12 Pocket cameras, 12 films in 12 months: One of the photography projects I set myself for 2022 was to take one photo a day with a different pocket camera for each month of the year loaded with a different film each time. I’m defining “pocket camera” as simply that, a camera that will fit in your pocket regardless of type. With 3 ratings, Excellent for a camera that would fit easily into any small pocket. “Good” for slightly larger cameras that probably won't fit in a small trouser pocket but would fit into a shirt or jacket pocket. Finally “Fair” for cameras that would need a coat pocket & can barely be defined as pocket cameras but were marketed that way when they were released.

For March I shot the Nikon One Touch AF3 loaded with some 2019 expired Agfa Vista Plus 200 (This vintage of Agfa Vista may in fact be Fuji film). The AF3 was the third version of the original L35 camera which was Nikon’s first autofocus point & shoot. The lens was simplified from 5 to 4 elements in this version but gained a pseudo Macro function with a closer focusing distance of 45cm. The batteries also changed from 2 double AAs to a Lithium CR P2 6V. While much more expensive they were said to be good for 5 years or 50 rolls of film.
