Harinezumi 2 - My New Toy

Got this in Tokyo. This is essentially a digital lomo camera. I resisted getting a lomo camera due to my laziness to develop analogue photos. This baby not only takes photos, but also video and even in black and white. At 15,750 yen (173 USD, 240 SGD), they are not cheap for a 3 megapixel camera or a 640x480 video camera (with sound).

The convenience of digital is enough to justify the cost. Besides, converting a normal photo to lomo just isn't the same.

That said, it is interesting how a photography movement stems from a camera defect.
