If you have a TLR camera you can try this simple trick, that can help you to focus more easily. And if you like, you can share this content with your friends.
From a complicated, time-consuming and expensive process to the simple press of a button, photography has come a very long way since the first cameras came along in the early 1800’s.

With retro becoming cool again, we are seeing more and more instant cameras coming into the market. The InstantFlex TL70 would have been just another camera in that pile except for the fact that it is a Twin Lens Reflex camera.
The camera is beautifully designed to look like a Rolleiflex, and it uses the same diffusion screen mechanism to frame and focus your shots.
It occurred to me recently that I’ve been a regular contributor here at DIY Photography for four months, and I’ve yet to actually write anything DIY-related.

This particular man-cub is one of the most thoughtful people I know, which is one of the reasons he gets so pissed off every year around the holidays and my birthday over the high price of camera-related goodies. He wants to do something nice and can’t afford it. This year, though, he was bound and determined, and let me tell you– that kid of mine struck gold. For about twenty bucks, he got me the Recesky TLR DIY Camera Kit.
