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:
My, isn't the Fisheye No. 2 quite a unique-looking camera? Despite this, though, this analogue wonder is very easy to operate. Here are a couple of video tutorials to help get you started, featuring the luxurious Fisheye No. 2 Brut!
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.
As a scientist, Pierrick is often curious about the mechanism behind how things work. His first brush with analog photography is no exception. Eager to know more about the inner workings of a film camera, he started from scratch and tested his DIY skill with the Konstuktor camera.
On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
