I bought this Fuji Discovery 90 in a photography store in Mexico City. It was brand new and really cheap, even for a plastic point and shoot camera from the mid 90s. It came in it’s original box, with it’s manual and a nice green soft case. I wanted a camera for snapshots when there is not much time to think before taking the picture.
The Drop-in loading, auto focus, auto exposure, auto rewind and auto flash make the camera really easy to use. It also has a macro function (23 1/2 inches / 60cm) and it works with two AA batteries. There is only two things that I don’t like about it: Sometimes it takes more than a second to take the picture after pressing the shutter button and the fact that you can’t disable the auto flash.
I’m a Mexican living in Germany since 2014 and recently had the chance to return to my country for a few months. After those years living abroad, it was really nice to travel around my homeland again. Soon I will return to Europe because of my work and this time I have no idea when I will be coming back. Nevertheless I’m taking with me great memories, a lot of pictures, a couple of new cameras and a few extra pounds on my body for eating a lot of delicious mexican food.
Here is a selection of portraits of family, friends and random people that I made in Mexiko over the last months. I used either Kodak Gold 200 or Agfa Vista Plus 200 film.
