Photographer: Dave Hendley

It’s always great to be able to spend time shooting and talking photography with Dave when he’s in Tokyo. Dave runs three tumblrs you ought to follow: Central St. Martins Camera Style,  rm409,  and one for his own and truly excellent personal work: davehendley.tumblr.com

Old 35mm rangefinders are known for their remarkably solid build quality and super sharp lenses, but with film and processing getting more and more expensive, using these old beauties can be costly.

UK-based photographer Ollie Baker wanted to combine the quality of old rangefinders with the convenience of digital, so he spliced together a modern Sony NEX-5 with a Konica Auto S3 from 1973.
