Mercedes-Benz V-Class x Fuji Instax

Take V-Class, add three guys, some photo gear, three small kegs of beer (DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE) and one idea. The idea was to take the V-Class put a mobile photo-studio in it and offer people free beer in exchange for a portrait in the car. Let them tell us their first impressions of this new model and just have a good time. So far, so good. On our way from Hamburg to Sylt we put on the stickers we had made for the occasion and decided to head out directly to Sylt instead of stopping somewhere in between and…

Gear Review – Fuji Instax

Lomo?! the iPhone, Hipstamatic, Instagram… FILM IS DEAD is what they kept saying and most of us believing. Back in the day. You know?! When we were young.

Somehow everything in the oldschool film photography realm dies and is reincarnated somehow… Polaroid to the Impossible project, filmscanners to iPhone to Polaroid scanners and the list seems to be endless. Yes everyone cries “HIPSTER!” when someone in a plaid shirt with a Lomo or Polaroid…

LeWeb 2012 – The Instax Gallery

I think I would mostly recommend the Instax Mini, just because it is easier to handle. I will write a little review about both cameras soon too, and there will be more photos…

#mbrt13 – rollin rollin rollin

It is our third day and we are on the Interstate 40 towards Amarillo as I am writing this post. I wanted to post way before this post, but we have been quite busy and get less sleep than anticipated, so the time that I am awake after driving the legs of our road trip I mostly use for importing and backing up all the footage. If you want to stay completely up to date you should check my Twitter, Flickr and YouTube channel as I post to those daily and from the road. Our connectivity is not always given,…
