I was watching VH1 last night and Elton John's "Your Song" Music Video started playing. What immediately caught my attention is that it is full of analogue cameras! Lots of them! Can you name which cameras are featured in the video?
I love 80’s music so when I’m watching a music channel I mostly watch VH1 Classic because they always play loads of 80’s songs. Last night I was watching VH1 Classic as usual and Elton John’s 1970 song “Your Song” came up. I only like about 2 or 3 Elton John songs and this is one of them but I had never seen the video. What I noticed that made me really like it is that it features a lot of analogue cameras throughout the whole duration of the video!
Can you name them all or any of them? (if so leave a comment!)
I really like the artist Ellie Goulding and she also has a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song”. The cool thing about her video for her cover version is that some parts of it were shot in a way that was made to resemble the look of Super 8 home videos, and you can spot the camera at some point in the video, so her video also features analogue cameras! Maybe she can shoot her next video using a LomoKino! That would be cool :) Anyway, check it out:

The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
