Kent Andreasen on his Mamiya RB67 #celebratephotography

We recently stumbled upon Boooooom’s Camera Stories and Kent Andreasen‘s camera story is so good! His love for his camera and how it functions is palpable and it makes us feel like we’re in on a secret.

The Mamiya 67 is a battle tank, that’s the best way for me to describe it. It feels like you’re holding some sort of weapon from one of the world wars. The weight is one of the reasons I like it. It feels like it has purpose, like you’re out there doing something of significance. What’s funny is half the time I’m taking photographs of flowers in my garden. The mechanics of it are also appealing. The film advance and shutter cock have a real visceral feeling.

The mirrored effect means it takes a bit of getting used and my friends often look into it with confusion and dismay.

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
