Shilin Official Residence Park.

A few weeks ago, we made an unplanned visit to the Shilin Official Residence park because the weather was so beautiful (after being dreary for a long time) it would have been a sin to stay at home. I brought my UWS out for some trigger-happy fun; this thing simply gets no time at all during cold winter months! I used a roll of ISO800 film this time and although I think the results are similar to those produced on ISO400 film, the pictures do have a tendency to get a little overexposed under harsh sunlight. Funny light swirls turned up in a few of them and as with most experiences I’ve had with toy cameras, the ones with the element of surprise become the ones you keeping going back to look at.

  1. Katie! You’re the only other person I’ve seen with the swirls on their superheadz results too. I think I figured out what causes it – I always have mine swinging from my wrist and I think the motion of it shifts the shutter a little, allowing small amounts of light in whilst its swinging, though I havent tested that theory yet… i love the swirls personally :)

    1. Hi Rhianne,

      That sounds totally possible, I swing mine from my wrist ALL THE TIME! What occurred to me was that it happened to pictures randomly, not in any order so I thought that was bizarre. Your theory sounds about right to me, I might just swing it on purpose the next time I use it! :D
