Since I was in high school, I've always wanted to collect cameras. Not just for
the sake of having a lot of things brag but I've always loved photography and
its evolution. And so, it got into my mind that in order for me to deeply understand
photography and it's scenic nature, I should first explore its different types of gears.
Well, I'm not saying everybody else should agree with me, it's just my personal belief.
I know that in this generation, most of us have already disregarded the use of film and
other inconvenient manual cameras because of the emergence of high-tech
digital cameras. I'm even guilty for being one of those people. But you see, I wasn't
born in the golden years and I wasn't able to fully experience the joy of film.
But I want to satisfy my thirst so I saved up some bills to get myself this Instax Mini from Fujifilm.
It doesn't cause much and it's not as sharp as my Nikon dslr camera but I'm really happy with it.
I haven't explored much on this new baby yet but I will have all the time and money soon.
The camera may be too cheap but the film/sheets are too expensive for a jobless kid like me.
My father didn't like the idea of me collecting film cameras because he thinks they're
old and useless. But that's not how I see it. I even appreciate photos taken on film
rather than on digital cameras. Manual film cameras don't allow you to delete and retake photos. It's
a one time big time shot. You gotta be sure with your angles or end up wasting your shots. And
because I'm in love with taking pictures, I am willing to risk the convenience to experience
the hassle of these manual things.
Oh the thrills of vintage stuff. The experience is just too irreplaceable.
This is the very first camera I bought with my own money. Hihihi
But don't get me wrong, I still do appreciate my father's support for my passion.
I'm even grateful that he provides me all the equipment I need and want regardless of
the price. Thank God for loving and supportive parents!!! :D
That would be all for now.
Thanks for reading! :)
I will be posting more photos from my intax camera soon so stay tuned. ;)
