Back After Long Hiatus

Back After Long Hiatus:

Hey everyone!  Sorry for the overall lack of activity here recently.  March has been a very busy month for me.  I also went a way for a short last minute trip with a couple of friends.  I’m back now, and I will be answering any comments that have been left over the past couple of weeks, and I will also be replying to all my emails.  Sorry for all the late replies!  In a few of hours or sooner, I will be posting a short review on a new wrist strap as well just to get the ball rolling again.

In about a week, I will be going to Tokyo, Japan.  I will be bringing my Leica M 240 and a few lenses with me.  Bob at Bergen County Camera said he would loan me a lens if I wanted (which is extremely nice of him), so I will also be testing out something cool while I’m there for a review.  If I can get everything in order (packing, last minute stuff, etc.), I will create new content to be released during the week that I’m in Japan, so there will always be something new up on my site.

By the way, as you can see from the photo above, I bought some film (I posted a pic a while ago on my Instagram)…a pro pack of Portra 35mm but mostly medium format.  That’s because I purchased an old Hasselblad medium format film camera recently, which I’m very excited about.  From time to time, I’ve mentioned my old Mamiya 6MF fondly here.  I missed the format enough that I decided to invest back into it.  This time, I wanted to try something different, which is why I went for the Hasselblad.  It took me many months to find exactly the one I wanted.  It still hasn’t arrived yet, and it looks like I won’t get it until after I come back from Japan, so I will talk more about this later.  Again, sorry for the lack of activity!  Stay tuned for more to come!

    Good to see that you’re back again! And the trip to Japan sounds like a real opportunity of a lifetime. I remember you mentioned the possibility of visiting the Fuji museum while there & hope you can bring back some photos to share with the rest of us. Have a great time & travel safe. Cheers,

      Hi Jed,

      Thanks and it’s great to hear from you! I still have a few things I need to get done but that shouldn’t be a problem. I will be mainly in Tokyo but I will also travel to other parts of Japan. I will be checking out many of the used camera stores only because I heard that they have some of the most amazing pieces of gear. I might not be able to afford all of it but it sure doesn’t hurt to just look :). I will be bringing back a lot of photos and I will definitely share them here. As for the Fuji museum, I would love to take some photos in there but my dad told me the last time he went, photos strictly not prohibited. I guess we will see. Anyway, I will be here for a few more days, and I will be posting until I leave.

      Take care,
