Modern Classic? – Fuji Panorama Cardia

How can a plastic fantastic from the 1990s be a modern classic? Well for one, to still find one of these 35mm film cameras still unused in its original box is getting harder and harder to find.

Chasing Classic Cameras – Canon EOS Rebel G

A very simple 35mm SLR camera with outstanding features that hold up well even today. The EOS Rebel G was released in late 1996 featuring the latest in Canon’s autofocus and auto exposure technologies. The Cano EOS cameras also used Canon’s well respected EF family of lenses which could be switched to manual focus in an instant. I’ve always found these cameras to provide excellent results without the crazy weight of a more traditional SLR. I also have the Canon EOS Rebel 2000 that immediately followed the Rebel G in late 1999.

I believe that the Canon EOS Rebel G and EOS Rebel 2000 are underrated cameras in today’s marketplace. If you can find one-owner, gently used cameras and matching lenses they make great 35mm film cameras that are perfect for the beginner and the seasoned film photographer.

Here’s an interesting link from Canon – https://global.canon/en/c-museum/product/film190.html

Chasing Classic Cameras -Nikon U2 – end of the line Nikon 35mm SLR

Also known as the Nikon N75 in North America and the F75 everywhere else outside of Japan. It’s a sophisticated autofocus and auto exposure 35mm film camera that uses almost all of Nikon’s F mount lenses.

Original list price in 2003. It’s actually a very expensive film camera in it’s day. At about 110 JPY to USD puts it in the high $500 range.

This particular camera had the date time display option so technically it would be the Nikon U2 QD.

No Love Fuji? The Discovery 90 Date

This wonderful Fuji deserves another look.

Chasing Classic Cameras with Chris

The plastic fantastic wonders of the 1980s and 1990s generally receive no love – especially looking back on them with our digitized eyeballs in 2017. These overlooked (even when new for the most part) cameras were the bridge cameras for many photographers that were moving away from their bulky SLRs from the 1970s and looking for something easy, carefree and light to take with them on short outings and family get togethers. The 35mm format was the clear winner in the format wars, now manufacturers wanted think-free 35s that were as easy to use as falling outta bed (?).

DSCF5081

This Fuji Discovery 90 Date was introduced in May 1993 to an already crowded plastic 35mm marketplace. So how to stand out? Drop-in loading, auto focus, auto exposure auto rewind and auto wind was a good start. A big bright viewfinder centered over the lens – and macro capability (23 1/2…
