the weekend artist artist fave art materials: A digital toy camera

photo from http://leicarumors.com/2010/12/15/leica-look-a-like.aspx/

As I have mentioned in my previous post my craving for lomography 
has not been sated at all.
My hubby has been saying that it is really not worth my money since it's only a 'toy' being the 'expert' on cameras. 
He has been into photography way before I met him, so maybe he is right. 
So I settled on a digital toy camera which is a Vivitar Vivicam 
specifically the one on the left.
 I bought it with a fabric strap(quite similar to the one in the picture above in tan color). They often describe this model as a Leica-look-alike. 
I fell in love with it's vintage look.

Here are some sample shots from the same model of camera. 
All photos taken from http://p-gear.com/SHOP/viv8027.html
I actually bought the cam for  around HKD 800.00 in hongkong from Log-On.
The quality can't compare though to a good Digital camera but it does serve it's purpose generating lomo-ish shots. 

p.s. Im still wanting a Diana lomo camera...hopefully soon!

goodbye for now...

haven't seen you for some time! My camera got busted and I am now using my Ipod to take pics for my blog- it works fine! It even has some effects I use (like lomo!). I've never been to Shamsuipo (looks like I'm missing soemthing!) Yes do try the altered book project. If you want to be creative every day, there's always something you can do for it! I like Sark, I have one of her books. She's alsways so enthusiastic! :^) patsy
