Lately, computer software and phone apps have made it easy to simulate the nostalgic look of vintage photography. But these artfully old-school photography supplies don't just capture those retro images in a more authentic way, they also set them in motion.
Harking back to the earliest days of filmmaking, this camera uses 35mm film that records a series of still images that can be viewed in haunting, flickering motion. Deliberately old-fashioned, the camera records no sound and offers no instant playback. Instead, the moviemaker peeks through the viewfinder and cranks a handle to advance the film at the desired rate. The result is no digital recreation, but a spontaneous impression of a moment.
The camera uses standard 35mm film and can be handheld or camera-mounted. A clear progress meter shows you how much of the roll you have remaining, and a hot-shoe mount on top allows you to use a flash in darker settings. Simply load your film and start turning the crank to shoot--faster cranking produces smoother motion, while slower cranking allows for longer duration.
After the film has been developed, the hand-crank viewer allows you to watch your mini masterpieces in suitably lo-fi style. Or, digitize your film with the easy-to-use smart phone mount. Complete your supplies with the available 3-pack of 35mm color negative film. Camera and viewer set, smart phone adapter, and film available either individually or as a complete set. Made in China.
