you've seen my pics
what camera would you suggest to Kons?
27 Mar 2006, 20:31
Hello Kons! How on earth are you? If you're still into B+W I'd suggest a camera that gets some nice effects with that – the best vintage camera around for b+w in my opinion is the Zenit but they're pretty tricky to get hold of – try ebay. Otherwise, any chunky kind of old SLR like a Praktica (which I've used before and am quite a fan of). If you have a few spare £££ though, the LCA is the absolute dream - available on lomography.com and ebay. I'd stick with 35mm, it's much less of a hassle to obtain and develop - but if you want to try 120 then the Holga, Diane, or a Bakelite camera are all nice. And apparently this is the best place for developing: link

your pics are ace, Eim, there is one in particular I like from New Yawk, a shot of fire escapes on the facade of a brownstone…!
Yay, I'm still a B+W boy, however, I do wanna experiment with colour… but colour with… character..? Digital is sooo boring I think and too… perfect, don't you reckon?
The Holga pics have such a cool quality..!
There's a shop near the British Museum that sells second hand manuals, I think I'm gonna visit it soon… :-)
sooo many things to take pics of here in London…

They are indeed ace pics-look like they're straight outa the 70's!
What are you up to at the mo, Eim? you gonna be in Leam anytime tomorrow? wanna go grab a coffee or something?

i like seeing that other people use a holga. it's imperfections have such beauty considered they are the result of a cheap, inconsistent plastic lens. and let's not forget those damned light leaks. but for those moody shots, theres nothing better. i like my 70's sears slr, i mean, it's no different from any other mid-priced slr from those days, but it's mine and special.
