My Dad was an avid photographer. Over his years he picked up quite a few cameras. After he passed a couple of years ago I was given several of his cameras. One was a cheapo Time Rangefinder I found in a box of camera equipment. This was the type of camera you received as a free gift when you subscribed to Time Magazine. An extremely cheap point & shoot. All plastic rangefinder. Load, point, set the aperture ring on the lens & shoot.
I recently took it out and shot a roll through it and as expected the results were....hmmm, how do I say this? "Poor", yep that's the word. But you know, it has toy camera written all over it, and at the time I bet there were thousands out there.
Here is a picture I took recently on a cloudy day along Washington Street in Indianapolis. The cool thing is that this was one of my Dad's cameras so I'll hang on to it, and write a formal post soon.
They are very lomo, I have a few that are generically called "optical 50mm color lens" cameras. One is kinda funky because the film doesn't stay fully flat and gets a blurred vignette.ReplyDelete
