Konica APS DIsposable - The Camera of Nostalgia


I bought the Konica APS Disposable camera out of a whim. I was browsing the online shop of lomography and the psychedelic sample photos of the Konica APS suddenly caught my eye. I dropped it to my cart immediately. After all, it cost only a dozen dollars!

Since I’ve never tried the APS or a disposable camera, I did not have much confidence in it. I used my Konica APS Disposable mainly as a back-up camera. It is, therefore, not surprising that it took me half a year to finish the roll of 27 shots.

Looking for a local lab that could process the APS format of film was no easy job for me, but I finally found one. It was costly but I decided to give it a go! When I get the prints, however, I was a bit shocked because all my photos were apparently cropped! But hey! The colours are so lovely and nostalgic thanks to the plastic lens and 4 years expired film!

    Shot 2 is gorgeous, the colors are so delicious!!! And shot 5 is excellently composed! These cameras are definitely a little fickle, but fun!

    thank you, everyone!
    the quality of the photos is somehwat comprised because of dusts on the lens. it was my mistake to put it in my bag naked.
    by the way, i find it weird that the first paragraph (summary) of my reviews is always omitted when published! could that be a bug??

    the first paragraph of every article, location, review, etc. is the text they show on the main page when you are in the magazine scrolling down through articles. you have to read it there, then click on the article and read the rest of it.
