When photographers talk "resolution" they usually measure it in megapixels. Today we're talking about a different sort of resolution, the kind that involves goals, intentions and idealized plans. Whether or not we follow our resolutions is irrelevant in my mind. Outlining a carefully considered course of action for 2024 and exploring new photography options are what it's really all about.

Today’s quick tutorial is a throwback to the days before electronic cameras, without autofocus, built-in meters, and other modern conveniences.

The landmark Kine Exakta camera of 1936 was world’s first successful 35mm SLR. Although the Russians announced their Sport 35mm SLR a year earlier, this ingenious but ungainly clunker was made in limited quantities from about 1937-1941 and distributed only in the Soviet Union. The Kine Exakta, on the other hand, was an instant international success and its maker, Ihagee of Dresden, Germany, produced it and its successors in huge quantities, enjoying robust worldwide sales.

The renaissance in film photography these days has created the need for a “wet” darkroom. It’s a fun alternative to digital printmaking. Nothing beats watching an image come to life in the developing tray.

We’re not, typically, fans of colorizing old photographs and film, but an upcoming World War I documentary with restored and colorized footage of soldiers during the Great War, looks unbelievable. Called They Shall Not Grow Old, the movie was produced and directed by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings fame.

As I confidently predicted last time, you can’t possibly please everybody when it comes to picking the best, the greatest, or the most influential cameras ever made. After we posted our list of The Top 20 Greatest Cameras of All Time, it came as no surprise that we received a ton of emails, varying in tone from pugnacious condemnation, to anguish, to polite suggestion, all begging to differ with our first top ten choices.

There’s been a remarkable resurgence in shooting with film lately, as young photographers have become intrigued with 35mm cameras. Likewise, older photographers have rediscovered vintage cameras lurking in their photo cabinets, and plastic bags of expired film in the back of their refrigerators.

One of the products that flew under the radar when Nikon introduced the now widely acclaimed D850 DSLR about a year ago was the Nikon ES-2 Digitizing Adapter ($150), which works in concert with the D850 to turn 35mm slides and negatives into digital images. We haven’t gotten a chance to try it ourselves, but photographer David Flores has, and in the below video he gives you a step-by-step demonstration of how it works.
