Cute little retro camera robots. And they are functioning cameras, too. From Etsy :: FRED the ROBOT vintage kodak camera and pool ball art assemblage.
Update: looks like the camera robot listing has been removed, but here is a link to the artist’s shop, Artsy.
I want one!
Another old favorite is back again! Based on the royal red and gold colors of traditional Chinese royalty, the Limited Edition 4A-105 is simply one of the most stunning mechanical cameras ever produced! And this guy isn’t just another pretty face – there’s a glowing 4-element Haiou lens, an auto-advance crank, a multi-exposure override button, and a host of other awesome features to behold. Like its Seagull brethren, it uses medium format film for superior color, resolution, and enlargements.
Seagull TLR camera, $285 from the lomographic society.
Cute, cute, cute. Deery Lou digital camera, also from Urban Outfitters.
Colette just launched their new website and I spotted this limited edition Polaroid pop camera kit on there. The kit “contains one instant One600 ultra camera, 2 stickers sheets to make your own camera and one pack of 10 photos with ‘Pop design’ customised frames.” I do think it is overpriced considering you are just putting the stickers on to decorate the camera. But it is fun to look at. And the colette site is fun, too.
Jessica sent me a bunch of cool goods with camera designs and thank god she did! My computer died on Friday and I’m just getting fototiller back up and running – so I’m so happy to post her finds. Thanks Jessica!
(BTW – Jessica is one of the nicest bloggers around; be sure to check out her blog Funky Finds!)
Our little fashionista is turning three next week, and we decided to buy her a camera (her first). We went ahead and got her this little cow camera, but when I saw this Hello Kitty digital camera I almost bought it on the spot. Luckily, l took a moment to read the reviews. It sounds like it’s pretty crappy! Anyone ever use one? It’s so hard to judge a product based on Amazon reviews, but these were pretty harsh. She loves Hello Kitty (as do I) so I was really hoping it would be good. Ah well, it is fun to look at.
Another cool camera shirt from this Japanese shop – boy I wish I knew japanese!
Love these tiny color flashes that you can attach to your cellphone camera or point-and-shoot. Also a fun little mirror that you can attach to take better self-portraits. Read more over on Popgadget.
Do you like tiny art and cameras? Then you’ll love Sean Tubridy’s little illustrations of retro cameras (above). Available for sale at $20 each, these are signed square 5 x 5 prints in a 9 x 9 mat. They are designed to fit in a square 9 x 9 frame like the Ribba ones at Ikea.
He doesn’t have on online shop yet, butyou can check out his website for places to buy them in Minneapolis or order by email using paypal (sales at blueoverblue dot com). Also, he has done some cool camera tees (image below, stock varies). See his flickr sets for more of his work.
Update – Sean has set up an online shop here.
Cool camera tees from Amorphia Apparel. I’m likin’ the ringer tee colors.
The X Plane, with digital camera from I Want One Of Those comes with a mini digital camera that you can attach to the plane, and shoot pictures remotely from the ground as your camera flies overhead. Not cheap for something that has the potential to crash-land ($161) – I think I still want to try some kite aerial photography.
Seems like the eighties are popping up all around me these days. And as someone who received her first camera during that decade, I thought I’d post a little eighties style photo thingy.
Maripolarama – This book of polaroids from Maripol captures the creative scene of the early eighties on the lower east side with images of Madonna, Basquiat, Grace Jones, and Anna Sui among many others.
Pop Star Frame – This has got to be the perfect frame for those eighties self-portraits. I’m thinking the ones I took with the Kodak disc cam – picture day-glo orange mesh top, irridescent mirror sunglasses, and rubber bracelets up to the elbow.
Polaroid Impulse – Straight from 1988, the Polaroid impulse is the epitome of eighties style. Head over to lomography.com – they’ve acquired 200 pieces of pristine, brand new Impulse deadstock, straight from the late 80’s.
Ice Frame – Reminiscent of the Rubik’s cube, these futuristic frames reflect from different angles for an effect that is totally awesome.
I’m often just throwing my naked little point-and-shoot in my bag and who knows what happens to it in there. This camera pocket from Gyms Pacific (they make some cool laptop bags, too) is the simple, inexpensive case I need to protect it from the junk in my bag.
Comes in an array of colors (black, milk grey, dark grey, tangerine, bluebell and blue). Available in three sizes: Small 3.5″ X 5.5″ x 0.5″ – $16.95, Medium 3.75″ x 5.75″ x 0.5″ – $17.95, Large 4″ x 6″ x 0.5″ – $18.95.
It’s the second installment of “school’s out for summer” and this week I’ve got some great cameras and albums for kids to capture and store all those fun-in-the-sun moments.
