In an age where things are increasingly digital, it’s nice to take a step back to analog once and a while. Designed from the ground up by Superheadz of Japan, the Blackbird uses 35mm film and features a 33mm lens with focal adjustment. Other features include two exposure settings (F7/F11), two shutter speeds, and a hot shoe. Also included are two masks for cropping the film (normal 24 x 36, square 24 x 24). Without a mask, the image exposes over the edge, into the film perforations. Superheadz added a sports viewfinder on top for quick shots, but the real pleasure of the Blackbird is holding at your waist, looking down, and taking your time to shoot. Available here.
