The Best Camera

BY BRIAN SCOTT PETERSON
@ VOL 132 ON JAN 27, 2016

"It's a bit embarrassing to talk about the tools like this, but this comes back to, after using 1000's of cameras, what I think the best camera is. I think the best camera is...."

What's the best camera ever made? Notorious photography hack and noted local yokel, Brian Scott Peterson ought to know. After all, in the course of 20 years of making photos, nearly 1000 cameras and lenses, have passed through his possession. In "The Best Camera" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 132, he shares some musings on the most treasured of his arguably modest collection, focussing in on the very best one.

About my photography and film camera

BY SHIHORI MIYASAKA
@ VOL 35 ON NOV 28, 2015

I am Shihori Miyasaka, an amateur photographer.
I take photos as my hobby. The cameras I use are;
Hassleblad 5000 Classic in Medium Format,
Pentax MX with 35mm film,
and NATURA CLASSICA of compact film camera.
Film camera is laborious and costly. Everything like exposure and focusing on is manual. It is a difficult point for me, and a good point of them too.
What incomparable about photo by film camera is tone of color. I always care 3 things when taking photos;
Make this photo with meanings,
Cut out the daily scene which tickles sense of fun,
and Aware of lighting in any case.
The world of photography is deep, and I am on the way to learn.
If you become interested in photography and camera, especially in film camera, I am so glad.

私の写真とフィルムカメラについて
宮坂しほりと申します。アマチュアフォトグラファーとしましたが、趣味で写真を撮っています。
私が主に使っているのは、中盤カメラのハッセルブラッド500クラシック、35mmのペンタックスMX、コンパクトカメラのナチュラクラシカというフィルムカメラです。
フィルムは手間とお金がかかります。そして、露出やピントも全てマニュアルで、はじめは苦労しました。でも、そこがいい所です。そして何よりフィルムならではの色合いがたまりません。

私は写真を撮るときに、意図を持った写真にする、日常の心くすぐる瞬間を切り取る、とにかく光を意識する、この3つを考えています。写真は奥深いもので、私もまだ勉強中です。このプレゼンで少しでも写真やカメラ、特にフィルムカメラに興味を持ってもらえればと思います。
