Club Rollei User – Issue 47

by John Wild

John is nostalgic about an old photography book he owned when he was a young man. All he can recall is that the word ‘Photography’ is in the title. He has now set himself a task to track down a replacement copy…. Good Luck to him… for the rest of us we have another book with ‘Rollei’ in the title to read.

by John Wild

Shouldn’t technology just work? Well not for John as he battles with the printer that makes pulling together a magazine just that little bit harder. He has still managed to find some time to buy a new camera though!

Club Rollei User – Issue 38

by John Wild

John questions whether the digitalisation of practically everything is cheapening our memories. Physical items have a history and provide insight into the time that item was owned and used. Perhaps the return of vinyl records will be the start of a resurgence of other physical items that are now all but digitalised… bring back film!

Club Rollei User – Issue 37

by John Wild

John explores the market for camera bargains and continues to be amazed at the price erosion for what were once expensive items. Good Price today may not be a good price tomorrow. Who is the greater fool?
