    Just for fun!

    Okay, back in 1988, what were you using for:
    (1) Top most-used camera?
    (2) Top most-used color film?
    (3) Top most-used paper?
    (4) B&W enlarger w/ color pack, dichro color enlarger, or somethine else? - Bonus points if you can you remember the model!


    If 1988's too specific, we can just say "the 1980s". :-)
    (1) Nikon F3HP purchased new in 1983, I still own and use this camera.
    (2) Kodachrome 64 Professional color transparency film - a great film!
    (3) Slides processed by Kodak Laboratories.
    (4) Did not own, or use, an enlarger.

    I began 1988 with a cheap 35mm camera (don't remember the brand, except that it sounded Japanese or Chinese) with a single shutter speed (1/125 sec) and 4 apertures (16,11,8, and 6). I shot mostly Ektachrome 200. By the end of 1988 I was using ECN 5247 and 5294 and having slides made from the negatives. The camera had also been upgraded to a Pentax ME Super.

    Prints were more expensive than slides, and I was a student (High School until June, then College in August) then so lower prices were more important to me then than they are now (must still live within a budget!) I love the look of a projected slide!!
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    Minolta 110 underwater camera. It was an ugly yellow thing my dad bought me back in the early 80s. A few years later and I bought a Nikon N4004s.

    I bought the cheapest Kodak film I could find.

    Sounds like Minolta was selling a lot of cameras back then. that's right I remember Minolta was a strong player when I was that young. whatever happened to them ? today Nikon and Canon seem to be the only on top.

    Kodachrome 25 or 64 usually.

    That's an incomplete picture...

    Minolta failed somehow, and years later Sony bought their system so Sony cameras can use Minolta lenses to an extent.

    Early 80's to about 1987(ish)
    Kodak X15F instamatic
    Kodacolor II 126 cartridges and
    York brand film that I would purchase when I sent off to York for processing.

    Around '87 I got a Sears 35mm point and shoot camera that would allow me to choose film speed, 100,200,400,800, and 1000. The film was again York brand, it was really cheap when I purchased it through them when I processed my film there.

    In color, generally I was shooting my Canon "New" F-1 and in 1989 I had my first medium format camera--a Pentacon 6 that I bought used with four lenses in Poland when the black-market value of the zloty against the dollar was about 10,000:1 and these cameras weren't so interesting outside of Eastern Europe. I usually shot Kodachrome 25 in 35mm when I could and Agfachrome 100 in both formats. Agfachrome 100 of that era printed beautifully onto Cibachrome without masking.
