Out with a shitty 8MP digital camera I picked up for 5€, 6 November 2022

After getting the little #shittydigital 2MP Vivitar camera from CEX for 1€ I came across another ‘generic’ digital camera on the website. I didn’t actually know what I would be getting, but I thought that for 5€ it’s worth taking the chance and it turned out it was a Fujifilm Finepix A800 from 2007. It’sContinue reading “Out with a shitty 8MP digital camera I picked up for 5€, 6 November 2022”

Out with the 1€ #shittydigital camera, 26 October 2022

It’s #PolaroidWeek and I had one piece of Instax Monochrome loaded into my Polaroid 600. It seemed like a waste to go out and take just one photograph, so I thought I would take the little #shittydigital 2MP Vivitar camera I had picked up from CEX for 1€. The Vivitar 3695 is as simple asContinue reading “Out with the 1€ #shittydigital camera, 26 October 2022”

Stuck in a car park in Gaia, 20 June 2022

Waiting in a car park in Gaia. There was little else to do apart from bringing  out the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and the full spectrum Lumix DMC-TZ8 for some industrial infrared. 

A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022

Out for a lovely day in Porto with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  After a wet start it was perfect for some #urban and #streetphotography, or just for being a tourist.  #body, #camera, #cameras, #digital, #digitalcamera, #epl1, #mirrorless, #microfourthirds, #olympus, #olympuspen, #shittydigital, #broken, #urban, #Porto, #building, #fisheye, #kit, #lens, #lomography,Continue reading “A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022

After a test run yesterday it was time to take the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit to Aveiro.  My experiment was short-lived. After four or five nice photos, just enough to whet my appetite, the camera died. Thankfully it was just the battery and I’m all charged up for a possibleContinue reading “Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: A test run with the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit, 17 June 2022

A test run in the woods with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  First attempts at in-camera multiple exposures and image stacking (and one failed microclick ‘panorama’).

Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit

Who on earth would buy a broken mirrorless camera? I picked up this Olympus Pen E-PL1 from Kamerastore with broken image stabilization. I wasn’t looking for anything perfect but I recently discovered the Lomography Experimental Lens kit and it looks like it might be an interesting project. I’m thinking freelensing and a possible future conversionContinue reading “Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit”
