    I saw this the other day and read through their site. Fun and funky I dig it, but really for the lomo aesthetic, plastic lens with a decent amount of blur so the pixels dont show up. interesting paper size by ilford too. I think something like this would be ripe for simple mods as well, like putting a regular lamp head on it for negatives. Color phone screens could be used to adjust contrast grades, maybe even selectively color in areas using the touch screen, and expose in one shot to get localized variable contrast without dodge/burn/masks.

    Ive done some experimental contact printing from my phone screen awhile ago. I did it with selecting an image, setting the brightness way down, putting a black sheet of paper under the screen, and then the black and white photo paper under that paper. Pull out the black sheet from under the screen, expose, and click off the phone screen but the power button. Didnt get the detail I thought it might make (maybe because of my phone case), but interesting for photograms though.

    I think it's a great idea because it gets the photographer's hands wet and more involved in the process. Dodging and burning is not a tool in the Photoshop palette. I do use Iphones and shoot digital also. But I prefer film.

    Not to take this off-subject (and into the forbidden zone for this site) but I think you need to read up more on PS ;-)



    I agree that this can only be a good thing if it lets more people experience The Magic.

    But first I have to figure out if my photo is "Sponge worthy" now.

    Does it have the necessary "cat hair removal tool"?

    This is actually rather clever!

    Plus, I am now possessed of an unstoppable urge to (gently!) cram my Nexus 7 into the 23C-II's negative stage for no good reason other than just to see what happens.

    I want to see the contact print version of it. But for me personally, smartphones aren't good for anything except skipping over a pond like a
    rock. Muggers seem fond of acquiring them and might therefore be the best candidates for a printing device like this.

    You're just cheerful as a daisy, aren't you?

    I think this gadget is a pretty cool way of introducing people to the magic of the darkroom. Whether the prints are super excellent or not is probably immaterial. It's supposed to be a fun way of making prints.
