Lomo Redscale

Olympus AF-1 Twin

I can’t remember where I got this camera now but it is pretty handy and claims to be weatherproof. – not fully sure what kind of weather this means but I am assuming it means rain.

It has two lenses, one is a 35mm F3.5 and the other a 70mm F6.3.  It is a pretty cool little feature as it means you don’t have a zoom lens on the camera but two completely individual lenses which you switch between using a little button on the top of the camera.

Here are some photos I tested the camera with using some VERY expired and badly stored Lomo Redscale.

It is now broken – the lens door which slides open and activates the camera had a tiny spring fall out of it the other day and in order to take a photo I have to squeeze the camera hard.  It’s quite strange and I am not sure if I am going to bother putting another roll of film into it.
