List of my cameras so far:

Holga 120N

Holga 120N

Holga 120N. This was the first camera I got that got me back into taking pictures with film. My wife Pamela got it for me for my first Father’s Day. I truly love taking pictures with this camera. It has so much character. The only drawback is the film. It’s not cheap, you only get 12 shots per roll (shooting squares) and it costs me $12.80 per roll to develop.

Holga 135

Holga 135

Holga 135. I received this camera as a birthday gift. I had hoped to save some money and still get the results I got from my 120 Holga. It was not to be. This camera uses 35mm film and works the same as the 120 version. I can save money on film, I get up to 35 shots per roll and developing is as easy as your local drugstore. However, this camera lacks the character of it’s 120 version. I still got some good pictures but, it’s just not the same.

ColorSplash Chakra

ColorSplash Chakra

ColorSplash Chakra. I grabbed this camera for $1 on eBay. It’s a pretty good point and shoot 35mm and the colorsplashing is a cool idea and probably works great in darker situations. It’s a fun camera but, more of a one trick pony. I gave it away to a friend.

SuperSampler

SuperSampler

Supersampler: Mine is actually Blue. This camera was a gift from my dad. It’s pretty cool. For some reason it kept jamming, which made me rewind the film and try shoot again. I ended up with some really cool pictures.

Pinhole Camera Kit

Pinhole Camera Kit

Pinhole Camera Kit: Mine actually has a dinosaur sticker on it. I got this as a birthday gift from my in-laws. I had a good time putting it together and had fun taking pictures. However, the results were not so good in my opinion. I’ll need to take it out again.

Belomo Vilia Manual

Belomo Vilia Manual

Belomo Vilia Manual: Mine has an inscription on it if you can read Russian. This is a cool Russian camera. I got this one from 4 corner camera store. It’s a step forward for me in terms of taking pictures. Unlike the cameras above this is a fully manual camera where I have control of the aperture and shutter speed. This allows me to take photos in many more situations where the holga and other cameras wouldn’t work.

Sad news: My Belomo Vilia died this morning. I tried loading film and the film advance was broken… So sad. The Belomo had won the battle against the Smena Symbol. I like the color quality of the Belomo over the Smena but, with this new turn of events the Smena will be the camera I carry on a daily basis. Rest in Peace my Belomo.

Smena Symbol

Smena Symbol

Smena Symbol, another Russian camera I got from 4 corner camera store. It is completely manual like the Belomo Vilia and actually has one more shutter speed setting. I am using this camera now and will be sending my film for developing soon. It’s basically a fight between the Belomo Vilia and the Smena Symbol for the camera I will be carring with me everyday.
