Kodak Star 535 Review

Ever wonder what it's like to take pictures with a really awful 35mm camera from the early 1990s?  Well wonder no more, and even better, I'll save you the $5 you would've spent finding out!

They're pretty inexpensive on ebay; get one for about $5-15 plus shipping.

Although not really a 're-post' to this site, I did freshen it up by formatting the article properly, adding a couple more large images, making some corrections based on additional use, and added some links for the camera, and 620 film, which is making a comeback!
