Excerpted from ToyCamera.com:
cool. i got an old spartus camera that i think fits this definition. it is plastic with no controls, just a basic "INST" shutter button.
I had no idea you did that kind of thing!
yup! i am in. i will be in yellowstone that day so i will see what i get
Soo who's doing this and what are they doing it with?
I feel so bad for this forum because it's just not feisty enough sometimes.
I found a toy camera which belongs to my daughter yesterday. Unfortunately, it's one which squirts water when you press the shutter!
Thanks Art! I almost forgot! Bringing out the Holga.
I hope I can go to Toronto to shoot!
Now you just need to glue it onto your camera and start taking pictures of surprised people
Maybe it is time I tried out the Diana camera I bought last year at a thrift shop (was marked $1, but they sold it to me for $0.75).
You got a killer deal there!
I think I did. Now, it seems to be missing a chrome band around the lens, so it is not of high "collectible" quality, but the shutter works and it has got the three f/stops (sunny, partly sunny and cloudy...or "dull"!) and even focusing zones...pretty impressive!
Time to burn a roll of the cheap Chech film!
Rules are rules, but I never really understood the plastic requirement.
I always thought the mutant cameras I put together from parts were toys...
Happy Toy Camera Day!!!!!!! Go out there and shoot
Murray - things I thought were toy cameras are being poopooed by the toycamera crowd Sometimes I think they're more snobby than the hassy/leicia crowd!
Yeah, I wondered about that. I have a little gizmo that I certainly consider a toy, but it's made of metal! Of course, I'd probably have to slit larger film to use it which is way too much trouble anyway.
And my Brownie Target 620 is cardboard and wood -- but then, perhaps its performance is considered too good to be a toy.
I was on a trip to Thessaloniki (town in Northern Greece) and spent the whlole day Saturday for the WWTCD. Had to find one, browsed through all the toy shops and all I found was the WinX camera (25 euro for the camera, one WinX film with 12 shots, a plastic WinX frame for one small picture and a WinX photo album !!!! I got ripped !!!!!!)...
I shot the WinX film, two ekta 64 T (that are also going to be developed in C-41) and a duplicating film (SO-279). Waiting for the results.... hope there's going to be some shots worth the effort...
Missed it. I platinum printed from 8pm on Friday until 9am on Saturday -- and the rest of Saturday sort of slipped away from me.
Mine are all toys.
I gave Dianas to my two kids (6 and 3) then we walked around on a photo safari. My 3 year old lasted about 4-5 shots and wanted to go home, but the 6 year old was really into it. I helped wind and set the "distance" scale and the kids did the rest.
I hope to develop tonight and make prints on the weekend.
Aww! That sounds lovely, Alan. Makes me wonder about getting a holga or something for my nieces and have their parents send us the films to develop and print. The gift that keeps on giving
I finally made prints!
I printed this weekend and posted in the standard gallery.
