There’s something really odd about us sometimes. No sooner do we ditch an old technology, bankrupt the industry and move on to a new improved way of doing things, than we start pining for the way things used to be, and gushing over ‘retro’ products that appear on the market. Look at vinyl records, or vintage telephones if you don’t believe me.
So now we have another perfect example with this Recesky Twin Lens Reflex Camera Kit. Sure it’s plastic, and comes in kit form, but it uses chemical 35mm film for Pete’s sake. And the really fascinating thing is the images it takes look just like the kind of trendy stuff that Instagram produces on your $600 smartphone. Great, eh? It takes about an hour to assemble, copes best with ISO400 film stock, and it’s got a cool top down viewfinder so you can look like a real pro when you use it. Best of all, it’s only $29.99.
