Introducing the Double Dip
I enjoy tinkering with film cameras, especially toy/plastic cameras. I came across these generic re-usable cameras and decided to add a multiple exposure (MX) switch. I shot a few rolls, enjoyed the results, then gave a few out to friends and family. They went down pretty well. Now I've decided to sell a few online, for what I hope is a reasonable price.
The basic camera is a simple one-button affair, with a fixed focus 28mm plastic lens. It produces a pronounced vignette, with a blurry edge but sharp centre. It's like a Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim, only more chunky in design and less wide in lens.
Here's some test shots, there are more elsewhere on this blog and at the Double Dip flickr group
I'm making them in batches of 10, and each of the first batch of 10 will come with a free, random roll of expired 35mm film (theres some slide, some colour and a couple of B/W rolls).
As you can see from the price I'm not hoping to make a fortune, just to make some much needed film-money. I'm selling via eBay (click the link at the top of the page) just to make things easier. I'm also up for trading film for a camera, let me know if you are interested.
