“Japanese designer Hideki Ohmori says, “I get inspiration from imagining someone holding a camera, imagining that finally someone will get to see the world one wanted to see through the lens.” The roots of his Blackbird, Fly, a twin-lens reflex camera, harken back to the 1920s. One lens is used to expose the film, and the other is used like a viewfinder. Unlike most twin-lens reflex cameras, however, Blackbird, Fly doesn’t require 120mm film-it uses more readily available 35mm film. Pictures may be taken two different ways (at waist level, or through the sportsfinder at eye level), and framed three ways: in standard 35mm format (24×36), or use the provided mask to take square pictures in 24×24 or the extra-large 36×36 size.

For daytime shooting, you can alternate between apertures f/7 and f/11, with a shutter speed of 1/125. At night, you can switch the shutter to B-mode to let in as much light as you might need, or you can also attach a flash for even more possibilities. Variable focusing, from 0.8 meters (2.6 feet), makes for a sharp subject. The Blackbird fly uses a wide-angle 33mm lens and also allows you to take multiple exposures on the same frame. Includes camera strap and lens cap strap, instruction manual, warranty card, and two mask frames.

Plastic. 5″ tall x 3″ wide x 3.25″ deep.
8″ tall x 7.25″ wide photo book also available for $14.”
