    I've been using TP for about a year now and have realized there are a number of people who enjoy using Low-fi Film cameras and attempting to get the best from them within their limitations. As I had inherited a number of these type of cameras myself and now understand them a little better than I did at first I thought it would be nice to see others photos from such cameras. There are extra virtual points for gaffer tape, hacks, bodges, home built and modified cameras but no standard SLR or range finder shots. please state your camera and include any photos should it be modified or homebuilt.

    I'll start off with this photo taken on a Panasonic c-420 af point and press Using Kodak Colourplus 200. just as I first started, I expected it to be really naff so didn't use it for shots of anything I thought to be important but just as this train in Whitby decided to move I ran out of film on my SLR so literally climbed the fence pointed and pressed, I was pleasantly surprised by the result
    although I hadn't a clue really how to use it ( I've now read the manual) , ! It seems great at relatively close up shots but has a very narrow depth of field blurring the back ground and struggles with anything other than good light unless its really close and you can use the flash. I do love the look of the photos this camera produces but I'm not sure quite why ?

    This is from the Lomo Fisheye II - which has just one shutter speed and one aperture:

    I've also used Kodak waterproof disposable cameras for pictures of my kids at water parks or the beach, and they work surprisingly well.

    Thanks. Badgers of the world unite! :D As you say, it's not too bad a looking result from a 94 year-old camera that has a mass-produced meniscus lens, but if you look closely the edges and corners are fairly soft; so it goes to show that good lighting and contrast can hide a multitude of sins!

    First try with my Praktica Regal point and press not the best results ! There was a light leak from the end of the door which fits really badly and one from the bottom right of the door. I'm trying again with all the door seams taped up and some Kodak colourplus 200. This one although I had to crop the light leaks out appeals to me. Mrs Badger over looking Whitby piers.Again short depth of field with this camera as has my other similar camera the Panasonic c 420 af
