How to keep them little buggers from wasting your precious film? Multiple-exposure trickery!
This is just a quick tip, and may not be accessible to all cameras. Just letting you be aware of one great use for that multiple exposure switch on your camera.
Toy cameras, being the toys that they are are instantly appealing to kids. No shocker there. Unless you’ve lectured your kid on the value of a precious roll of film, taught him/her how to get at least a half even a quarter decent photo or your kid has a natural talent in photography, what you’re gonna get is shot after shot of the same thing.
I learned this trick when I once photographed my friend’s son, simply because he was a cute little thing. He got interested in my camera because of the colored flash and took it from me and snapped and snapped at me. But my camera was loaded with some of my precious film! and I am not keen on being photographed!
Just flip the multiple exposure switch whenever the kid demands he be able to press the shutter button and want to see some colored flash. Easy! Film wastage can go down to just one single frame.

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.

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
In this digital age, more and more photographers and filmmakers are getting charmed by technologies of the past. Those who prefer working with a tangible medium move from manipulating pixels to tinkering with vintage film cameras. Film director and scriptwriter Jan Okulicz-Kozaryn is one of them.
