The Favourite Camera Series – Wallace

When asked, Wallace replied:

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

Of all my cameras my favourite has to be my Rolleiflex E3 TLR with its 80mm f2.8 Schneider Xenotar lens.

 

2. How long have you owned this camera?

I’ve had this camera for over 25 years.

 

3. How did you come to own this camera?

Besides being a fantastic camera and an example of beautiful design one of the reasons that this is my favourite camera is that it was given to me by my father.

 

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

The thing that gives me the greatest joy with this camera is seeing the scene in front of me projected onto the ground glass focusing screen.  That moment of wonder never diminishes.
