I want this camera…

Blackbird Fly Twin Lens Reflex Camera

Blackbird comes with some ranges of color: red, blue, orange, yellow etc etc…and I want it …. it’s awesome…and cute (that’s what I think).


The Blackbird, fly is an analog twin-lens reflex film camera: one lens is used to expose the film, while the other is used like a viewfinder. With roots in the 1920s photography, the Blackbird features two viewfinding options: For quiet and reflective framing, you can hold the camera at waist level and look down.

Back to old school! This new model uses regular 35mm film which makes it easy to process anywhere. This camera has three different formats to choose how you'd like your photo to look: the normal 24 x 36, the square 24 x 24, and the full 36 x 36 (which fills up the entire width of the film including the side sprocket holes). Another good thing of this that it also has a hot shoe for flash and a bulb function for long exposure shots in low light situations.



The concept of the camera is to invite people to take more time when framing, a slower type of photography: "You load the film and position the camera at your navel. Peer down into the viewfinder and find the world reflected in the mirror, suspend your breath and capture the subject, release the shutter. With this act you lock in a piece of the world in your miniature box. Hahaha.isn’t it awesome…back to oldies, it just remind us of our grandpa’s camera…using the manual shutter and using a film while now everyone using DSLR and memory card ( you can see your results instantly – my mom will angry with me if she know I want to buy this camera LOL).

Anyway, this twin-lens reflex camera harkens memories of these glittering fantasies of pictures, when taking them meant capturing a scene." And what I read from other bloggers, this one is quite recommended…

So grab it fast…only cost you USD120 (purchase here)
