Tripods are a pain in the ass to lug around when you’re out shooting. It’s necessary though, as come shots are downright impossible without the aid of one. If you still don’t want to bring one in your LomoWalks but want some semblance of stability, hackedgadgets.com suggests a simple hack to do at home.

Attach a nut and bolt to an old twist bottle cap and bring it in your camera bag. Once the need for a tripod arises, use one of your water bottles as the tripod and just switch the bottle cap with the one you made! It’s a quick and dirty way to avoid those unsightly blurry photos!

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    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.
