I’m Aragon Etzel from Memphis, TN and I collect old film cameras. I’ll make photos with anything that can hold film. I’ve had an affinity for cheap plastic toy cameras since I built my first TLR from a model kit in 2014. To that end, I’ve decided to use cheap plastic cameras for the 2020 Frugal Film Project. I’ll be using a Holga 120 CFN , an Instamatic X-30 with a Fakmatic 135-126 adapter, and as a backup, my beloved Bakelite Smena Symbol from the mysterious era of the former Soviet Union. If everything works the way I expect, it’ll be HP5/Lomo800 in the Holga and Kodak Tri-X/Ektar in the Kodak Instamatic. For more about me and photos I’ve taken, check out Aragon’s Eye
All 3 of these cameras were bought for under $50 including shipping. The Instamatic was $2.95 at a thrift store and the Fakmatic was on sale for $19.99 a while back on the FPP website. The Holga was $35 with free shipping, and the Smena was $25 + $20 shipping.
