New Rare Camera in my Repertoire




I bought this rare homemade camera recently and finally got around to trying it out. I went to the Santa Monica Pier on Tuesday and then went to Disneyland on Wednesday. It is made of wood and has the shutter from a large format camera and a 35mm Pentax lens. It creates very unique looking images. The camera back is from an old Graflex 120 camera. The great thing about the camera is it has a Polaroid back so once you have the correct exposure you just pop on the film back and shoot away and you know you've got the shot.
Here are a couple of Polaroids. I hope to somehow integrate this camera into my wedding work. Haven't tried shooting a person with it yet. That will be next.

Hi! Zoe here. Nifty camera! Definitely unique. That little scope on top makes it look like it's for spying purposes, heh.

I'm just testing out comments and making sure they work.
