130209 tilt shift melbourne action, a set on Flickr.
Purchased a little tilt shift point and shoot camera from Photojojo a couple of months ago. This was my first real crack at it. I actually thought I had acquired a dud piece of gear, but I clearly didn’t understand how to use it. You really need to get up high and make sure that subjects are quite small.
I often buy cheap toy versions of gear to see if I like them. Before I bought a medium format camera, I had a couple of Holgas. Before the Xpan came the Sprocket Rocket.
I have always had a hankering for a tilt shift lens but they are uber pricey. This little camera delivers the raw effect that I love – the virtual miniaturisation of the subjects – for the cost of a cheap point and shoot.
You can get one here if you so desire….
