Good For Beginners
on October 30, 2012
Originally I bought this camera because I wanted to take fisheye photos but didn't have the money for a dSLR plus a fisheye lens. I am pretty happy with this camera overall! I had never used a film camera before this one but it's easy to figure out. Also, it has a multiple exposure switch and a bulb setting, so you can use them to make pretty cool effects. The mx switch allows you to take multiple shots on the same frame, and the bulb setting allows you to keep the shutter open as long as you want, so you can play around with light painting, etc.
cheaper than dSLR + fisheye lens
pretty sturdy for being plastic
easy to use, good for beginners
allows major creativity
viewfinder is higher than the lens, so you sort of have to guess where to aim the lens
doesn't work in darker settings; would recommend using on very sunny days
the large lens actually blocks the flash, so you have a dark spot on the side of the photo
All in all, this is a pretty good camera for someone who is new to the concept of film photography. Not for perfectionists, since I can guarantee some of your pictures won't turn out. The camera shoots best in bright light and you will need the flash for most darker settings. As I mentioned, the flash is blocked a little by the lens, so I would recommend buying a ring flash if that will bother you. I have probably taken about a hundred photos and love about 1/3 of them. I would recommend this product.
