Smena Symbol vintage camera review

I know it’s been a long time coming, but here comes a new camera review!

My collection and types of cameras has vastly grown since my last review, partly because I keep buying new ones and partly because my friends have caught on to my photography fixation, and I’ve been getting obscure cameras for presents as well, which is neat.

Toycams, Philosophy and a Dragonite.

Dragonite and Snorlax welcome you! …  They also seem to be inspecting and testing out my prized Gakkenflex.  Photo taken with Digi Harinezumi 2++, ISO800

Hello all,

I know there’s not much to see right now, but if you stick around, you’ll see this place gradually build up. Over time, I’ll be uploading my favourite photos that I’ve taken with my numerous toy cameras.  If you mosey on over to my About page, you’ll see a little of what I aim to achieve here.  Like I said there, my philosophy is to never digitally alter any of the photos I post up here – all of it is 100% toycam goodness.  Almost all of the photos I post up will be from toy cameras (I say almost because, well… I have to use a normal camera to take a photo of my toy cameras). I’ve seen toycam blogs which admit to digitally altering their photos, and I just think that it completely defeats the purpose of using a toycam at all

On top of  sharing my photos, I’ll also report my various experiences and experiments with my toycams and post up guides and reviews, all in order to help you get the most out of yours.  And if you don’t own a toycam, maybe I can persuade you to invest in one yourself.

Currently I own a Digital Harinezumi 2++, a Gakkenflex (from the Otona no Kagaku magazine, volume 25), a Superheadz Ultra Wide and Slim, a Superheadz Golden Half and a Smena Symbol (which is a vintage non-toycam film camera)
