My Nishika in the Netherlands.
Tag Archives: toy
I bought my Sprocket Rocket 2 weeks ago and finally got my first roll back. And I am impressed. Impressed enough that this will replace my Holga as my new sprocket creating mayhem wonder. No lightleaks, no overlapping images, not dealing with gaffers tape, no liquids pouring out, this camera has it all.
It is also very wide. Wider than I expected. The lens is nice and sharp and the focus mechanism is nice and simple. I’m loving it.These were shot using Solaris 200 film by Ferrania. They give the distinct “plus” “minus” look around the upper sprockets.
Next is to try to some night shots in bulb mode. I am also waiting for a flash from Ebay so I can try out some flash photography with the Rocket. But this is probably the best first roll of film I’ve ever gotten back. Congratulations Sprocket Rocket, you just made the team !
More, more 3-D photos. This time in the latest black & white technology. Ever wonder what happens when Fomapan 100 Black & White film meets a plastic 4-lens Nishika camera and go at it in Paris and Amsterdam? Well wonder no more !
Give this page some time to load. These GIFS are heavy. Unless you are here from the future on some crazy laser moon speed internet connection then nevermind.
The Disderi 3-lens toy camera also known as the Robot camera is plastic toy camera with either 2, 3 or even 4 lenses. I got the 3-lens version as a gift a couple of years ago.(thanks Dahmee!) It’s a very basic toy camera without a hot-shoe or viewfinder or any other type of setting. Since there are no settings, its better to load it up with fast film and head out on a sunny day. Find dynamic subject that really show the movement that this camera able of capturing. Not all three lenses fire at the same time, there is some type of wheel and the pictures get taken consequentially.
Below is the first roll of film I put through the Disderi a couple of years ago in the US. Probably taken with some Konica film that I used to be able to find for $1 at the dollar store under their “memories” brand.
Below are the latest results of pictures I got from the last roll of film I put through the Disderi. Taken in various places in Singapore. It was an expired roll of Fuji 100 Sensia film. It had some very pink highlights and green shadows. I used Photoshop to reduce the pink highlights.
Buckle up ! And here we go.
I went trough most of my scanned film and picked out the various types of films I have cross processed along the way. Results always vary so I thought this would give a nice overview. Off course these results aren’t representative of all situations. Variations are depending on film lab, processing, use of expired film, time of the day, the stock market in Japan, whale routes in the Atlantic, so basically everything.
Roll 2: Fuji Sensia 100 Expired, much better balance in colour tones shot with light-leaky Olympus mju-2
Roll 3: Fuji Provia 100 expired, shot with a Holga and a heavy tint of Pink/purple.
Roll 4: Fuji Provia 100 expired, shot with Golden Half and same as roll 3, a bit pink.
Roll 5: Fuji Provia 400 expired. Unlike its brother, no Pink ! Greener tint.
Roll 6: Fuji Tungsten 64, shot with Canon 500 and a hint of a blue tint, but pretty balanced.
Roll 7: Kodak Ektachrome, expired. Taken with an Olympus Trip.
Roll 8: Kodak Ektachrome, FRESH, taken with a leaky Olympus mju 2.
Roll 9: Kodak Elite Chrome, FRESH, shot with Holga, muddy looking results.
Roll 10, Lomo X-PRO 100, fresh. bit underexposed but maybe due to Sprocket Rocket.
Roll 11: Lomo X-PRO 100, fresh. Bright colors, hard contrast, current favorite xpro film.
Roll 12: AGFA CT precisa, fresh. My all time favourite but dead xpro film. Hard contrast and vibrant colours. I will miss you CT precisa ( the new version is not the same, imposter !)
