Out of everything I have read on this camera, I am impressed with the quality of the pictures created, the design of the camera. Most of the reviews I found on this camera say this is a great camera.
For me, I grew up using film cameras and currently I collect and use vintage cameras during some of my photo walks. This camera has the looks of an old bellows style camera and the quality of images captured with this great camera. If you are into lomography or you like shooting with film, this camera looks to be a great fit for those looking for a modern take on vintage analog cameras.
