My Photography and Art course may have finished but my new found obsession with cameras and all things photo-related refuses to go away.
I found this little gem on line at Fred Aldous earlier this week when searching for suitable stocking fillers. It is an Ikimono Mini Camera complete with a film. Of course, I couldn’t order one as a present and not order one for myself!!
It’s absolutely tiny and soooo cute!! I can’t wait to get shooting and see what comes out! I think that is the charm of film cameras – with a digital camera you can see the photo straight away and decide whether or not to take another, whether or not to delete it, everything has become so instant that we have lost the wonder and joy of waiting for something. I love going to pick up a film from Jessops or developing my own films – you never know what you’re going to find!
As soon as I have taken some photos and had the film developed, I will upload some onto here.
Unfortunately, the film needs bright daylight, something which is a little lacking in Cardiff in December.
Just as an aside – this was the first time I’d used Fred Aldous and I was very impressed with the service. I ordered on Tuesday and paid for standard delivery and it arrived first thing this morning. When I contacted the store to ask about delivery they responded promptly. I will definitely be ordering from them again. Perhaps a Lomo Camera next time…
More soon. Love, SG
