Thanks, AgX.To give you two examples:
Agfa Isola 1
meniscus lens , 3 focus settings , B & M , 2 stops , PC
Agfa Isola 2
triplet lens , continuous focusing , B, 1/30, 1/100 , F6.3, F11 , PC
Both got transport and cocking coupled, with anti-doubleexposure feature. Release on body, telescopic lens.
Would you say when a lo-fi photographer wants a bit more control and image quality, they use a non lo-fi camera because better quality lo-fi cameras don't exist?
Also check out the work of Troyce Hoffman. He's made some incredible landscape images with a Holga:Juan, it might be helpful to look at some really good work done by professional photographers using a lo-fi camera, in this case the $40 Holga 120n. Search for ‘David Burnett, Holga photos’ and ‘Michael Kenna, Holga photos’.
These will show what is possible with this type of camera, but obviously working within the limitations of such a type.
All the photos are taken with Kodak Tri-X film with a red filter that is then push processed to ISO 1600, this combination I feel creates a very dramatic effect that conveys the raw and unforgiving nature of the land.
Back when I was in art school one of my teachers called it “point and pray” photography.
