Doesn’t it seem like yesterday when you snapped photos on your camera and didn’t have a clue how each picture would turn out? Remember all the laughs you’d have after picking up your developed film and seeing Uncle Ted making faces in family photos? Ah yes, those were the days.
Well now the kids can share in the thrill of snapping photos the analog way (we like to call it “vintage style”—it sounds cooler) with the Fisheye Baby 110 Basic camera from Lomography.
This little beauty doesn’t take just any ordinary photos; it has a 170-degree fisheye lens that distorts the scene so the kids can get artsy with their shots. It also has a built-in flash, a bulb setting for long exposures and a switch for multiple exposures on the same frame (photogs will know what we’re talking about!). But the most impressive thing about this camera is that it’s a miniature version of Lomography’s Fisheye No. 2 camera, meaning it fits securely in little hands and kids can slip this in their pocket to take it wherever they go.
You can set aside that laptop for a while, because this camera takes 35mm film—and we all know kids can’t call themselves true photographers until they’ve played around with this stuff!
So, Mom, Dad, are you ready for your close-ups?
