I am going to admit it… As easy and cool as digital photography is, I really miss old school film cameras. There was something special about snapping a picture and hoping it would come out. There was nothing like the anticipation of seeing what shots you got on your vacation after it was all over.
Some purists will say that there film photographer is superior to digital in an aesthetic way. But we just miss loading the film and being mindful of how many pictures we had left on a roll to make sure we took pictures of only the important stuff.
Anyway, I was thrilled to come across Four Corner Store, a website dedicated to “all things toy camera.” On Four Corner Store you can find all sorts of fun cameras, mostly plastic film cameras that will make you feel nostalgic. Check out the Blackbird, Fly 35mm TLR in Blue – very cool. You can also find all sorts of accessories including film.
I was particular happy to see the 110 film cameras – I had totally forgotten about 110 film. My very first camera when I was in first grade back in the, ahem, 1970’s was a tiny 110 camera. Now only if I could find a Flip Flash… Does anyone else remember the Flip Flash?
