Hey Argus!

I’m currently debating which “toy camera” to buy. I really want to try out a photography method called TTV. It’s the process in which you take an old vintage or antique camera and shoot through that with your DSLR camera. You can get amazing photographs this way that are completely original and have quirks that are hard to come by through only using your DSLR or even in Photoshop. Shimelle wrote a great post about this process that you can read here.

So, after looking at my favorite small business website, Etsy, here are some options that I am looking at. Keep in mind that the camera doesn’t necessarily need to be in working order, just good enough so the view through the view finder is clear enough and the view finder is large enough to take a picture of.  Granted it would be GREAT if the camera still worked but that is a bit hard to come by.

Any opinions? Ideas? Suggestions?
