Getting into Medium Format on a budget? Shooting a dusty old relic and tired of that dim, fuzzy screen? Check the mirror! It takes only a few moments of (careful!) work to pull the viewfinder hood and focusing screen (careful again! Focusing screens are ultra fragile). Thanks to a few dedicated individuals and the power of eBay, custom count mirrors are cheap and easy to obtain. #photography #mediumformat #rolleiflex #cameearepair #cameramaintenance #oldcamera #vintagecamera #brokephotocollective #tlr #rollei

One of the great bargains in photography is old photo books. Sure, a lot of modern photography is digital, so the Darkroom Handbook might be better suited to film photographers, but most books contain a wealth of knowledge on techniques. Check thrift stores and even the library for older photos books to Lear about how to deal with things like slow shutter speeds in dark environments or some of the theory behind how we perceive color vs how photographs present colors to us. For those shooting black and white, there is a ton of knowledge on using light and contrast. Even information on push processing will help digital photographers recreate certain looks. #photography #brokephotocollective #digitalphotography #filmpbotography #photographytechniques #phototips #readabook #knowledge #photographysouls #photographyeveryday #photographylover #worldbestgram #iglobal_photographers #ig_great_pics #ig_myshot  #shotwithlove #justgoshoot #xposuremag  #icatching  #collectivelycreate  #wanderlust #heatercentral  #highsnobiety #shotzdelight

Time for a #brokephotocollective Budget lens quick take. Quick takes will gauge a bit of I formation about the lens and some samples for you to check out. Today’s budget lens: The Nikkor 200mm f4 Q This 4-element telephoto was introduced for the Nikon F in 1961. The early version has a silver band and smaller focusing ring. Somewhere in the late 60s, the lens was redesigned with a longer all-black focusing ring as seen here. This version is supposed to have a bit better performance. That last version added a “C” to signify multi-coating. The later AI Nikkor 200mm f4 is a more compact 5-element design that is widely regarded to be an excellent performer. Because of the reputation of the later 5-element version, this classic 4 element Nikkor-Q is available for next to nothing. We haven’t tried the earlier silver band Nikkor Q, but the pictured one held its own vs an AI Nikkor 200/4 with perhaps a bit more CA and a bit less contrast. Features: - Well dampened Wide focusing ring for easy manual focusing. - Uses a cheaper 52mm filter - Built in lens hood - Will survive war, time, a zombie apocalypse, an accidental drop - Adaptable to modern mirrorless cameras with an adaptor or mixer Nikon DSLRs with an AI conversion - Can be used as a defensive weapon in a pinch (and will probably still work okay) #photography #ishootfilm #filminotdead #phototips #classiclens #nikkor #200mm #cameragear #lensporn #adventure #analog #oldlens #brokephotocollective #nikon200mm #tessar #nikon200mmf4 #nikkor200mm #teamnikon #nikkorq #ishootfilm #200mmlens

We at the BrokePhotoCollective love all sorts of cameras. When we are out and about, our first choice is usually going to be one of our various SLRs. If you want to travel light, most people reach for their cell phone. 10 years ago, a digital compact would be the go to. In the pre-digital days, there was a small number of subcompact “travel” cameras: Then Minox 35, Rollei 35 and Olympus Pen camera’s were popular, but generally used scale focusing where the photographer had to guess the distance. The Japanese camera makers created compact rangefinders like the Konica C35, Canon QL28 or Minolta Hi-Matic 7E. In the 1980s, Olympus introduced a subcompact camera with a built-in Rangefinder the Olympus XA. These days, an XA isn’t exactly budget friendly, but we have been talking about them in the collective and dug our a few shots from all the way back in 1997/1998. Make no mistake, the XA was a superb little camera for those wanting to travel light, but maintain full control over their photography. #pocketcamera #olympus35mm #brokephotocollective #olympus #olympusxa #ishootfilm #filmphotography #35mm #compactcameraclub #film #analogphotography #analog #travelphotography #adventure #rangefinder

The age old debate on Instagram! We at the brokephotocollective have varying levels of experience with both! Each format has its advantages and weaknesses, but both are capable of great results. We are of course suckers for cool old film cameras and the magic that is developing, but you are just as likely to see us shooting vintage glass on a DSLR during our journeys or even full on optimized digital lenses for those times when we are in mom/dad or paparazzi mode. Our aim is to bring together all photographers to showcase and share tips and tricks for getting the most out of whatever gear we are using at the time. Please share your cool tips, tricks and processes or tag us in your shots or your friends’ shots to show off your talents. Doesn’t matter if you have a Leica, a Brownie, an iPhone or even a DIY wet plate setup: share your stories and adventures. #photography #filmphotography #digitalphotography #ishootfilm #filmisnotdead #classiclenses #vintagecamera #dslr #35mm #120film #photogear #phototips #brokephotocollective #manualfocus #adventure #travelphotography #film #digital #photographylove #nikon #canon #kodak #fujifilm #sony #leica #hasselblad #bronica #kiev #argus #pentax

Swipe for samples of this lens on DSLR body. . The Nikon E Series 75-150mm f3.5 is a fantastic, sharp, and often cheap zoom lens. It has a quirky push/pull zoom ring that also twists to focus . It is fairly small but very well built (mostly aluminum), my copy focuses and zooms very smooth. One of the most significant features of this lens is that it has a constant min aperture across it's entire zoom range, other zooms with this feature are hundreds of dollars. The famous photo of a Rainbow over the Dalai lama's palace by Galen Rowell was taken with this lens! . . . . . . #nikon75 #nikon150 #nikon #nikon75150 #nikoneseries #zoomlens #nikonft #nikonlens #vintagelens #cheaplens #budgetlens #brokephotocollective #brokephoto #budgetphotography #nikonftn #nikonft2 #nikonslr @nikonusa @nikon #ishootfilm #filmisnotdead #75mm #150mm #150mmchallenge #150mmlens #instagood #teamnikon
