Have you heard about “toy cameras” and thought they were the Fisher Price version of your point-and-shoot? Well, they’re actually really fun, easy-to-use film cameras for grownups. I’m excited to have Rhianne of For the easily distracted… guest posting a toy camera guide today! -Lindsay
1. Do a bit of research. Like all cameras, each toy camera is different with different functions and different results, consider your options, have a look at the style of photos that you like and then pick a camera that suits you and what you want from it.
2. Expect your first roll to be bad. Then you won’t be disappointed and you might even be pleasantly surprised if it isn’t.
Focus – Aperture – Shutter – Take Photo
4. Always double check the shutter button. This button is your worst enemy (and sometimes your best friend) and the one button that should always be checked! I’ll admit, I forget to do this and I always regret it afterward especially as my Diana mini shutter button seems to have a mind of its own recently. N not B. N not B.
