Selling for less than $10 USD, this disposable camera has a 17mm ultra wide angle lens. There is a mirror attached around the lens for taking self-portraits. Taking self portraits with a whole bunch of people is great fun, and very easy. The camera has a fixed aperture of f/8 and fixed shutter speed at 1/100. A flash is included for indoor pictures (an absolute necessity).
The minimum in-focus distance is 40cm, which is somewhat limited for such a wide lens. For people pictures though, it’s perfect and produces very interesting effects.
There’s just one tiny little problem: this thing is disposable. Luckily, Konica has designed it well enough that people discovered a way to reload the film! It made me a bit nervous but the result was worth it.
Beyond the medium, Jacqueline Badeaux uses every aspect of analog photography to manipulate her images. Chemicals, film soups, keeping the same frame for different pictures, she's a magician that creates landscapes only her imagination can see.
