I'm thinking about the aiptek pencam mega. I've seen erin take some really nice photos with hers. i'm surprised at the nice quality of the images and the good resolution. There is some third party driver you can buy apparently to work with OS X. Register it for Only $9.95, available here.
I'm mainly interested in having a small-sized camera to take everywhere. The Sidekick photos are OK for hiptopnation and novelty photos, but they're no good for photos I'd want to post to a weblog. The Lomo and my Nikon Coolpix 880 are great for high quality photos that I want to make prints of, but they're hard to carry around in a pair of shorts or for a quick jaunt around town. The Lomo is the easier of the two, but the cost of getting film developed is a deterrent. So I'm looking at the pencam.
More about pencams on pencam.org and Kungfugrippe has a great review with sample photos. hencio and elvisthefish are a couple cool pencam galleries I've looked at. And finally, there's the pencam webring.
I am thinking of using iView Media Pro instead of iPhoto. iPhoto is really great, but I want to be able to make photo albums without going to Photoshop and quickly print single photos without using my Pictures n Portraits app.
I never tried a Holga before. They're inexpensive, but produce nice square photos. Maybe I'll see one in a flea market one day.
Mike pointed to Thomas Hudson Reeve's site. Reeve makes origami pinhole cameras that produce magnificent images on the inner surfaces of the box with an ethereal quality. Really beautiful. I've been trying to do some origami lately since Renee got Lorenzo an origami book for Christmas. Making pinhole cameras looks like a fun craft project for Lorenzo and I to do when he gets older. A nice way to introduce Lorenzo to photography.
I'd never heard of Fotolog until Matt pointed to it today to balance out all the HipTopNation blogging. Really awesome. I spent a while looking at the excellent photos taken by eshepard in Brooklyn. Inspires me to start documenting. Have done a little in Sunset Park, but wasn't sure where I should blog the images.
My Nikon Coolpix 880 suddenly started giving system errors that render the camera unusable. Wierd that it happened on the same day the Lomo arrived. I'm hoping there's some promise in the firmware update that's supposed to fix a system error that had to do with momentary power outages when you remove the battery. I hope it fixes it, because that camera takes some damned good pictures and was a hell of a lot of money.
Update: Apparently this error is caused by having dead battery or something. I fixed by leaving the battery out over night. Next day it worked as usual.
