My medium format, Twin Reflex camera with a waist-level viewfinder. I got this beauty from Bulgaria along with the original Lomo camera called the Smena 8M. This type of camera is where shooting from the hip originated from – an ideology that lomographers steadfastly believe in.
Simple and fun, the Sprocket Rocket exposes pictures on the sprockets of the film, which when scanned creates interesting effects. This camera is a first of it’s kind as a dedicated sprocket photography camera that only shoots panoramas. Pictures taken with this camera are 2.5 times longer than a normal photograph, which coupled with it’s simple design and minimalist functions make panoramic photos accessible to anyone.
The Work Horse. I love the photos this camera allows me to create. With a multitude of lenses, my trusty Minolta is the most versatile and least Hipsterish camera in my collection. Before the days of digital photography, SLR’s like this were operated mostly on manual mode and instant gratification had no meaning. Why did things change?
The first camera I bought, and the beginning of a downward cash-flow spiral. Four months and 14 cameras later, this champion is the reason this very blog exists. The fantastic thing about the Diana is how difficult it makes it to take a bad photo. I’ve kitted mine out with all the accessories I could need, including a Ring Flash for portrait and close-up photography, a fun fish-eye lens, a 35mm film adapter, and some other modified parts that suit my style of shooting.
Brand new never- been-used Polaroid camera. I found this gem lying around my Dad’s photography store, along with a plethora of other antiquated equipment. It’s a pity that Polaroid film is so hard to come by these days. Hopefully The Impossible Project, which aims to get Polaroid film back in circulation, brings its prices down soon so I can use this bad boy!
Note to self – MUST NOT BUY MORE CAMERAS, MUST NOT BUY MORE CAMERAS!
