Analogue All Around Taiwan

Upon my arrival to Taiwan, I quickly realized how much faster the analogue world has caught up compared to my small island of Hawaii. Almost every store window I looked into had an analogue camera as decoration, advertisement, or inventory! See the analogue goodies after the jump!

I supposed I shouldn’t be surprised at how different things are here from home. The places that I visited (Taipei and Taichung) were busy all the time. It was interesting to see the way analogue and Lomography have been incorporated into the fashion and business world in Taiwan.

Take a look at what I saw when I was there:

A Leica M9 in a fashion ad at the mall

A Golden Half in a store window

A strange looking one in the same store window

(Can anyone identify it?)

Manual camera look alike necklaces

Magazines featuring old analogue lenses and cameras at a book store

A fuzzy camera bag

Assorted cameras on lunch bags at the mall

A Yashica on display as decoration at a small boutique

Tiny camera charm at a music store, saw lots of these tiny cameras

Lots of camera baggies

A wannabe Holga?

A luggage tag; looks like a Fisheye 2 and Diana F+ mutation….strange

Camera strap box

Wannabe polaroids

Even a tiny film strip on a card!

And my favorite…a table covered with a layer of film canisters!

It was actually really cool to see all of this stuff all over the place. Indeed, film is not dead! :)

No need to fly to Taiwan to get some analogue goods and gadgets; visit the Shop and score your own stuff today!

    Actually the camera in the window is a kodak brownie not a golden half.

    @andrewcc Oh I was talking about the camera on the right. I wasn't sure of what the other camera was but now I do, thanks!
