In The Post

So this week has been quite busy for our postman.

The girlfriend and I are fans of oil/tart burners and have a small collection of scents…….now, I have always loved incense sticks but the girlfriend has not really been much of a fan but we agreed to take the plunge and buy some.

As you can see we (when I say we I mean I) bought quite a few different scents. With the holder I bought Angels’s Touch which has quite a cool manly smell. We also found someone who had a buy 5 get 2 free offer so we thought ‘why not?’ and ordered Lime, Nag Champa, Orange & Cinnamon, Sandlewood, Coconut, Strawberry and Honeysuckle. Not had the chance to burn any of these as they has only just come this morning but I have opened them all to have a smell and they are beautiful!

Next up I saw what was advertised as a 110 Diana clone called a Snappy and it was going for £1 so I placed a bid and won it! It just come this morning and while unboxing it I thought it looked a bit big and it turns out its a 120 camera! Im not that fussed that it’s for a different film but I am glad I didnt order some 110 film to go with it.

Did a quick test and all the features are working but the only problem is that the lens comes off and exposes all the shutter mechanism but that can easily be sorted with a little bit of glue. Im thinking the girlfriend will be wanting to play with this one once we get some nice weather and days off together.

And last but no means least is my last purchase. I have been after a Holga for over a year now and had no idea which one to get. I was after a 135 just for the ease of processing but when I saw this on eBay I had to take a chance.

So I bought a Holga GCFN. As you can see it’s the camo model, im not a big fan of that but it’s easy enough to paint so that’s something I can think about doing in the near future. The Holga came boxed along with 5 rolls of Fujifilm Superia 400 which cost about £5 per roll which is great because the whole lot only cost £22!

 

I’ll be getting reviews of the cameras up when the weather picks up and when I find the best wayto get the 120 film developed.

Not got a lot through the post this week but I did get this. Yet another eBay purchase, some medium format Shanghai GP3 100. Now I am a complete and utter novice when it comes to 120 film and have only ever used 1 roll (well I say used but it’s still in the camera) of expired Illford HP5.

Just waiting for some nice sunny days so I can get out and get shooting!

plugs Nights watch

Yes I have spoilt myself a bit this week. First off are my amazing plugs from the guys over at Sick Plugs……these are AMAZING! I put my order in on Thursday and they came today which I was not expecting at all so that has made my frigging day. I can not express just how great Sick Plugs are because not only do they have some of the best customer service I have ever seen and not only do they engage with their customers through Facebook Twitter and Instagram they also have an impeccable taste in cars. The range of designs is just amazing and go from the Deathly Hallows and Joker ones you see above through to Disney and even snowglobe ones! So please check the Sick Plugs site asap!

And last not no means least is my rather snazzy Game Of Thrones t-shirt. I couldn’t decide between a few of the designs so I have decided to get this one then slowly work my way through them all. Remember guys, Crows Before Hoes 😉

So today’s post is South Park: The Stick Of Truth!!
A massive thanks to the guys at Gioteck for sending me this to review for them. I think it’s safe to say that I’ll be spending the next few days lost in this game.

So this is my first piece of post since starting on here. As you can see its some Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400…….in other words it’s 35mm camera film and yes people still shoot with film (shocking I know). It was a great little eBay find and only cost £10 including postage which is great because I have seen it going for about £3/£4 per roll. It is expired but only by one year and has been stored in a cool place but to be safe it’s gone straight into the film draw in our fridge. Can’t wait to give it a try but first I need to finish off the films in my Zenit’s.
