Like many photographers, I’m a connoisseur of old, analogue cameras. Sure, many of them don’t work and others can’t be shot due to the film stock no longer being produced, but there are a dozen or so that I continually cycle through when I go on a random film spree.

Something I haven’t yet done with my cameras is review them, much like I have with a few digital cameras over the past few years. Thankfully, Ade Torrent, a man behind a YouTube channel appropriately titled ‘Old Cameras’ is doing that which I have not; review old, analogue cameras one by one and share them online for the world to see.

‘Old Cameras’ has dozens of camera reviews, each of which dives into the history of the camera, how it operates and many times, what the results are of a roll of film shot through the camera.

From medium format to toy cameras, Torrent covers the entire spectrum. below are a collection of videos from his channel:
