It was a lovely sunny day today in Oiã, so it was natural to head out for a walk with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 and #Nintendo #Gameboy for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge. Just some random images around the Zon Industrial de Oiã.

A digital trichrome created using the Nintendo Gameboy and Gameboy Pocket Camera, 09 January 2023
So here it is. For the #1990sCameraChallenge #ShittyCameraChallenge a trichrome funtograph from the #GameboyCamera. I took three photographs of the same image with the Gameboy holding a red, a green and a blue filter in front of the Pocket camera lens. Once complete, I downloaded the images from the Gameboy Pocket camera using the GBContinue reading “A digital trichrome created using the Nintendo Gameboy and Gameboy Pocket Camera, 09 January 2023”

New Year’s Eve panorama with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 31 December 2022
As I was passing the window I glanced out and stopped in awe. In front of me the clouds were letting through the sun’s rays and it was spectacular. So my last post this year is a three frame panorama taken with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 floppy disk camera and stitched together with the smartphoneContinue reading “New Year’s Eve panorama with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 31 December 2022”

Late in the afternoon the sun briefly broke through a cloudy sky.
It’s #flyday Friday, 23 December 2022
It was #FlyDay last Friday, and although I meant to post then there wasn’t quite the time. This particular fly was buzzing around the kitchen and I used the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 for these super low resolution images. #fliesarebeautiful
Low resolution #CloseUp, 23 December 2022
Took the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 out on the patio and tried some close-ups in ‘macro’ mode for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge
Street photography in Oiã, 23 December 2022
Out in Oiã with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge. Just some random images around the town of Christmas decorations and the ubiquitous abandoned structures.
Some ‘Instagram’ snaps from the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 11 December 2022
Not much time to take the Sony Mavica out today as I was tasked with making the lunch. Still, there’s no harm in using a 20th century camera for 21st century social media, right?
An unusual #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 07 December 2022
I’ve been using the ‘high specification’ Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 for much of the #1990sCameraChallenge, but I thought it might be nice to see a sunrise through its more basic sibling, the MVC-FD51. Like before, I held an ND filter over the lens to take off the glare of the rising sun. This time, though, instead ofContinue reading “An unusual #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 07 December 2022”
A #ShittyCameraChallenge sunrise, 03 December 2022
After the file error on the first day of the #1990sCameraChallenge and sleeping through the sunrise yesterday, this morning I was determined to catch the sunrise before the rain returns. Taken with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. An ND4 filter was held over the lens to take off the glare of the rising sun.
The sun sets on the first day of the Shitty Camera Challenge, 01 December 2022
After a shaky start to the #1990sCameraChallenge when my glorious sunrise ended up as a ‘file error’ I wanted to see how the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 would perform with a sunset. Not too shabby, I have to say.
First day of the Shitty Camera Challenge #1990sCameraChallenge, 01 December 2022
The #ShittyCameraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge started on 01 December and ends 31 January 2023. It’s a celebration of cameras introduced between 1990 and1999 and the idea is to take images with film and early digital cameras an post them online.

Lo-Fi: The Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 04 November 2022
As well as the MVC-FD51 for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge I now have an MVC-FD81. Although it was launched in 1998, the same year as the MVC-FD51, it features an enhanced resolution of 1MP and a faster floppy disk drive than its predecessor. Like the MVC-FD51 it was fun to use. I took a short walkContinue reading “Lo-Fi: The Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 04 November 2022”
Lo-Fi: A ‘test roll’ in the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 04 November 2022
Running from 01 December 2022 to 31 January 2023, the latest #ShittyCameraChallenge will feature cameras from the 1990s. I already have two analogue cameras to use in the challenge, a Canon Epoca 135 and a Samsung Fino 35s point and shoot, but the 90s were when digital cameras started to appear in the consumer marketplaceContinue reading “Lo-Fi: A ‘test roll’ in the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51, 04 November 2022”
