In Ulm, around Ulm, and in Ulm around…

Where are you all? This time I made a stop in Ulm.

Ulm is on the Danube at the southeastern edge of the Swabian Alb on the border with Bavaria, the university town in Baden-Württemberg. The city has about 119.000 inhabitants.

The city is known for its gothic cathedral, whose bell tower with 161.53 meters is the highest in the world. But that’s not all…

See by yourself!

One autumn day in Meersburg

This weekend we have decided to go to Meersburg. Meersburg is a town of Baden-Württemberg in the southwest of Germany at the Lake of Constance. It is famous for its charming medieval city.

We love to drive around, always looking for great designs. Especially in autumn the colors are just amazing!

Pleasant weather, warm sunset and a lot of people.

This was the result…

Have fun watching!

FUJIFILM INSTAX MINI 8

FUJIFILM INSTAX MINI 8

Hello beatiful people,

when I hear Polaroid I’m always thinking about this american refrigerators with a lots of hanging polaroid photos. A Dream! It could be my apartment.

For a long time I wanted an instant camera like this old polaroids. Do you remember? I find them so original and classy.

As a photographer, I like to try new techniques and so I opted for the Instax Mini 8 Fujifilm.

I bought my Instax via Internet for 72 €. I chose the color black, but there are many , great colors.

The package contains:

1 Instant camera
1 Strap
2 Batteries LR6
1 Instruction manual

This camera requires instant color film, make sure that only (instax mini) color film is used.

Unfortunately, the film is not in the price .You have to buy it separately. Furthermore it‘s not cheap, I paid 20€ for 2×10.

Picture size: 62 mm x 46 mm.

About 100 pictures (10 packs) can be taken with new batteries.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When my package arrived I could immediately get started. Put in the batteries and the film and let’s go!It is very easy to use. Choose your motive, keep the right distance and click!
At next the image will be developed, it usually takes 3-5 minutes until it is completely visible.

This camera automatically determines and informs the best brigthness for taking a picture. When taking a picture, point the lens at the center of the subject to measure the subject brigthness. Turn the dial while keeping the lens pointed at the subject.

On the back you can see how many pictures are still available.

For more information you can read the manual.

IS AN INSTANT CAMERA STILL WORTH TODAY?

Actually, it’s not very useful in today’s technology to select an instant camera. The film is expensive, you‘re limited in taking pictures and the quality is not the best. But still I want to say that it has its charm. The white border, the joy to see the picture and the retro style turns the instant camera into something special. For those who want to make original/different images, like me, it is just the right camera.

WOULD YOU BUY IT AGAIN? 

Yes, definitely. Despite the expensive film price I would buy it again. For me it‘s the camera for special occasions. Of course I will not use it every day like my Canon but that’s what makes the instant camera so special don’t you think so? I think nowadays you forget the value of a photography by the number of photos you can take unlimited. With an instant camera it doesn’t work. But even that is so beautiful to me about it.

The photography gets a completely different value.
