We last featured the Impossible I-1 camera during our trip to Little India when Deepavali was being celebrated! Since then, we have come to appreciate a nifty function of the I-1 camera which many Polaroid cameras do not have: a double exposure function! Indeed, we were also keen to explore the potential of the I-1 camera further, and so we took it out one day to try out some of our favourite double exposures with the Impossible White Round Frame monochrome film (Gen 2.0) (we used a pack which was expired). We wish to highlight that the I-1 camera can be manually controlled using the I-1 mobile application (“App”), and that has to be used to take double exposure instant films.
Some keen-eyed readers may have noticed that despite featuring many cameras so far, the Holga camera has never been featured in our website. To be honest, we did not own one (till now); we acknowledge that the Holga is a timeless classic camera which helped revitalise the interest of street/film photography in Asia (and beyond) since the early 1980s.
In September 2016, Fujifilm announced the release of their latest instax mini film product: the Fujifilm instax mini Monochrome film (“Monochrome film”)!
As there are many reviews floating around about this new product, we thought that we would get the film and write about our first impressions about using this film. Further, we have noted how different cameras and developers affect how the chemical spread and the ‘colour’ shown on the film. We should also mention that this entry is not a review; rather, it is an exposition of our snapshots and results!
Every since Leica had announced their entry into the instant photography market by producing their version of an instant camera, the Leica Sofort, we were intrigued by the specifications and the functions of their camera because the specifications are quite similar to the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 NEO Classic (“Fujifilm NEO Classic”)! We would love to have a hands on experience with the Leica Sofort, but first, we decided to pen down our thoughts on the features available in the Fujifilm NEO Classic!
We should emphasise that this is purely our own opinion and we hope to provide an objective review that covers the good and bad of the camera. That being said, we do love instant film photography, so it can be hard to truly call any instant film camera a disaster!
This week we decided to kick back, relax and share with our readers some of our favourite photos taken with our Polaroid Spectra ImagePro! You may have seen some of them on our Instagram, but here, we also detail the work that goes into these Polaroids!
This week, we discuss about one of our favourite cameras (I know, we have so many favourite ones); the Polaroid Land Camera! People have been asking us about our newest addition(s), so we decided to share our perspective and thoughts on the old-fashioned but fully-functioning instant Polaroid camera!
Many of our close friends know that we have a keen interest in film cameras! Our initial knowledge and exposure (pun intended eh heh) of film cameras was the Holga Camera (notwithstanding those disposable film cameras we grew up using). While researching online about the different types of Holga cameras, we stumbled upon a variety of Holga accessories, including Holga lenses for DSLRs cameras and iPhones, phone apps mimicking Holga effects, Holga lenses for Fuji Instax cameras, DIGITAL Holga cameras and even “Holgaroids” (Instant Film backing with Holga cameras).
