It’s a toy camera with focus fixed and a cool fashion figure of a fruit juice box. Incognito shooting, here we come!
It’s a funny low tech camera, very light, small, easy to take in any pocket and easy to use, you only have to pass the film, point and shot. It comes with stickers in order that you glue at the camera, there are some interesting models of stickers. The first time i used it was with a Kodak Elitchrome 100 film and x-pro. The Sunny Fruit Juice camera have a plastic lens with cover wich produces a strange distortion very funny sometimes, like when i take building shots, trees or something straight. The viewfinder don’t shows exactly what you get in the photos and i was disappointed in some shot because i was expecting another result. This little toy have a ill-fitting back cover which produces some light leaks in almost all photos and i like when it occurs. It´s very amusing to go out thereabouts with this small box of juices that do photos, many people laughs and asks you what it is. It´s a camera for sunny days!

Israel-based musicians Balkan Beat Box are inspired by a variety of styles: klezmer, reggae, and hiphop to name a few. As it turns out, they were also quite inspired while shooting with the Lomo'Instant Wide on tour and share their photos with us here.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
