Are you a fan of the vintage film camera aesthetic? While we’re all used to the instant gratification of smartphone cameras, there’s something charming and effortlessly cool about the output of vintage film cameras. However, these days, a typical model would set you back around P2,500 to P10,000, so it can be a bit pricey.Â
While there are a lot of apps you can use to create that grainy overexposed effect, you can take authentic retro-looking photos without breaking the bank. There’s an uber-cute reusable camera circling around the internet that costs less than P1,000.
The Kodak M35 film camera is a reusable film camera that uses 3mm film. Like the company’s disposable line of cameras, this gadget has a fixed focus lens, manual film winding and rewinding, and a switch to turn flash On/Off. All you need is AAA batteries and 3mm film (which costs about P200 to P400 a pack), and you’re good to go.Â
Aside from its affordability factor, what’s great about the Kodak M35 film camera is that it comes in adorable candy colors such as yellow, red, mint green, and purple. You also don’t have to worry about contributing to pollution because unlike disposable cameras, you don’t have to throw it away after usage. It’s an environment-friendly way to get nostalgic and achieve that old-school aesthetic.
If you’re interested in buying one (or more as a gift to your friends), you can shop for the Kodak M35 reusable film camera at Store.shkwowo Shopee store. They sell the camera along with a roll of film for P999, while the camera only costs P899. What a bargain, right? So get trigger happy, and capture amazing memories in the form of retro-cool photos with this gadget.Â
