The Coolest New Cameras Looks Like Your Grandpa's


My two new sidekicks, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7 and the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 are so fun and totally worth a blog shout out. They allow me to capture things for the blog and life in general and are also cute, vintage-looking accessories!

The Panasonic Lumix is like a mini DSLR camera with the capability to change lenses and take raw photos & HD videos - I shoot a lot of vlogs with it (example here) as well as photos (examples below). The touch screen is easy to use. My only gripe is that the screen doesn't pop out and swivel for shooting selfie style vlogs but you can't win them all!

The Instax is obviously a bit vintage in that it prints out polaroid-style instant prints of the pics. The modern twist to this little bugger is the different settings. You have the ability to adjust the look of the photos by selecting the different modes. My favorite mode is the L mode which really blows out the exposure and gives the photos that vintage look.

To watch more vlogs I've shot with the Lumix DMC-GF7, check out: 'Kate's Take: LA and NY Book Signings Video Diary' or 'Kate's Take: My 21 Day Cleanse' or 'Kate's Take: Come to France with Me! Part 2'




These photos were all taken with the Instax Mini Film Set!

These cameras are so cute the straps make it easy to wear them as accessories! I usually just carry one on my shoulder along with my mini purse that holds my phone and wallet.
