Digital Classics

When 35hunter began, I was deeply embedded in 35mm film photography.

Indeed the 35 of the title referred partly to 35mm film, partly to my favourite focal length with a compact camera, and partly the age I’m planning to remain for the rest of my life.

As time passed though I moved ever closer to shooting digital cameras exclusively (I last shot film in May 2017).

Which means the pages of 35hunter have an increasing number of reviews, of sorts, of digital cameras I’ve used and enjoyed, plus images made with them.

My inner skinflint, combined with the rebel that rejects the mainstream, delights in seeking out old digital cameras long since reigned to dusty drawers or charity shops, and giving them new life, another chance to capture the beauty of the world.

So it made sense to have a dedicated page to gather these thoughts on digital classics together.

Many focus on one specific camera, some compare a few cameras in the same post, and a small set of posts at the end of this list are about shooting digital generally.

Where there’s more than one post on a camera, I would suggest reading them all to get a more balanced view, as my views sometimes change as I get to know the camera better.

Enjoy!
