While looking for information about a certain camera i came across a blog of a guy who posted each week a test-photo of one of his cameras. I thought i could do something new each week or better use something I already have and don´t just shoot with the same 3 or 4 cameras all the time. So I had the idea to get some new ones or some others don´t use that often.

Shooting with 30 different cams in 30 weeks seemed OK to me even though I know I have to get some from ebay or from friends. I even asked the guy from my photo-lab if he would join in and give me cams to shoot a roll with them. Well he liked the idea and so I hope he´ll keep his promise and help me out with 3 to 5 cams.

But the project would be a bit too expensive when only shooting with new cams or better cams I have to buy for the project. So I´ll surely shoot a roll with my Lomo-Cams like the LC-A and the Supersampler. And everyone can support the 30 weeks, 30 cams project with sending a camera over to me – needless to say you´ll get it back! and well, the LSI should join in to let me shoot a roll with the horizon ;)

Anyway the main problem won´t be the cameras i think. it´ll be to have the time to go out and not just shoot something but to shoot a meaningful pic of something. Then I´ll have to get them in time and so on… Well, we´ll see. If I end up with 25 weeks it´ll be OK, too I think. But the plan is 30. Maybe if more join in with some special cameras they have it´ll be even more.
For now I can relax because I have enough cameras for the next 10 to 15 weeks. So stay tuned…

Btw: the plan is to do articles about the cameras, too but that´ll be a bit difficult as it takes time to write. But in the beginning I hope I get it done.

    Make sure you use a pinhole on April 28.

    @emperornorton: good idea. i take part but have to get me a pinhole first. or maybe i´ll use my F+ on pinhole mode. btw: i habve no experience with pinhole therefore it would be good to give it a try.

    @bloomchen: wenn du einen Belichtungsmesser hast, kannst du den Zeitwert der dir bei Blende 22 angezeigt wird mit 40 multiplizieren und hast dann die Belichtungszeit für die Diana+ Pinhole :))
