Konica EE-Matic 260 & Ilford Sportsman C – Reviving two Instamatic Cameras – by Tobias Eriksson
The Instamatic cameras are anachronisms. The bloated cameras are detested plastic garbage these days. The film format they were designed for is not manufactured any more. Did conditions like that ever stop me from using cameras? I’ve chosen these two cameras – Ilford Sportsman C (below) and Konica EE-Matic 260 (above) because I like the way they look – and also in the case of the Konica the fact that it has an advanced exposure system and a rangefinder (accurate focusing). I also like the resulting square format of the photographs.
