I like shooting with my modified Instax Mini 70 as it is so light and convenient to carry around. Its outlook is modern yet its pictures looks old, thanks to the Ross London F3.8 lens.
Refer to “Instax Mini 70 modification” for more details on the camera.
Its light size means it doesn’t raise undue attention when I was shooting. I tried to take pictures in the metro and it is just perfect. The lens glass was old. It has some interesting characteristics under the sunlight. It looks a bit yellowish in some pictures. I’m not entirely sure it is purely due to the lens, or because the films are old.
Note that the left picture has the vintage yellowish colour.
I’m using F4, 1/25s to take this pictures. If it is the original Instax Mini 70, it will shoot with flash light and the colour will look very unnatural. Of course, you will also raise the attention of the passengers.
Shooting in the metro. Still go unnoticed.
It is one of my favorite place in HK. The Star Ferry and the clock tower in Tsim Sha Tsui.
