Oh man this is so cool.
Ok, I admit it. I’m a sucker for things like this. (That time I bought a Lomo LC-A? Yeah…)
Yeah, I’m taking two film cameras with me next week (a Nikon N-60 and a Diana Mini) and I went to B&H last weekend to buy film. I understand.
(Also, is it a vintage Lomo? Where do you get the film processed?)
Yeah, it’s an ’80s camera; I haven’t used it in a long time. (In fact, I was thinking just the other day that I should take it out of storage. Also, I’ve never used a Diana, but want to try one!) I used to send most of my film off to Vermont Color in Bennington, but I’ve also used local labs and also Dwayne’s in Kansas (through the mail, obviously). I have a sort of ridiculous collection of vintage cameras, with the oldest of them dating to the 1910s. I’ve used most of them at one point or another, and I still use my grandmother’s early-1950s Brownie quite a lot. B&H is my best friend.
My Diana is a contemporary hipster knock-off that uses 35mm, but it’s still fun. I found this place that does mail-order process and scan for pretty cheap, and they did a decent job. I haven’t ordered prints from them yet, but I probably will after these trips this summer.
