Ikon Prontor-SVS 35mm recently and have delved into the world of film photography. I'm not sure I know what I'm getting into but I've always been a fan of film and before it becomes obsolete I figured, no time like the present. I will be referencing some of my photographic heroes(Bresson,Parks,Cornelius) for inspiration and try not to embarrass myself. Stay tuned...

Disclaimer - I didn't actually take these shots with this camera but wanted to showcase it's minimal 50s german design and engineering.


  1. that's a damn fine camera. Something about the feel film cameras that digital cameras just can't replicate.

  2. Thanks and true. Got my first role being processed. Should be interesting.
