This odd-looking thing takes pictures? Oh yes, it’s acutally a pocket camera! Combined with the Lomography Orca 100 you get nice “vintage-look” photos.
My uncle recently found some old cameras in his attic and gave them to me. Eventually it was worth being the only one in my family with odd artistic hobbies :) One of the cameras is the Batacon Teleflash 110.
At first I was a bit frustrated because I couldn’t find film for it. But – what fortunate coincidence – shortly after I got the camera Lomography introduced 110 pocketfilms! Filled with Orca 110 I was finally able to test my new treasure.
The functions of the Batacon Teleflash are quickly explained. On top there’s the shutter release button and a sliding controller which lets you choose between two distance settings “norm” and _"tele".
For indoor shots there’s a flash which needs two AA-batteries. On the bottom there’s another silder for advancing the film.
That’s all you need to know about the functions of this pocket camera – simply insert your 110 film and shoot!
Here are some of my shots with the Batacon Teleflash 110 and Lomography Orca 110:
Anyway, I’m stoked by the “Lo-Fi-Look” of the pictures and I will surely continue to use this camera. I also want to try a “color film“:http://shop.lomography.com/films/110-film/lomography-color-tiger-110. Maybe you’re also lucky and you’ll find such a camera in your attic or get your paws on one at a flea market or the internet for little money. It really is fun to shoot with a pocket camera – including puzzled looks of pedestrians. I guarantee.
We’re bringing back the 110 format from the grave with Lomography Orca 110 B&W Film! Take your pocket cameras from the dusty shelves and celebrate because 110 is here again!
