#FridayFiction 100 Word Challenge: Cursed Camera?

Old School Film Camera

Lucy is baffled by Alex aversion of her favorite film camera purchased from Curious Goods.

“You don’t flinch when I use the Canon 1DX M2 or my iPhone. Do you have a history with this camera I should know about?”

Alex side-eyed Lucy before returning his attention to a musty looking book.

“You really believe this film camera steals souls but apparently not the iPhone.” Lucy quipped sarcastically.

“O ye of little faith.” Alex sighed rather cryptically.

Lucy rolled her eyes, deciding now was not the time to share the photos she took of him with this ‘cursed’ camera.



This week’s Friday Fiction is heavily influenced by the recent camera releases from Canon and Nikon. Canon recently released an updated version of their flagship full frame camera – EOS 1DX Mark2. I’ve embedded a good first look video review of this camera for your perusal.

Canon EOS 1D X Mark2 First Look:


Great oogily-booglily, this is a fine camera! Of course it comes with a commensurate price tag of US$ 6,0000 (body only). A bit out of my price range at the moment. If I can’t have it then one of my characters will have the pleasure of owning it.

So far, I’m happy with the photos captured with the Canon 7D M2. Most of the photos included in the Friday Fiction series have been taken with the 7DM2. I’m looking to expand into either medium format or full frame dSLR sometime in the future.

Happy reading AND happy snapping!
