I started this blog to go along with my new hobby…finding and testing film cameras. Recently, I have been learning and trying to figure out how to fix them too. I am not very good at the moment, but I enjoy ripping things apart and trying my best. I have not returned to the UK from a stint of living in Japan. Finding junk cameras was much easier in Japan they didn’t always work, but it was fun trying.
As I am making good use of second-hand items and things other people have left behind, I call my searching wombling. As the word “womble” is probably copyrighted, I chose Camera Go Camera …actually I thought of Wombled Cameras after I made the site.
Here is where the word “womble” comes from.
Then there is the name, Camera Go Camera. That comes from a Japanese anime, “Panda Ko Panda”, the ko meaning small. On this YouTube clip the title says, “Panda Go Panda”.
At first, I intended to do the blog until a set date, the one year anniversary of my mum’s passing as I started this hobby to focus my mind away from that issue. I have written about it in a few posts.
As the date came closer I realized I was getting near to 100 camera posts. So that became the new goal…then I passed that goal. Then, I said I would finish when I ran out of free space on the blog, so I bought more….now I don’t know where or when I will stop, but I will enjoy getting there. 🙂
I have three other blogs
