There are loads of cameras with incredible capabilities out there that make getting images under even the most difficult conditions possible. However, could you spend just a few dollars on a camera and still take great images? This fun video shows what you can accomplish with a 30-year-old camera from a thrift store.
Coming to you from Willem Verbeeck, this fun video follows him as he shoots with an Olympus Infinity Stylus point and shoot camera he got for $3 at a thrift store. When it was launched in 1991, the Olympus Infinity Stylus was the smallest and lightest fully automatic 35mm camera in the world. The camera features a 35mm f/3.5 lens with three elements in three groups, a 0.4x viewfinder with autofocus frame and close-up correction marks, a focus range of 1.1 feet to infinity, a film speed range of ISO 50 to 3,200, automatic film loading, and automatic flash. And weighing in at just 6 oz (170 g), it is a ridiculously portable camera. I always enjoy these videos, as they challenge the photographer to forgo modern technology and really return to a purer form of photography. Check out the video above to see the images Verbeeck took, and maybe pull that old camera out of the boxes in your basement and go shoot!
