It happens almost every time I scan some film. I look at my developed film on the computer and think, "That's a pretty cool shot. I wonder what my settings were?" Shooting film is amazing, but sometimes it becomes a pain in the rump to remember what you were doing when you shot a specific photograph, since there are no digital markers to log your work for you. Enter: Photomemo. It's a small, lightweight logbook that's specifically tailored to be a film shooter's friend.
About the size of a small journal, these logbook pages are labeled specifically with spots for roll number, camera used, lens used, film used, ISO, and other useful facts, as well as space to make your own notes and drawings. Although there are products out there that are similar, I haven't seen many this portable and at this price point. At $9.99 for two books, it's reasonable enough to be within reach of most photographers out there without breaking the bank. There's room in each book for notes for about 20 rolls of 35mm film.
One of the things I most appreciate about Shootfilmco.com is that they are really passionate about shooting film and about the community that surrounds film shooters. They went out of their way to make a simple product that gets the job done without being overly expensive while still being made from materials that will stand up to some abuse. If you have a moment, check out the accompanying videos -- especially the behind-the-scenes on how the books are made. You really get a sense of the passion of Mike, the creator of the books. I definitely appreciate his journey of creating something he saw a need for and following through to the end. We should all be so committed to our ideas!
