New Toy Cameras

We have added three new superstars to our toy camera line up. 

First up is the Blackbird Fly.   It comes in an array of awesome colors and is probably the most visually striking modern camera I have seen in a long time.  Everything down to the packaging is well executed, which is a nod to how this camera performs.  If you can't tell by looking at it, it's a twin lens camera.  Basically that means you look down into it and shoot from the waist (there is an option to shoot "normally" too) which I think is like the photography equivalent of taking the bus or riding a bike if you are used to driving a car.  You end up seeing things in a totally different way and ending up with a new vantage point.  Most remarkable, it is a 35 MM (most twin lens cameras are 120) so you can get your rolls developed almost anywhere.

Next is the Baby Holga.  Yes, it is a 110 Holga that you can put on your keychain!  Totally portable Holga quality photos.  It's also only 20 dollars.  I can't wait to see what I get out of this one.

Finally is the Wide Slim camera.  Also available in a bunch of cool colors.  This is a super wide angle 35MM that gives you awesome vignetted shots with unbelievable color saturation.
