Impossible Project Update!
FPP Super-friend Dan, better known as Nano_Burger on Flickr had a chance to check out this year’s Photokina event in Germany and managed to snag a pair of interviews with some of the dealers. First up is Danny, the PR guy from the Berlin office of the Impossible project brings some updates. First off is a twist on the classic square with their round-frame 600 film.

FoJo, You Know!
A rather unique idea, the guys at FoJo are in the manufacturing stage of making a new enlarger that is driven by your smart phone. That’s right, using your smart phone to project a digital negative through a lens and onto traditional paper and make prints!

Making Kodak Film by Robert L. Shanebrook is now into its second printing! Mat says this is the perfect book for the science heads or just those interested in the process behind film, want to order the book head over to: www.makingkodakfilm.com to put in an order!
For the Love of TLR Cameras!
Bringing back the TLR love from Episode 109 but now with the addition of Mat and Leslie! Both of them are big fans of the camera, great way to shoot medium format and certainly have style. Leslie even has a Rolleiflex Automat, one of the first TLRs to feature automatic frame counters rather than the old red/green window. The Automats were produced between 1937 and 1957. Leslie loves to shoot architecture with them. Plus the 6x6 format works great if you want to post film shots to your Instagram account!
above: TLR love! Dane loves Funky Film!
Dane loves film, and he shoots pretty much anything he can get his hands on. Current favourites include the Foto 200 from Svema along with the various and odd motion picture films avail be in the FPP On-Line Store - Eastman Double-X, Polypan-F, and more! Each film produces their own unique look, and he loves it.
above: The Foldex - it takes 120 AND 620 film!!!
Mark shows off a recent flea market purchase, part of a massive 15$ lot of accessories and cameras, the Foldex 20 by Pho-Tak is basically a medium format folding box camera. A fixed focus 105mm with fixed aperture and shutter speed. For a box camera it has some interesting features, an M-Sync’d hotshoe and the most unique part…it takes both 120 and 620 film, without need for adapters or changing settings.
