Another new toy!!

This is my brand new BBF camera which arrived yesterday from Japan. It's a plastic "toy" twin lens reflex camera which uses 35 mm film.

In June I was contacted by the nice people at Powershovel in Japan asked if I would use the prototype of this camera for a week and put through the 5 films that they sent me. At the end of the week both films and camera were returned. The deal was that they would keep the negatives to use for promotion etc and when the camera was released they'd send me the photos I took and my own camera. If you are interested in the details, I wrote about it Here

It was such a fun camera to use that I am really looking forward using it again!

Surrounding it are some of the 150 or so photos I took over the course of that week.

There's more detail on Powershovels BBF Page, including prices and a gallery which features some of my shots. [thanks to fellow testerArtpunk for the link]
