We are big fans of the Rescued Film Project, an amazing online gallery of lost and forgotten unprocessed film from around the world. For his latest project, founder and film technician Levi Bettwieser needs some financial help to process and restore some 1200 rolls of film shot by one photographer in the 1950s.

The Rescued Film Project is an amazing online gallery of images that were captured on film between the 1930's and late 1990's. The fascinating and poignant video below chronicles the discovery and restoration of 31 rolls of undeveloped film shot by an American solidier during World War II. When you see the resulting photos, prepare to be stunned.

It’s been called “the longest running SLR in history” and that’s no exaggeration. Everyone who discovered photography at the same time I did – the early 1980s – either owned a Pentax K1000 or knew someone who owned a Pentax K1000.

Photographers tend to be gear freaks and many of us regularly scour Craigslist and eBay for rare vintage items and the occasional bargain on current equipment. Where Craigslist really rules is on items that are simply to big or heavy to ship—like this military spec portable darkroom located in Hillsborough, NC outside of Raleigh.

During the coming year, the means we’ll use to capture photographs may change but not the motivation to share our view of the world with others. To accomplish this goal we need tools to change the way we see that world and interact with it. Imagine handing an iPhone to Alexander Graham Bell. What would he think of it? The future of imaging includes many paradigm-shifting technologies such as robotics and artificial intelligence but in the short run, we’ll deal with trends.
