The Camera Collection

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

I realised, that although I’ve mentioned our huge camera collection I’ve not posted a picture of the lot. I thought you might want to see them all together.

The camera collection

We’ve got more since taking this about six months ago, I wish we had room to display them all but there is only room for a select few on our shelves.

Fujifilm Instax 200

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

I *love* instant film. It’s always magical to have a photo develop infront of your eyes. Having a physical photograph that you can stick on your wall, give to a friend or put in an album is great too. With digital I end up with so few printed photographs, everything is on the computer.

This is my Fuji Instax camera, it takes the Fujifilm Instax Instant Film which is easy to get hold of. The negative thing about it is that it’s huge! It’s so bulky and I don’t take it out as much as I would like because of that. I am tempted to get one of the smaller Instax cameras that are more handbag sized.

I got this, and a lot of my other cameras, at a carboot sale. They’re great places for picking up stuff like this for next to nothing. I think this one cost a couple of pounds.

The colours are great, so deep and bright. Some instant films tend to look faded but this stuff is lovely. I have just loaded it with some very old expired film so I expect that might have lost some of it’s colour over time. I’ll post the results soon.

Supersampler

20110809-SS (3)

This week I thought I’d share with you one of the more ‘novelty’ type of cameras that we have. The SuperSampler takes four photos over two seconds to create a 4 frames within one photograph. You can also change the settings so it takes all the photos in 0.2 seconds but I never use that setting as the results aren’t so interesting. The camera has a fixed shutterspeed so you can only use it in good light. I used Fuji Sensia 200 film in it for these photos and had it cross-processed.

You get different effects if you move the camera as it’s taking the photos,

compared with keeping the camera still.

Mostly this camera is great for being silly with!

Lomo LC-A

The LC-A cameras are by far the best of the Lomography range. This is the LC-A, you can also get an LC-A+, LC-M and LC-Wide (of which Daz has at least one of each!)

The best results are when you use slide film and get it cross processed in normal colour film chemicals. The results are great colours and contrast. The film I used in these photos is Kodak Ektachrome and developed at Photographique.

Here are some of the photos I took last week when we went for a wander around the harbour.
