Blackbird, Fly: Plastic vintage-inspired camera uses 35mm film

blackbird-fly-camera-1.jpg

The “Blackbird, Fly” is an all-new, all-analog camera from Japan’s Superheadz that recreates the square images and down-looking viewfinder of an old Rolleiflex, but does so on 35mm film. Which I’m sure is fun and makes fine, interesting images and everything, but would drive me nuts. I’ll make my blurs and smudges the old fashioned way, thanks: by being a horrible photographer.

But if you feel the need, the “Blackbird, Fly” is going to cost around $100. I’m sure someone will import a few for our Lomo-addled photographer friends soon enough.

    Any camera that uses film is pretty much vintage as it is.

    one: why are the images in the gallery full frame? Furthermore why are they so boring? http://www.superheadz.com/bbf/

    two: if they’re square, how many to a roll of film? Is 36 exposures actually 45?

    Want! These tings are great for clandestine photography. Hang it round your neck and just casually glance down. Now can I have a digital version with a sunshielded LCD in the top?
