Film Photographer's PhotoMemo Book - TWINPACK
The Film Photographer's PhotoMemo Book is one of the most useful items you can have in your camera bag. Each double-page spread is designed to give you all the space and prompts that you need to make notes on a single roll of film: brand and type, ISO, exposure settings, which camera you used, what you wanted to achieve.
This means that when the film comes back from developing you have the perfect comparison to learn and improve in your film photography! What you liked, what worked, and also what didn't.
The twinpack has two books enclosed for twice the analogue adventuring.
The PhotoMemo Book is one of the amazing designs we have sourced from our friend Mike over at ShootFilmCo. Read our interview with him here!
The twinpack contains two separate PhotoMemo Books. Each book is 48 pages = room for notes on 23 separate rolls of film.
Cover: 100 lb. Neenah ENVIRONMENT Desert Storm (30% post consumer fiber). Interior: 60 lb. Finch Opaque Smooth Text (acid-free, archival quality).
I bought these on a whim but am so glad I did. I'm still only scribbling my way through my first one but it is coming in so handy - especially when trying out new films. Perfect size for slipping into a pocket and well layed-out inside with two pages for each film.
Highly recommended to have in your camera bag.
Such a simple idea, yet so so useful.
Each double page spread gives you a pre laid out form to list any details that you need to remember from a roll of film. For example the date, the film stock, the camera used, did you push or pull? the subject, the ISO...
Under that you can then write whatever notes you like to help you remember the things that you just know you're gonna forget. I personally use mine extensively for pinhole. The camera and film combo. The metered exposure time. The subject...
Yes I could use a notes app on my phone, but this sits in my camera bag, with me knowing that its not going to randomly corrupt, crash, or anything stupid like that.
Highly, highly recommended.
Oh and at £10 for a pack of two, why wouldn't you at least try them?!
This is great for when you’re out and about shooting, it’s small and thin enough to slide into your bag!
This is a good idea but I don't know who came up with the pale green ink on white paper. It's difficult to make out and defeats the purpose. My own designed black ink on white card film cassette cards are much better, with 35mm on one side and 120 on the other. They are invidual which I file with the negatives and contact sheet.
I Remember amateur photographer magazine selling these back in the eighties when i first started using SLR cameras a Ricoh KR10 these have been very useful to document film, times image number etc etc ,it was sad to see them go but so glad that they are back as they are a great way to learn and duplicate shots taken i use mine mainly for 4x5 or studio work and they look great, compact and fits into my side bag a treat.
