The charm of
toy cameras is in the unexpected.
They're everywhere! Holga, Diana and Lomo cameras. The Blackbird Fly too.
Toy cameras don't provide instant gratification. They aren't exactly a faithful representation of reality - both qualities greatly prized by digital photographers. The unexpected images, rather warped pictures, the slight delay-waiting for the prints to come back-may seem like draw-backs at first. After a few rolls, you'll find these elements benefit your creative process.
Toy cameras invoke child's play, restoring to you some of the original magic of photography experienced by every film photographer since Daguerre in 1834. Slow down, simplify and enjoy!
Toy Camera Prints
Make your Images Stand Out
Holga, Diana, Lomo, and other toy cameras make amazing prints from your 120 film. Everyday we process C41 (color negative) E6 (color transparency) including cross-processing and B&W 120 film. The very new Blackbird Fly makes square images on 35mm film. Now we've created a number of print options from toy camera negatives to take your images to a whole new level.
