|I found a great deal on this camera through kijiji, and I couldn't pass it up. I also thought, what if I took this old technology, and photographed it as if it were a new iPod? Soft lighting, white background, slight reflection?|
I've been doing a lot of reading on film photography, and I may just start shooting a lot more of it. I found this camera on Kijiji (no lens, the 50mm I already had) for a steal at $50. I can now return my friend Ashley's camera once I finish up the roll of colour in it.
In all honesty, I couldn't ask for a better fit to my bag, considering that it has really similar controls and size when compared to my 5D II, and a lot of really great features. I always thought that film would be too expensive, but it just isn't anymore. Developing is expensive, sure, and film costs money. But I found a camera that costs $50. Oh yeah, and the sensor? It doesn't have one. If I'm tired of the look of one film, I just get a different one. I can't wait to get out and really start shooting with this! Expect to see more film results soon, as well as all the tidbits I learn along the way!
BTW, here's how I took the product shots above:
