Of Retro and Vintage, True and Fake, in the World of Digital Photo

Tue, May 26, 2015 No Comments

Designed as retro. Styled as retro. Controlled as retro. Gripped as retro. Vintage. All-out vintage. The newest, poshest digital camera looking like a one-dollar Kodak point-and-shoot, a contemporary of pin-up posters, Ford T or, at least, Elvis and Woodstock festivals.
