Took me three rolls of film to get the hang of this camera. It was great fun and now I'm looking forward to photographing spring and summer.

what i think is... they take me way way back... very appealing!

Are those straight from the brownie (as in not photo-shopped at all?), they have a very vintage feel to them. And what size of film do they take.

I had a photography instructor who used to wander around the epic house parties he hosted, with a 4x5 camera taking 'snapshots' of his guests LOL...

These ones were cropped in photoshop. If you don't keep the camera super steady you get a blurry shot, and I think either the lens is dirty or there is a light leak, or both, which contributes to the vintage feel. I posted some of the cleaner shots on flickr. The camera is real hit and miss sometimes.

Originally they used 620 film but it's no longer made so I use 120 film and slightly modify the spool to fit the brownie.

I'm looking for a Polaroid sx70 and a vintage holga next.
