5 Frames with a Samsung AF Slim

January 31, 2018

Another 5 frames post looking back at a past review this time the Samsung AF Slim. It’s funny dredging up this old content, especially looking at shots taken with point & shoot cameras. I haven’t shoot one in anger for ages, and actually I really miss the process. There’s something really satisfying about shooting such basic cameras that produce such awesome results as the likes of the Samsung AF Slim.

My experience with the AF Slim was entirely tainted by the merit of it being completely buggered, but somehow that made it all the more satisfying.

I’ve actually looked for another less buggered copy of one of these cameras, or indeed one of the Rollei Prego AF cameras that I now know are based around the same internals – unfortunately the second hand value of point & shoots has risen so much that the odd one of either of these cameras I have found is so expensive that the “fun” would be taken out of buying and shooting it. If you do see one cheap, buy it without hesitation – the results are quite astonishing!

    Great images! I have both an AF Slim and the Rollei Prego AF you mentioned. Neither camera is ever far from my hand while traveling.

      I’ve been after a Prego since even before I had the AF slim – just can’t find one……

    It’s too bad the only version I’ve been able to find (and two, for that matter) are the “red eye” version, which YOU CANT TURN THE FLASH OFF!? How dumb is that?

    Great photos!

      It annoys me that such a camera was even made!

    I picked both up from the same sale in a film gear group on Fb for a song about a year and a half ago. I subsequently broke the film door latch hook, and have resorted to gaffer tape and flicking the door switch to tell the camera it’s been loaded. Works like a charm every time but not the most pristine body anymore, though the the tape helps give it a bit more much needed grip.
