5.0 out of 5 stars Cool little plastic camera, Lomo-style!, December 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
What a great little camera! This kit is exactly what I expected from the reviews, and maybe a little more! I found that it was fairly easy to put together, and it took about an hour. You NEED to pay attention and take your time though, as one or two parts seem to be mislabelled and sometimes the directions have you put things together in an order that is not optimal for easy construction. That being said, the box and the directions were well laid out, and there were plenty of descriptions, troubleshooting tips and other (very) helpful tips in the manual. Lots of good pics to refer to. The camera itself is slightly delicate, but that is to be expected. it looks cool as hell, like a vintage one from another dimension. First roll of experimentation yielded a couple of GREAT photos. You CAN very easily do multiple exposures (perhaps too easily) which come out wonderfully if you have very good lighting. I suggest having very good lighting for your pics, or they won't really come out well. If you have poor lighting and try to do multiple exposures, they REALLY won't come out. That being said, this was a pleasure to build, and the pics were really cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lo-Fi Masterpiece, March 31, 2010
This review is from: This Town (MP3 Music)
I read somewhere that described the singer in this band as sounding like a mix between John Lennon and Bob Dylan, and that is a pretty apt description. Between peels of mic feedback, layered chiming guitars and the ocassional percussive instruments, the impassioned vocals battle through a reverbed fog attempting to reach the top of the mix. This record gets it all correct, using the 4-track recorder like another instrument or effect to further the dreamy, 60's oriented garage pop vibe. As cool as the decayed, ageless sound is, this record would be nothing without melody and tunes- and it has some wonderfully catchy songwriting, a craft that is sorely lacking in a lot of stuff today. I would highly recommend this to anyone that can appreciate lo-fi, garage, indie, etc.
