I was so thrilled that my Christmas present to myself this year was the Belair Globetrotter. Normally, when I pick up a package at the post office, I have to open it immediately. But, this time, I decided to be patient and wait because I knew I would want to have a window of time that was quiet and that I could dedicate to analyzing every detail of this new camera and read through the instruction manual.
When I first opened the box, I was a bit surprised at how big this camera actually was. But when I picked it up, it felt very light. I loved the leather/pleather detail around the body, but my favorite feature was definitely the bellows – it just looks cool and sets this camera apart from all the others in my collection.
One of the things I really like about this camera is that there aren’t too many settings to mess with before taking a photo. I love the light sensor for auto exposure. Here are the first couple of photos I shot with it. I think I will have to bump the ISO setting down further next time I attempt indoor or night shots with it. I have only just begun to experiment with this camera, and can’t wait to shoot more with it. I am inspired by all of the wonderful photos I have seen from the other Lomographers that already have their Belairs.
