    For grins and giggles...I threw some money at this Kickstarter project. I'm probably insane but for the price ($72) I figure what the hell. Seems like it might be fun. I enjoy using my Diana f+ with Instax back, so figure that this would be similar, only straight to digital - no need to scan!

    I hope it's better than the Minox DCC14 toy camera I bought. The Minox can get a decent capture only when the lighting is perfectly even across the frame. Any shaded areas reproduce as noise only.

    I figure I have very little to lose. I've spent more money one one meal!

    I think that the fact that it has f/2.8 and f/8 apertures speak to versatility. Can't speak to the lenses, but we are talking lo-fi photography here.
