Rollei B&W Single Use - a HIT!

2009-03-13 8

This little sucker is so sexy and sleek, with a see-through plastic body casing and built in flash, you can’t go wrong.

What a treat to use this Rollei Single Use B/W Camera. Included in the box is the sassy see-through plastic camera filled with some Retro 400 Rollei film and a built in flash. It was so light and little I just slipped it into my jacket pocket and I was ready to go out for a night on the town.

I have to give credit to the flash. Wow does it POP!!! You can trust this camera to take great outdoor night time shots or evening dinner parties with limited lighting. But it’s not only about the flash, the film is fantastic! Great contrast and beautiful greys. And again I stress the SEXY plastic case, so outdoor and rain friendly, very practical. I also had no problem getting it developed, anyone that does B/w developing will do this single use. I was a bit sad to give the camera away though, I got kinda attached to it.

The Rollei S/U B/W camera stood the test of travel, adventures and parties. An amazing 400 speed film you can count on in your darkest of times. This camera comes in handy when you want to travel ‘light’ and still be able to bring your camera. Very easy to use, just point and SHOOT (hold down the other button for the flash)….simple. Don’t be scared, take it out, play hard with it and get amazing results. But buy extra, they make fun gifts.

The Rollei Single Use is available in the shop

    The question is how do I reuse the casing with a new roll of film?

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
