We love crafty people and the crafty projects that they do. Kevin over at TheFilmme hacked his TLR to take Fujifilm Instax images. The way to do this is by using a black film changing bag, either the Instax adapter for the Lomography LC-A+ or an Instax camera, and a Rolleicord Plate Adapter. The entire hack requires removal of the camera back and placing the film very securely and safely in the plate adapter–hopefully within a dark room or changing bag if you’re that skilled.
The results are pretty darn cool if you nail them correctly. Check out the Google Translation if you’re interested.

First a Ferrari, and now beer. What on earth does this have to do with photokina? Well, every day at 3 p.m. the guys from Peak Design (read more on their awesome products below) were giving out Freibier. This was their PR strategy, and you can bet it was well received!
This is part six of our photokina 2012 report, with a main focus on SLR Magic, the small lens maker from Hong Kong that has come up with a lot of amazing products in the last two years.

We tend to talk about lots of cameras for street photography; but none are as unique as the Rollei Rolleiflex MiniDigi. As a pint sized camera with a pint sized sensor, and stunningly retro good looks, what else makes this little cam so special?
