Kodak Bullet

My Kodak Bullet camera review:

This about sums it up.

 

The state of this lens can only be described as wince-inducing.

 

 

I truly love the 127 film format. I always have. This camera takes surprisingly large (and kinda surprisingly clear) images on 127 roll film. I’m thinking that lens wasn’t quite locked into place. Hence, the crooked frame.

A MUCH better specimen. Bakelite hits those olfactory cells just so, doesn’t it? Gives me visions of muddy black and white negatives with lo-fi, unfussy images.

 

Lens extended.

 

Lens contracted. This camera has a great feel to it and is fun to mess with.

 

So what am I going to do with the wince-inducing model?  …

Gala-fy it! But I need to start with a glittery background first.

Really. How badly can I f it up? Really.

 

 

 

Stay tuned for the finished product!
