The Blackbird Fly is a successor to a classic and follows on from the “Holga” and the “Diana”, both of which have established a cult following for ‘shooting from the hip’ photography. The Blackbird Fly is a TLR (Twin Lens Reflex) camera, meaning that there are two objective lenses: One for taking the photograph, and one for the waist-level viewfinder.
Behind the viewfinder lens is a mirror at a 45-degree angle (hence the term reflex), which reflects upwards through a matter focusing screen surrounded by a hood/enclosure used to block some light and reduce reflection on the screen. This creates an image on the screen identical to what will be captured on film through the photographic lens.
This camera uses 35mm film as compared to most other TLR cameras that use 120 format film. Although 120 film is very cool, it can be much harder to find and even harder to get developed.
With 35mm film you can just drop it off at the nearest 1-hour photo! It has 3 formats!
You can shoot in 3 formats (using provided masks): normal 35mm (24mm x 36mm), square format (24mm x 24mm), and large square format (36mm x 36mm).
The Blackbird, Fly is an amazing TLR for hobbyists to creative professionals to everyone in between.
