Another city shot taken with my Jazz 207 Jelly camera. It’s rapidly becoming my favorite toy camera. Again.
And, my original Jazz post is now #3 on Google searches for “Jazz Jelly”!
Shot with a Jazz Jelly 207, fairly high-tech as plastic cameras go. Integral lens cover, built-in flash, small enough to fit in your pocket. Classic plastic wide-angle lensed-goodness, fixed shutter speed. Shoot ISO 200 speed film outdoors. Flash is good for 10 feet if you’re lucky (and shooting ISO 400 speed film).
This roll came out with a Matrix-like green cast.
Another WTF moment walking around San Francisco. Sutro Tower, Magnum, the Bay bridge and Abe Lincoln FTW!
Recently, I’ve been shot most of my street candids portrait-style. I don’t know where this is coming from, maybe I should buy a square-frame medium format camera to cure myself of this? Or am I just looking for an excuse to buy a Holga, Diana or a Lubitel?
Does anyone have a favorite, obscure medium format toy camera I don’t know about? Let me know.
I took this picture with a Aiptek Pencam SD, a camera I liken to the Digital Harinezumi. The Pencam SD is roughly the same size, and does 1280×960 max resolution (still), and 6-8 frames per second at 640×480. Like the Digital Harinezumi, the Pencam SD has 64MB of built-in memory and an SD card slot. Instead of an expensive CR2 battery, the Pencam SD uses AAA batteries – I have a stack of rechargeable AAAs at home.
Unlike the DH, the Aiptek is less than $20.
Is this a “Digital Holga”? Probably not, while it can vignette, it can take impressively sharp pictures in the right light.
Is the viewfinder a best guesstimate of the image area? Definitely.
Is it fun to shoot with? Extremely – I prefer not being able to see the photo until after I get home.
Being able to record sound with the Digital Harinezumi 2 would be interesting, but I really like the effects people have created by adding soundtracks to silent video created with the original Digital Harinezumi.
I went out shooting with a Vivitar PN2011, a 35mm panoramic plastic camera. This is probably my favorite plastic camera to date, but I don’t know why. I think it’s big enough, the lens is wide enough, it feels sturdy enough and it’s got a lens cover to protect that $1.00 piece of plastic. They’re cheap and plentiful, too.
Chromatic aberration? Pincushin distortion? Vignetting? Must be a Jazz Jelly!
Shot with generic 200 ISO $.99 store film.
