A self-help group for terrible cameras and the people who love them. Let's talk plastic fantastic to large format, as long as it shoots film and has that certain something.

 

Recent flea market fine was this very early (1937?) model Rollei…I couldn’t wait to shoot it and I was not disappointed. I couldn’t even wait to clean up the viewfinder properly, so I was suprised how nice the focus was. A pleasure to hold, this camera. Came with a case and a manual.

Year of the Horse festival, shot on this Yashica A. Every time I have one of these cameras, I’m surprised by how great they are. Love it.

Shot mostly on Super 8, with digital mixed in and blended with film textures. Can you tell what’s what?

       Video is Princess Pangolin’s “Spiral Suit.”

Today’s pelican neck brought to you by the letter “S” backwards. At Redondo Beach pier. Shot with an old 1970s manual Vivitar lens screwed to a Nikon D70 body. This has been my favorite way to shoot lately.

The neighbor’s calla lilies are blooming. Striking floral geometry. I picked up this old vivitar macro lens at an estate sale and I’ve been shooting it every free moment using my D70 body. Pleasantly surprised with the results I’m getting.

Taken with expire Cool and old Silver Shade impossible project film, on a Polaroid Sun 600. I love this camera! It’s broken in a really nice way…shoots the picture out real slow so I have plenty of time to shade them from the light.

Polaroid time: Took some Dia de los Muertos photos down at Los Angeles’ Olvera St. today. Saw everything from the macabre to the poignant on display through creativity and color. Using Impossible Project’s “Cool” 600 film.
