OK, let’s be honest; I didn’t expect a lot from the two cameras I selected. As expected, one of them performed terribly.
The other, although not perfect, did offer some surprises.
The Konica Pop (with broken flash) was loaded with Kentmere 400. As I have already reported, the film snapped in the camera. I tried to salvage it, but alas, it had been exposed to too much light and the film was ruined. Just as well I binned the camera!
The Konica Pop Super did manage to get some good shots (and some awful shots).
I shot it with two rolls of film. Kentmere 400 and Street Candy.
Admittedly the conditions in which I was shooting the camera was pushing it and the film. Coupled with the fact the flash was jammed on so I tapped it over, probably didn’t help.
I tapped the flash as I wanted to be inconspicuous (well as inconspicuous as you can be wielding a bright red plastic camera!).
The Kentmere photos ended up lighter and greyer, whereas the Street Candy photos were darker and had deeper blacks.
I will share my favourite photos over the coming days but wanted to share these two to give a comparison of the films.
I enjoyed using the Konica Pop Super but, I am not sure I would go out of my way to use it again.
This was a fun experiment. Maybe for the next #ShittyCameraChallenge I’ll try to find an even shittier camera!
