My photos arrived from Japan today. The ones I took with the Black Bird Fly (mine is blue). I was convinced that they were all going to be uttterly terrible, but actually over half of them turned out well and there are about a dozen that I am really very happy with and intend to frame. Bonus. Now that I know what works and what doesn't, I'll be getting myself some more film and taking the BBF out for more photo fun. Hurrah.
Give over.

I really really love these ones, especially the pylon. amazing!

i have two film cameras, which i don't actually have pictures of.

the first is my gran's pentax auto 110. it's great - an automatic slr with changeable lenses and tiny film! the colours make all the pictures very dreamy. click for a flickr set:

and the other one i got off ebay for £30 last year; an AGFA Isolette II, medium format. i haven't taken many pictures with it because i still need to knuckle down to this actually learning how to use a camera thing, but the ones i've taken are nice:

I managed to take a non-blurry picture of the castle off the top of Arthur's Seat.
Thank you, broken tripod.

Eeeeee!

I bought myself a Canon EOS 450D today!!

It is tons of fun, but I'm obviously pretty confused about most of it, haha. But I've been snapping away anyway, trying to capture a bit of everything. Sadly it's pouring down outside, so I won't be taking it out tomorrow.

I’d recommend Kodak Ektar 100 for Holga shots, I got my pictures processed yesterday and I am pretty happy with the results: it worked well indoors, outdoors and at gigs (surprisingly). I’ve been using Fujifilm Reala too, but I think the Kodak pictures are better. Now I want to try Kodak Ektachrome E100. I’ll upload the pictures when scanned.

i'm cheering you on from the sidelines pete. i could do with an answer as well as my camera is so shite, i may as well just randomly spin the dials on an etch-a-sketch.

Hello! From my very much amateur photo point of view, the Canon Ixus range is great! A lot of people I know have had different varities slightly higher up on the pricing scale, mine is the Canon IXUS 950 IS, and it has been great. Personally, I love Canon.

Although now, I'm lugging around the EOS 450D everywhere. It takes really lovely pictures, even when you're a klutz like me. Once I sit down to actually read the handbook, I'm sure they'll be even better, haha!

I have the Canon Ixus 70 and it isn't bad at all! I wish it looked a bit funkier but the photos it takes are good. Although, I have to admit, I can't really compare it with other cameras. I had a Nikon Coolpix before and absolutely hated it because it was so slow but then I had bought that ages ago. You know back in the days when digital cameras ate batteries like a monster and it took ages for them to actually shoot the photo.

Anyway. Canon Ixus is good!

Thanks for that, folks.

My mate says if he were in the market now he'd get a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS62. He also reckons I shouldn't go for this Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W190 despite it being reduced from 200 to 100 quid, because the lenses aren't much cop on Sony cameras. Any thoughts?

Also - we've got digital cameras and digital TV, so why isn't there a digital Etch-a-Sketch?

I've been told that with SLRs Canon or Nikon tend to be best, and with small personal cameras, the Canon IXUS series is the best. A blogger I follow takes her party pics with that Lumix one, if I'm not mistaken, and it takes cute pictures.

I liked my Canon IXUS because it takes great, clear pictures, the display is big and it has good settings. It was simply really really easy to use, always took nice pictures, and never let me down. Here are some pictures taken with my Canon IXUS 950 IS if that helps:

I love the last 2 photos! Great work.
I would love a BBF but I would never pay so much for a toy cam...

My Melody: I also have a Smena 8M, it gives good vignetting & distorsion!

(the pictures in b&w)
When you change the distance, does the lens move forward/backward? (very slightly)

humblebee: I don't know much about small cameras, but I guess that if you want decent quality in low light, you will have to pay more... -> http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/C ... on_g11.asp
