The Favourite Camera Series – The Revolog Team

When asked, The Revolog Team replied:

1. If you were to choose a favourite film camera from your collection which would it be?

Hanna:  That’s a hard choice actually, but I guess I would choose my Minolta X-300.
Michael: Nikon F100.

 

2. How long have you owned this camera?

Hanna: Since 2015
Michael: Since 2009

 

3. How did you come to own this camera?

Hanna: I bought it at a used camera store in Vienna, that’s unfortunately closed now. I used to have a Minolta XG-1 that I got from my Dad, unfortunately, it broke beyond repair a couple of years ago. Having had the lenses already, I bought the X-300 as a substitute and it has been one of my most used 35mm cameras so far.
Michael: Back at photography school, where we started Revolog as our diploma project, one of our teachers put the camera on sale and I bought it.

 

4. What things do you enjoy most about this camera?

Hanna: It’s sturdy, but not too heavy, the light meter is excellent and the Minolta lenses have a nice sharpness and bokeh.
Michael: It’s very simple to use, extremely fast and most of all I can use my Nikon prime lenses, that I’ve bought for my digital Nikon.
