My Recent Purchase

I'm back! I know i haven't posted in a while - with college work being handed out a lot more i'm trying to keep up with it. But while i've been on my mini break, i've been spending. I have just purchased 3 beautiful vintage cameras from a lovely local shop near where i live for an unbelievable price. Unfortunately i'm struggling to find film that's in date for two of them, i have purchased some film for one of them and i'm super excited to see what results i'll get from it. 

These are all three cameras that i bought this week a Boots Disc 415 camera, a Kodak Instamatic 104 camera and a Nikon Nuvis 200.

This is the Boots Disc 415 camera which was made in the 80's. It's a small and easier camera to use (well it was back then) as it was easy to carry around and take out with you everywhere. It uses a disc shaped film rather than a roll and that's where the name also came from. It was to help reduce film processing costs because they were smaller than 110 cameras and no cheaper to buy or use back then. I have been looking around for film but i'm struggling to find any that are in date so it's still something i need to find. I've seen the effect the camera has when taking images and i would love to start using it. Maybe out of date film could work... 

This camera is an absolute beauty, the Kodak Instamatic 104 camera which was launched in 1963. This takes 126 roll film so a little smaller than other film but again i am struggling to find some that is in date. This camera has been designed so that the film is easy to load so that when you take it out your getting instant pictures that are easy to develop with the roll film. Again, I have seen what the film looks like when it's been developed from this camera and it's absolutely beautiful and I'm so desperate to find the film for it.


This is the Nikon Nuvis 200 camera and it was introduced in 1999 (the year of our last solar eclipse). It is a really light camera as they have used a light plastic for the design of this one with a small built in flash. This seems the easiest to use and it was very easy to find the film for this one as it isn't an old camera to be honest. I can't wait till I get the film and get to see the results for this one as it's a beautiful camera.
