A few weeks with the Canon Zoom XL

Its bigger than your average point and shoot, but definitely makes up for it in performance!! The Canon Zoom XL feels really solid in your hand, auto-focus is fast, and it even has a removable infrared remote for those analog selfies!

Sepulveda Dam w/ Derek – Mamiya 6 Folding Rangefinder

Film Photographic Group Photo Show - Canon Photura

Its been a while since I brought out the Canon Photura, and I'm glad I did!  This thing is basically a 'futuristic' (from the 90's) mix between an SLR and a point and shoot camera.  And everyone just thinks its a camcorder when they first see it. This was a great photo show hosted by Film Photographic at Our Vodka's Los Angeles Distillery in Downtown LA on October 6th, 2016. Film Photographic is a co-curated community gallery and resource page by and for film photographers. Featured Artists: Ray Barbee, Dustin Beatty, David Black, Eric Bouvet, Valerie J.
