If you love old film cameras and constantly want to know more about them, then we’ve got the perfect YouTube channel for you. It’s called, appropriately enough, “Old Cameras” and even veteran film photographers might learn a thing or two from a few of the videos.
Thanks goes out to Reddit user Rainbow_Trumpet for finding the channel, which quickly absorbed a few hours of our time this morning.
Created by Ade Torrent, the channel is dedicated to “Medium format, 35mm, SLR, Rangefinder, Point and Shoot, Toy camera[s]” and more. In each episode he describes the camera in question, talks about its history and how to use it, and often goes out and actually shoots with it. Cameras reviewed include the Yashica Electro 35 GTN (video above), Nikon F-501 AF, Fotorama PC-500, Zeiss Super Ikonta 530, and much more.
Here are a few of his recent videos:
This is an awesome find, and a great channel for anybody who loves old cameras or wants to know more about them. But fair warning: you can spend (not waste, spend) a LOT of time on this channel…
