Juansupergen has loaded his Fisheye Baby 110 with Orca B&W 100 film and taken it out for a spin. We asked him a couple of questions about his experience and it turns out it just rocks his world.
What was it like using the Fisheye Baby 110 camera?
I’d never tried 110 format before therefore It was a totally new experience for me. One the coolest things about this camera is how easy you can load and unload the film. It’s small and delicate like a baby but full of life. It’s very simple to use and fun because you have two shutter modes “N” and “B”. Just pick the right mode, hold the shutter button and wait for the magic to happen. I recommend it to all Lomographers around the world. These were my first rolls, but definitely not the last ones!
Any strange or funny moments while using the camera?
It was so funny because when I walked on the street with my camera people stared and said “What is it? Is it a toy?” And I told them “No, it’s a real film camera” And they said, “Wow cool! I want one. Where can I get it?”.
Among all your Fisheye Baby 110 snapshots, which one do you like best and why?
The photo below is my favorite one. I love the contrast, and the graffiti fonts. Also its message – It reads, What is your taboo? – And that kind of reminds me of Lomography, that’s always challenging us to think outside the box and leave all taboos behind.
If you could assign a song to your Fisheye 110 photos, what would it be?
“Born to be my baby” by Bon Jovi
