    I' hear a lot that the magic is in the photographer, and not the camera. So.. Do you guys have any interesting/fascinating/great shots taken with cheap equipment?

    When I say cheap, I mean like Game Boy Cameras, photo booths, disposables, cellphone cameras. That sort of stuff.

    I really don't much care for these but I guess there was a little something about each that appealed to me. Hmm? I think these were all taken the same day.

    I like 2, 3 and 4 tmpadmin. They look great. They look like they were taken in the 50's.
    And great gratuitous clevage shot Core. :lol:

    Do four year old £50 second hand digital cameras count as cheap? If so, I've got loads that I could post. :mrgreen:

    I took this with a camera I got at a 99 cent only store. The film and the camera combined cost me $1.98US There was no flash, it had a crank wind just like the disposables......it was definately cheap equipment. I was testing one out to see if they did any good for the table cameras at a wedding. Needless to say they didn't pass the test, but this is 2 years old.

    Arguably the most random umbrella I've ever come across...at the Getty at least.
