Linhof Kardan Color camera and ShenHao camera


So, this is a follow up post from my latest post, when I had to return borrowed Linhof Master Technika, but now I’ve bought two 4×5″ cameras. Jure Breceljnik, my friend and classmate from FAMU Academy sold me Linhof Kardan Color camera and her little sister ShenHao camera. Jure bought Linhof camera from our classmate Ivana Tomanović (ex. Brezovac), so the camera remains in FAMU class 1998. But the best part are lenses! First league all of them! Carl Zeiss Jena 90mm f/4,5, Schneider 135mm f/3,5 and Rodenstock 210mm f/5,6. In a huge case I got also trillion of accessories for those ladies. I’m so happy this digital revolution is raging (Digital Hysteria?), so I can run my own analog counter-revolution in photography.

I’m not sure if you know this term counter-revolutionary, but in former Yugoslavia under communism it was the nastiest allegation ever! A remark that you were a capitalist pig was a compliment comparing to a contra-revolutionist remark. Anyhow now we’re upgraded from revolutionaries to consumers and we all live under one bright capitalist sky and there is no such thing as revolution nor contra-revolution and a remark capitalist pig sounds more as an expression of envy then an insult word.

Bellow are few test images that I’ve shot few days ago. My wife Alenka Peterlin shot a great portrait of me! She is also a photographer and you can check her site. Currently I’m still testing the equipment doing a weekend art project. More to follow…

PS: Check a trailer of Jure Breceljnik’s movie Chalk & Chocolate!

Torej, kje sem oni dan ostal? Potem ko sem moral vrniti kamero Linhof Master Tehnika sem kupil dve 4×5″ kameri! Jure Breceljnik, moj prijatelj in sošolec s praške FAMU, mi je prodal Linhof Kardan Color in njeno malo sestro ShenHao kamero. Jure pa je kupil kamero od najine sošolke Ivane Tomanović (ex. Brezovac), tako vse ostane v FAMU familiji :-) Ampak najjači pa so objektivi: Carl Zeiss Jena 90mm f/4,5, Schneider 135mm f/3,5 and Rodenstock 210mm f/5,6! Poleg tega sem v ogromnem kufru dobil še en milijon dodatkov, za optimalno ježo teh zveri. Kako sem vesel, da vlada digitalna revolucija, ki meji že na histerijo, tako lahko v miru zganjam svojo osebno kontra-revolucijo. Kdo bi si mislil, da bom bil kdaj kontrarevolucionar! To je bila včasih v Jugoslaviji najbolj žaljiva opazka, poleg katere je kapitalistična svija zvenela kot kompliment. A sedaj vsi povišani iz revolucionarjev v potrošnike in živimo v svetlem kapitalizmu, revolucija in kotra-revolucija več ne obstajata in opazka kapitalistična svinja zveni bolj kot izraz zavidanja kot žaljenja.

Spodaj je nekaj posnetkov, ki sem jih naredil in portret mene, ki ga je posnela moja žena Alenka Peterlin. Tudi ona je odlična fotografinja, poglejte si njeno stran. Trenutno še vedno testiram in se privajam na novo opremo, tako delam en umetniški vikend projekt.

PS: Oglejte si film in pa trailer Juretovega filma Chalk & Chocolate!

  4. Oh, JC, you still owe me two prints, remember? I mean only from this summer. And from you I expect some original satiric comment, a comment that will shine a different light on a topic or a different light off topic, capish?
    Are you in Romania now? Gaypride Bukarest!
