First, there was the Futurama straight-to-DVD movie. Now there’s this news, via Pitchfork –
“…at 12 PM EST on the 15th (Monday), the White Stripes will begin taking orders for the his’n’hers cameras depicted above. There’s the “Meg” Diana camera, which comes with a custom filter and a ringflash accessory (which produces a unique appearance of a 3D shadow on the images), or the “Jack” Holga camera, with custom filters and a fisheye lens accessory. What’s more, the first 333 folks to order both cameras get a “mystery gift”. Please say it’s a lenscap!
Both cameras appear to be of the lomographic variety, a type of instrument which tends to produce images with particularly vivid colors, strange exposures, and a lot of weird unintended effects. They’re really neat!”
I’ve been toying with the idea of getting into some more “experimental” photography, or whatever you want to call it, using different kinds of cameras. You know, with all that time that I have on my hands. (Note – that last sentence was the only one in this post intended to be read with a hint of sarcasm. I really do want the Futurama movie. And the cameras – though not necessarily the White Stripes’ versions.)
