Blackbird Fly – modern-day Rolleiflex lookalike for retro photography


Apparently, film-based photography is big news in Japan, particularly the Lomography range of cameras. So it’s no surprise to see the country producing its own variations – like the Blackbird Fly from Superheadz.

Every bit as stylish as the Lomo cameras, if not more so, this is a twin-lens camera based on the classic Rolleiflex, complete with trademark top-down viewer. The photos are distinctly old school too – square snaps shot on 35mm film.

Available soon in limited quantities and a range of colours, they should sell for $100. which is around £50. Sounds a bargain to me.