MoMA has a cool album for the tweens from their Modern Kids line, available in green and purple (on sale now for $7). Kids can use the supplied artwork for the cover or slide in their own picture – album zips closed and holds 36 4×6 photos.
Get your young one started taking pictures with some film cameras that won’t break the bank (and aren’t much more than a disposable camera, another good option for little kids). From left to right – frog, chicken and cow 35mm cameras ($12 each), underwater 35mm camera ($9), and the twin view-finder easy cam ($33).
Want to go digital? Check out the Kid-Tough digital camera for preschoolers($70). Older kids will love the cool colors and sleek shape of the Oregon Scientific 3.0 megapixel ThinCam ($100). Of course, another good option is to get a used digital camera for the kids.
Finally, for the wee-est ones, instead of a real camera get these cute camera shirts ($16, size 12 months). And put together their own little photo book with the “Look at Me” animal photo book ($7), in which you can insert a photo of your tot in each animal face frame.
It’s official – summer is here! Grab your sunscreen, crank up the dick dale and hit the beach with these summer-lovin’ photo accessories and gear.

Feeling a little tired of megapixels, memory cards and battery chargers? Sometimes it’s nice to kick it old school and get back to the basics. Way back. Pinhole cameras are making a comeback with new, modern designs that you can make from kits out of cardstock. These cameras are a lot of fun to experiment with (and also great for introducing kids to photography). There is no lens in a pinhole camera, just a tiny pinhole through which light passes to expose regular 35mm film. Here are two pinhole cameras that are fun and have a great design. With the hole-on ex camera kit, you can make a modern pinhole camera (above) from the printed cardstock parts and metal pinhole aperture (assembly requires glue, ruler and pencil) for only $20. Also, check out the new p-sharan pinhole camera now available at ICP (below). This one is made of tough cardstock that assembles with no cutting or glue ($30). Of course, you can go really old school and make your own.
Spotted on design spotter, this is one strange camera. I’ll let the designers describe it. “As a response to the increased ease with which images can be transferred, this pencil case aims to create a form of unreproducable image. An onboard pinhole camera, possessing an almost infinte depth of field, is triggered every tax year by the camera itself and is uncontrollable by the user. The resultant image can only be viewed by peeking into the case’s SLR prism viewfinder, and onto the onboard LCD screen. Constructed from american black walnut, photo-etched steel, CCD and electronics.”

awesome. unconventional. doesn’t want pink flowers or chocolates for mother’s day. here we go – your momma is…
… a total rocker
Smoy brooklyn photo cuff ($25) and plush home leather studded frame ($98). (Sadly, rocker mom’s will have to wait a while for the studded frame as it takes a while to ship, so print the pic and give it to her in the meantime).
… the coolest geek
Hard copy? Forget it. Digital locket holds a USB memory drive; load it up with pictures of her favorite offspring. And the digital keychain keeps pics close at hand ($40). (Note: still looking on where to purchase the digital locket, but it was too cool not to post.)
… a super hero
She can do anything. Get her the actionsampler camera ($30) to capture her action packed days. With one shot she’ll get a series of four images on one print. And she can put her super hero pics in the wonder woman album ($11 from chronicle books).
More camera bags that aren’t black! Or at least aren’t all black. I first read about the conico bags on shiny shiny. Conico makes all styles of camera bags to house your digital point-and-shoot. I especially like the re-ignite collection, (sampling shown here). There is a compatability chart so you can look up and see if you are lucky enough to own a camera that can wear one of these bags.
Colorful camera case from moma store. No more boring black camera bags!
“This attractive case is designed for carrying digital cameras, and roomy enough to hold keys and a card case. Two detachable straps—a wristlet and a cross-shoulder strap—make it easy to transport and leave hands free. The black and red cases are made of pebbled leather. The pink case is fashioned of a denser pebbled Italian leather. Flat magnetic closure.”
Simple, modern lomo bag for toting your camera (it has a hanging interior pocket that keeps it safe and easily accessible). And what a cool design!
If you’re like me, you covet cameras like Hasselblad, Leica and Zeiss. Until I can afford one of these, I may just have to do with an Optrixx trick lens. The lenses, which contain a multifaceted prism, are available in 5 cool designs of these classic cameras: Hasselblad, Kodak, Leica, Nikon and Zeiss Ikon. You can also take pics through them with your digitial camera; the resulting image displays the subject reflected hundreds of times. Hasselblad, Nikon and Kodak styles available online at mxyplyzk in the odds & ends section. Still looking for where to buy the Leica and Zeiss styles.
