2008 – 2009 14 Day One Camera One Lens Challenge.

2008 – 2009 14 Day One Camera One Lens Challenge.


Proposed Rules and Schedule.


Commencing midnight 17th December 2008

Ending midnight 31st Dec 2008 (New Years Eve)



Camera Choice/one only … open but this is the only camera body you can use for leisure (non pro) photography for the stated period.

Lens Choice/one only … open but no zooms and also the only lens you can use for leisure (non pro) photography for the stated period.

Film/Memory Card Usage … as much as you want as often as you want.

Flash Usage … yes.

Cropping … mild cropping is ok but not landscape to portrait or vice versa.

Subject Material … portraits/landscapes/street whatever you want within reason.

Images To Be Submitted … three maximum, less if you think you’re that good you can win this thing with one.


The gallery for hosting your input will be closed on the 14th January at midnight … this allows you two weeks to get yourself organised after the 14 day shooting period ends and get your files/submissions uploaded. If you don’t think you can manage this, don’t partake!

A judging system for this competition is yet to be decided … I’m open to suggestions but I favour a small panel of judges made up of respected experienced forum members with suitable qualifications. Volunteers for this arduous task would receive my eternal gratitude … but not much else! Stephen has suggested just using the system of members voting for their favourites in the gallery.

The winner/winners will receive the plaudits and constant admiration of fellow forum members for some time to come … but in reality, little else! We are just here for the fun of it after all.

Count me in. Leica Model A w/close focus Elmar loaded with either Tech Pan 25 or Efke 25 will fit the bill.

P.S. to make things fair... I'm back from Iraq.

Cheers!

I'm in, too. With my Contax going off to Eddie, it's going to be SLR time. Canon T90 w/ a nice old FD 50/1.4 lens... let's make a virtue out of a necessity!

@keith - hope so!! still trying to figure out how i managed to completely mangle my last roll of provia. looks like it was already exposed before going into the camera. the other rolls came out fine...so definitely a user error on my part.

Hmmm, why not.
I'll guess the rolleiflex suits me best for this.

FED-2 and an I-22.

A pair so nice it's a crime,
so nice they had to make it rhyme.

FED-2 and I-22
take it out my pocket and fondle it in the loo.

This is going to encourage some weird choices I supect. At the moment I'm torn between my Crown Graphic with the stock 135mm lens, 1930 Leica 1a with fixed f3.5 5cm Elmar and my Kiev II and Jupiter 3.

Choosing my Ikon and 50mm Hex would just seem ilogically seamless!

I hear you. With the Contax broken, I thought about several of them (Graphic & Contaflex especially) but I wanted to at least have a nice meter available for the family snappies over Christmass along with the project shots. So the Tank is it for me. (But if I owned that Leica, I'd probably go with it )

This sounds fun, count me in.

Fed 2 with a Fed 50mm.

Not as catchy as Climbing Vine's jingle but just as fondle-able in the loo.

Last time I used the 1930 1a I broke it which required a trip to Youxin ... who I might mention chastised me for using such a beautiful camera so casually. He loves 1a's and has one himself and pointed out to me that mine was in far nicer condition than his and maybe I should consider being a little more judicious with my use of it in future!

That said it is the hot favourite at the moment.

I walked into a camera store today and fondled a Bronica SQ. Looking down into that waist level finder & thinking about those nice 6x6 negs! I want that camera bad. I think! By the 14th would be nice. But I have to think rational. I'm in.... but what to use?

I'm in. Having been a participant in the One Camera, One Lens, One Film Challenge organized by Kent 3 years ago, I feel like a veteran going into battle. I've got a new to me 35mm Summilux that will work nicely. This should be fun.

Ok, I need to bond with my Bessa T and Voigtländer Collapsible Heliar 50mm f3.5...



We seem to be at loggerheads at the moment, so 14 days of forced togetherness should either be the making or breaking of the relationship...

Great idea, count me in! Haven't decided on the camera/lens combination yet though. Not that I have so many to choose from...

Sorry. Can't do this one, going to the mountains in Spain for Christmas and will be using my CV15 on my L and 35/75 on my R2

My R4 is in Denmark on a graffiti shooting project with Adox CMS20 at the moment.

Next time I will be in with my Nokton 35 1.4 MC on the R2

There will be people at five minutes to midnight on the seventeenth with two or three cameras and lenses on the table in front of them wringing their hands in anguish at still not having decided ... which combo!



I've just remembered I get my Rolleiflex T back next week from having it's lens cleaned. (fungus) Also tempting!

Well, rules say - no zooms, so I guess Plaubel it is for ya? Which is good - I'd love to see some pics from it.

I'm in, but my photo-taking time will be limited since I have a trip to Australia at the start of January. I'll have to process, scan and submit before I go. Too good a challenge to miss, though.

OK, I want to play as well. I am thinking of two fairly different cameras for this; either the Retina IIIC or Bessa R2a and Jupiter-11...
I'll decide before the 17th.

Too bad that one cannot crop. I crop almost every shot, it is natural thing to do before printing...
Still not sure whether I'm in or not, but I still have time to decide :)

RE cropping ... I have nothing against cropping at all and do it myself regularly. I just thought for this event/exercise whatever you want to call it, it would be nice to see all the images exactly as the camera/shooter saw them at the time of the shot.

You can always crop them later when it's all over!

I'm up for the challenge, I know which camera I'd like to use, but as the roolz sez I can only use one camera and one lens for the whole two weeks my 1966 Brownie will have to sit on the shelf.

Hopefully I'll have some new kit (thanks to Richard's thread) to get to know and this will be a great opportunity to do just that.
