Little Blackbird, Fly

Have you ever heard of the twin lens reflex camera, blackbird, fly?  Yeah, I hadn’t either. Until my brother gave me one.

Pretty, huh? What makes it affordable is that it’s completely made out of plastic (except maybe a lens or two). Also, it uses 3mm film, something that’s still easy to find today even within our advanced digital camera age.

I love it’s concept and how it looks. Especially the reflex viewfinder mirrors:

I don’t really have much to say for this post…other than that I should get out and take more pictures with this sweet little camera.

    • Yes! I love how most of the pictures come out. As for the ones I don’t, I think I just need to get a better feel for what kind of exposure I should use for whatever light there is.

      There’s something satisfying about taking pictures with film again. The photos just look more…deep than digital ones.
