 Agfa Isolette iii description and user review by Steve Walton.
After a few months of using a 61 year old Agfa Isolette iii folding camera, I have posted a description and user report on my website.  These 50-60+ year old cameras are readily available on the used market and the relatively modest cost of acquiring one means they can  represent amazing value for money for photographers who enjoy using film as their creative medium.  The really good news is they are capable of impressive image quality, too.

Most of the original manufacturers of these iconic pre-slr cameras have disappeared, but their uncomplicated and robust mechanical construction means that these cameras are relatively easily and cost effectively refurbished.  An old folding camera that has been competently serviced will be good investment for at least another six decades of use.

The power of medium format that will fit into a coat pocket!  Fun to use, but capable of seriously good images,  there is a lot to recommend …

Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT Carbon Fibre Tripod Review by Steve Walton

On location Review of the Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT Carbon Fibre Tripod
Vanguard kindly loaned me two tripods from their range of products for a detailed review on  my website.  The invitation was timely, coming just before my Wild Light Photography Workshop in Kerry & Dingle, Ireland in April 2016.  In order to fully get to grips with this tripod, I decided to take the Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT with me on the tour.  In many ways, it is an innovative design and is constructed with good quality materials and attention to functionality.  I was certainly not disappointed with my decision to take it!

The review is now live on my website:
