TIM // part one

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Around a year and a half ago I bought this snazzy camera, TIM, from photojojo. I took a bunch of pictures but never finished the roll and it sat on the shelf for a while (yeah, this is the story of my life!) When my 60D died and I got all reacquainted with film I picked TIM back up and finished the roll and shot another. And by finished - I mean that I literally shot one picture. Good job leaving one picture on a roll, Kaylah! First I'll tell you a little bit about TIM and then I'll show you the photos!
TIM shoots half frame photos. By closing one eye taking a photo, closing up that eye, opening the other and shooting again before advancing the film you'll get two pictures on one print. It takes regular 35mm film so there is no fussing with sending it out to get it developed if you don't want to. It's fairly simple to use! By leaving both eyes open at the same time and taking a shot you get two of the thing on the print except they're from slightly different angles - which gives you a 3D image. (You can learn how to view it using photojojo's tutorial)
And...this ultra creepy one of Kevin. This is that one picture that I needed to finish off the old roll. I have no idea how that happened but I'm pretty sure we both laughed for about ten minutes straight when we saw it.
I'm not a massive fan of flash photos or really any artificial lighting in photos at all but these are cool enough that it makes me want to play with TIM more! I'll be back later to show you some more photos from TIM. Just a few but they're a lot more recent and in my opinion, way cooler!

  3. That's such a fun camera! I like how the filters are attached, and you can just flip through them. Super handy! They turned out great! :D I just bought an oktomat and the pictures turned out way better than I expected. I'd not used a plastic camera since I was a kid!

  7. I hate flash photography on my SLR, but something about flash photos when I was a kid was cool. I like the way it works with those cheap junked up cameras. And these pictures honestly remind me of something taken back in 89'.

  9. Do you get your film developed to a cd? Or do you just scan the prints? I have a pretty decent film camera, but Im having a hard time finding a place that will just scan the film right to a disc. Just curious! Thanks!
