    I just dropped my first film roll today to a local lab and I’m waiting for
    it to get developed… I’m excited to see the results as I plan to get a
    Pentax K1000 soon! Gotta love the film look!

    On another hand, I think I just fell in love… And not precisely with film

    I use a film Slr all the time, The quality is great and I love the fact you
    can choose different films that give different looks, I also like the
    saying, “the best camera is the one you have with you” I think it’s the
    composition and subject that’s the most important thing and people tend to
    get caught up to much in mega pixels etc, I believe that even the lower
    quality film (most of which are sadly gone) have there place if used for
    the right subject, for instance, I might want to shoot a video in 4k but
    the next one I might feel super8 would be more suitable, I had been toying
    with the idea of buying a disposal and your video has really inspired me
    and you have some beautiful shots.
    Thanks x

    Just shows its not always about expensive set ups and fancy lights and
    loads of assistants and as big a possible cameras to show off. Its about
    the photographer and them being able to use any tool to make great
    pictures. A pro should be able to get great shots on a pin hole camera!

    Disposable camera? You mean it doesn’t have option for 4k?
    no 4k = no deal.

    the way a lot of these turned out reminded me of retro french fashion
    magazines, very nice

    great video and some amazing photos! just got into 35mm photography myself
    and really enjoying it so far – quite a different mindset to shooting
    digital but really worthwhile – keep up the good work! :)

    Great job you two! Lovely team 🙂 my fav. is at 2:57… Love that “shooting
    down the wall” composition, and perfect expression. How fun, this idea!
    Keep up the good work!

    the first image at 1:35 is the coolest with the light flare into the lens.
    also the background is back at a greater distance which does not distract
    from the subject. this would have been even more interesting with 10 year
    expired color film in a plastic Diana or Holga camera. nice video enjoyed
    this very much !

    ARE YOU SERIOUS??!! A camera with NO lens’ to change or twist into focus?
    NO aperture or ISO to set? NO choice of HDR or noise reduction? You mean
    we can only concentrate on things like composition or improvising our
    lighting?! As if that would help our photography in ANY way… you really
    miss the whole point of the hobby don’t you?! :))

    Seriously Im, video is enjoyable as ever – good topic/theme choice!

    Some of these are the best shots I’ve seen from you recently. Very
    refreshing. I guess it was mostly due to the different focal length. I
    would encourage you to go down the more arty route with digital photography
    as well. You can have more “feel” with digital images as well.
    Great new look too!

    In fact, there is still quite some buzz going on with the plastic film
    camera – either 35mm or 120. Although last big commercialized bang, known
    as Lomography, may be settling, you still have buoyant scene of cameras.
    There are models, resurrected to manufacture from past highlights, like
    Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim, Diana, Holga, to new designs – Diana Mini,
    Robot 3, Holga 120WPS (my favorite), etc. All these add even more of
    character to the snapshots, and result in plenty of emotion. It must be
    said, that plastic lenses on most of them provide interesting and specific
    handling of captured light.

    I was surprised by the results – some great shots. Certainly not what I
    remember getting with disposable cameras 🙂 Thanks

    It’s a real pleasure to see you every week. Good job!!!
    I had also used this type of camera in the past. It was always very exiting
    to see the result after the developpment.
    Thank you for your ideas!!!

    Imogen. Because of your enthusiastic way of showing the disposable camera I
    ordered the Kodak fun saver this week. This weekend I’m going to try
    some to take some “fun” shots with it during a shoot.
