I bought my Widelux F8 10 years ago from my friend Jose. For some reason I stopped shooting with it about 3 years ago. This summer, I retrieved it from one of my camera bags and started to shoot with it again. I like shooting TMAX 3200 with this camera; I have a lot more flexibility when I use this film, plus I love the grain of it. Whenever I have the Widelux on me people are transfixed- not only with the way the camera looks, but with the movement of the lens.

Jeff Bridges has a wonderful book of his Widelux photos and a fantastic link on his website about how to care for the camera.

Below is a photo I  took at the Dutchess County Fair, leaving the George Jones concert.
