I was browsing the Kamerastore website recently, as you do, and came across an unusual looking camera, the Ricoh Auto Half E2. In the photograph on the site there was a large wheel on the bottom. At first I thought that this was something that the Kamerastore had used to balance the camera, but thenContinue reading “The Ricoh Auto Half E2: It’s clockwork, 08 May 2023”

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”
Everyday abstracts, 02 January 2023
Some random abstracts and close-up images with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 floppy disk camera.
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”
Cloudscapes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 27 December 2023
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
More dull trichromes of the roundabout outside our house, 09 December 2022
After the fun yesterday with the Sony Cybershot DSC-P73, I thought it might be nice to try some #ShittyDigital trichromes of the roundabout with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. It was another very dull day, but one day, I know, I’ll get a lovely trichrome blue sky.
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.
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”
#OldCameraChallenge, the Ikko Sha Start 35k
I picked up a new camera recently, the Ikko Sha Start 35k. It was completely an impulse buy from Kamerastore, it’s not a camera I have ever heard of before and I could find very little about it online—and in a way that was part of the appeal. I just saw it and thought, ‘IContinue reading “#OldCameraChallenge, the Ikko Sha Start 35k”
Lo-fi photography: microclick panoramas, 22 March 2022
Microclick panoramas are also known as Holgaramas as they have commonly been produced with the Holga plastic lens ‘toy’ cameras. Simply, the film advance of the Holga is manual, and each time it is turned it issues a little ‘click’. After taking a photograph, instead of winding on to the next frame another photograph canContinue reading “Lo-fi photography: microclick panoramas, 22 March 2022”
Contrails with the #shittydigital PSP, 20 February 2022
Took the #shittydigital PSP outside to record a couple of jets that were passing overhead. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2022/02/a-close-pass-by-20-february-2022.html
#shittycamerachallenge — Afternoon in the park, 7 January 2022
Finally have the images back from our afternoon in the park with Diana F+ for the #ShittyCameraChallenge. My attempts at image stacking were a dismal failure, mind.
#shittycamerachallenge — A visit to the Praia da Barra, 19 January 2022
It’s taken a while to get the film developed, but it was an enjoyable #shittycamerachallenge day at the beach with the Diana F+. One thing is certain; with all these light leaks next time I go out I need to start taping up the body of the camera before heading out.

An enjoyable day at the beach with the Diana F +. Also took the #shittydigital #PSP along for some beach and streetphotography.
The #OldCameraChallenge, 17 December 2021
The Kamerastore Outlet Box provided an almost instant collection of vintage cameras in various states of repair, some in perfect working order, some near to or not functioning, but all needing a good clean and renovation. Dating from the 1920s to the 1950s or 60s, many of the cameras have been treated poorly over theContinue reading “The #OldCameraChallenge, 17 December 2021”
The Kamerastore Outlet Box, 14 December 2021
After years trying to make perfectly focussed and nicely exposed photographs, I’ve recently been looking to a simpler time; when photographs were out of focus, camera movement was the norm and light leaks were a feature, not a bug. Looking around for a simple camera I originally bought a second-hand Polaroid 600, but the extortionateContinue reading “The Kamerastore Outlet Box, 14 December 2021”
