Wednesday Wish-list: Camera Love

I am really swooning over these unique cameras below. I am hoping to add some of these quirky cameras to my collection in the near future.  Which would you add to your collection first? I am thinking the Fugifilm Instax Mini
Fujifilm Instax Mini 7s Instant Film Camera $59.99
This is similar to the classic polaroid camera. Instant photos, easy to use, fabulous vintage-like photos.

Holga 120N Medium Format Fixed Focus Camera with Lens $27.99

This is a great camera if you are going for an artsy-fartsy hipster vibe.  This requires at least basic photography skills (know how to use aperture, change shutter speed, film speed etc).  Could be hard to find places to develop film. Here are some examples of photos taken with it:
This is a fun funky camera that takes four pictures in sequence and puts in on one photo, like shown below. This is a great gift idea! (eh hem, for me.  hint hint).

Lomography Diana Deluxe Package $229.95


Must have photography skills to use this Diana camera as well.  This one has a vintage vibe as well.  Above is the Deluxe package which saves you a lot of money if you intend to buy all the bells and whistles that come with it.  Below is the Diana, lone-ranger style. 
Pictures look like this:
And to top it all off, some polaroid frame magnets:


Swoon.

OMG! That white Fuji camera!!!! So gorgeous!!!! I've always had a soft spot for white stuffs, namely everything from Apple. And this one would fit perfectly into my collection! Thank for letting me know, Rachael darling!

Hi Rachael, thank you for becoming a follower of my blog! I have become a follower of your irresisteable lovely blog.
About camera's. I bought a Canon Ixus 95IS. Simple but efficient, not as glam of course as the Diana!

tywo said...

These are great. I wish I had a film camera, but I'm too lazy to go through the process of developing it.
I love Polaroids.

Hahaha...Your dream is funny! I never wear heels, but I went rock climbing bare feet once. It was painful, since this rock was on the trail that had been hit by the sun!.
Yep, my feet got super red. :)


LOVE!

What cute ideas! I especially love the Fujifilm Instax Mini and the Action Sampler Camera -- Adding these to my imaginary wishlist ... Hehe.

Debby Lee said...

I love the look of Holga photos. Myself, I will always have the cheap digital camera due to being a bit of a klutz. I always break cameras and sunglasses much to my dismay! xo

Fuji Files said...

Well I just might need a Fuji camera right!?
They're all fun though, I wonder if they would have more staying power than my polaroid sticker camera did back in the 90's.
