My Fisheye Baby 110 and Me: Mario

Mario took his Fisheye Baby 110 out with a roll of Lomography Orca B&W film. What did people think when they saw this baby sensation? Read on and find out.

Hey Mario!

What was it like using the Fisheye Baby 110?

First of all, it reminds me a lot of my childhood. One of the first cameras I used, was a Agfamatic Pocket Sensor. Holding the 110 Film in my hands and loading the camera was like using a time machine. Overall, shooting with the Fisheye Baby 110 was a lot of fun. Since it is really lightweight, you can almost use it as a keychain and there are absolutely no excuses for leaving it at home.

Any strange or funny moments while using the camera?

Nope, besides the fact that nobody thinks it works – which gives you absolutely freedom when you choose your object of desire. I think people expecting water to shoot out from the front of the camera……

Among all your Fisheye Baby 110 snapshots, which one do you like best and why?

I didn´t shoot that many rolls until now, but I like the one with the chef in front of the restaurant. The picture turned out really soft and is fading to the outside. It looks a little bit like taking a look into someones memory.

If you could assign a song to your Fisheye Baby 110 photos, what would it be?

One song is difficult maybe 1960 What? by Gregory Porter
