Over The Limit, Sir ? – Minolta zoom 110 SLR 1 Roll review

This is probably the weirdest camera I own. I wasn’t too sure if I if I should provide a breath sample with it or take photos. Welcome to the Minolta Zoom 110 SLR.

Is it Hip to be Square ? – Lomography Instant Square – first thoughts

I find myself weirdly reviewing genuinely brand new analogue film camera. It’s also an instant one (a first here !).  Lomography’s latest Diana series camera arrived yesterday. Whilst I haven’t been able to test it fully, I’m starting to get a feel for this Kickstarter shooter.
