My Splendid Camera - Genevieve Senekal

My Splendid Camera - Genevieve Senekal

Genevieve Senekal is a film lover, she started The Film Bank before Portra 400 was even a thing! She is also the very lucky owner of a Hasselblad Xpan, the legendary 35mm Panoramic Camera. 


Here is why Genevieve likes the Xpan:

Well, It’s certainly not the first camera I reach for… I think the reason the Xpan is my favourite camera is because it is the most difficult camera I’ve ever shot with. I don’t think there are many people out there who have perfected shooting in this format (and I have absolutely not perfected this by any stretch of the imagination.) But when you get a shot, you just know. There’s a certain cinematic quality to the frame, and the lenses are painfully sharp. I guess I like it because I have to work for the shot, and something that comes easy doesn’t quite have the same appeal.
