  • Amden and hunting for Eagle

    Last few months were not very productive regarding my photographic adventures, mostly because of the poor weather, secondly because I was missing my inspiration.

  • Zurich Christmas market and lightshow

    Last year we didn't attend many Christmas market events, however, we were told about the light festival (Illuminarium - Yuki ist da) which took place in Landesmuseum Zürich.

  • Raspberry Pi based home made light meter for analogue camera

    As soon as I bought my first medium format camera, Yashica MAT 124G I realized that there will have a problem with exposure meter.

  • New in the family: Xiaomi Mijia Sphere Camera – review

    For the first time I had a contact with 360° photos in 2013 when I have bought my first smartphone: Google Nexus 4. Already back then Nexus's camera had an option to create 360° photos. At this point, I thought it will be just a passing fashion and nothing else. The hype for so-called virtual…
  • Analog Diary II

I was waiting for them even more intrigued because this time I also sent films from my first medium format camera, Yashica MAT 124G. I was not even sure if this camera and the exposure meter work properly so…
