Celebrating Film Photography: “Camera Style” Websites Worldwide

tokyo camera style by John Sypal (see our interview with him) is a popular website documenting the analog camera culture in Tokyo, Japan by sharing photographs of cameras being used on the streets — it’s like The Sartorialist except for cameras instead of fashion. If you’re a fan of the site and love browsing photos of old school cameras people use, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a number of similar websites for other cities and places around the world.

Here’s a running list of places with similar sites inspired by tokyo camera style:

If you know of any others, leave a comment and we’ll update the list! You can also easily start one for your city by starting a website (perhaps using tumblr) and then photographing cameras you see while walking the streets.

    Nice write-up.  I’m happy that TCS has inspired others to celebrate analog photography.  
    The more ________ camera style sites, the merrier!

    All of these websites look like digital photos of people holding film cameras. About as interesting as watching paint dry.
