In the good old days, for better or worse, film was it.I still love me some yummy black and white film, a combination of camera formats, 35 mm, medium format, and toy!
Yes, I love toy cameras.I have a collection of Holga cameras, made in china they take medium format film, have leaking camera backs letting in random stray light and almost no control what so ever. That is the charm and beauty.Raw, rough, almost like instant.
I also play with vintage Polaroid cameras.I have a retro fitted 1959 110a polaroid tht I bring to weddings to make adorable one of a kind images at our photobooth. Guests love the fact that it is analog. I love the film quality and instant ( 30 sec.) development.
