Englewood Camera’s newest lab employee!

leave a comment »

Meet our newest member to the Englewood Camera team, lab technician Jenna Schlapkohl! On a spontaneous whim, Jenna recently moved to Colorado from the midwest. She grew up in South Dakota and spent the past 4 years living in Minnesota where she attended the University of Minnesota, Mankato. Having found her passion for photography in high school, she graduated with a degree in Mass Media and a minor in Art, focusing on Photography. Eventually she hopes to pursue a career in Photojournalism, but is now enjoying her time as a Lab Tech for Englewood Camera and as a Youth Sports Photographer for YSPN Photography. In her free time she enjoys attending concerts, reading and is currently trying to take up hiking.

Jenna is with us part time, and may be the one printing your photos or developing your film! Say hello next time you’re in!

Throwback Thursday: cool finds at the store

leave a comment »

Englewood Camera has lots of cool old stuff. Have you ever been invited to our back room? Not for the faint of heart, our back room offers a plethora of odds and ends, and we have many a buyer wanting to explore the depths of miscellaneous camera goodies!

One of our latest finds belongs to a Minolta-16 MG- a very cool sub-miniature camera that launched in 1966. This camera shoots with 16mm film, offering a frame size of 10x14mm! While this kit is no longer in our possession (sniff), we managed to snag some shots of the cool paper goodies included with it from 1971.

A fishy engagement…caught with a Fuji X-T1

with 2 comments

Englewood Camera customer Doug Garvey decided to invest in the Fujifilm X-Series system back in June 2014. As an avid fly fisher, and travel/class coordinator for Anglers All, Doug needed a camera that is lightweight, high quality, and weather proof for his fishing excursions, so he snagged an X-T1 and a few lenses to document nature and his passion for fishing. His new found love for photography, combined with his love of fishing, sparked a proposal idea. Doug’s girlfriend, Corrine, had been interested in a fly rod to use as decor in their apartment, so he set to work over this past summer to create the perfect fly rod to use in his marriage proposal, and decided to document the entire moment with his Fuji X-T1.
