I gave Steffy a yellow Instax Mini camera as a Christmas present last year, and we have really love it and bring it on most trips now. The photos are small and soft but still have that dreamy instant feeling everyone loves. Also its nice to just point and shoot sometimes! Of course i'm sure it will be just the gateway to a new instant film obsession, and i'll soon move on to full size instax, instax wide, and then i'll be selling my kidney to buy polaroid film on Ebay...

I decided to change things up and go mainly digital on our trip to Iceland and Amsterdam this May. I rented a Zeiss Batis 25mm lens to use with my sony A7S II, figuring it would be nice to have some wide, sharp photos. I thought the lens was really great (though the built in LCD is a useless gimmick) and the photos and colors look awesome. It was also nice having reliable auto focus, since all of my other lenses are Canon EF used with an adapter. Enjoy!

Here's a couple of images from my trip to South Africa earlier this month, all shot on a Yahsica Electro 35 GTN with Cinestill 50D pushed +2. The picture of the aloe plant which was really underexposed ended up being my favorite in a happy accident. I think in hindsight it's pretty obvious I didn't have the right camera for wildlife shooting but since I only had 3.5 days, I wanted to bring a rangefinder and keep it easy and quick.
