My first test shots with the Recesky TLR Camera

After 4 hours of building this from a kit (sausage fingers and small springs)

I had never used a TLR and decided to run a couple of rolls to see if it even worked…
I was blown away

I tried my first ever double exposures and I was very lucky with the position of the flowers

This really is a magnificent camera and only costs £9.99

Everyone should own one

    @110isnotdead you should, setting up the shutter is a pain, the springs need stretching to get the right speed etc but well worth it - Xpro helps withthe photos too :)

    I love my recesky! The moment when the shutters first open smoothly into a full circle of light against the dark camera body is truly magical to me. Be sure to check your shutters after every roll to make sure its working correctly :)

    great shots. My shutter always blocks after 20 shots. Currently my Recesky is unscrewed again. When I see this I want to fix it once again.

    Great value indeed, so good in fact I bought two (and converted one to pinhole!). Great set of images, I've never tried XPro so that will be the next roll through my Recesky :-)

    I love mine...but yeah, check the shutter after every roll...I've had to fix mine once already (that shutter spring is the hardest part @_@). I adore it, I might buy another XD.
