Craftzine has a step-by-step tutorial teaching how to turn your unwanted 35mm film into an uber-geeky necklace. Not sure how comfortable wearing it would be, but if you’re the type that’s constantly looking for new levels of photo geekiness, this one’s for you.
Tina Roth Eisenberg, AKA swissmiss, has just launched an online temporary tattoo store called Tattly. Of the small selection currently offered, two of them are designed for photo geeks: Aperture and Instant Camera. You can pick up a pair of either tatt for $5 with free shipping in the US. Hopefully the prices will come down a bit if the store becomes popular.
Now here’s a person who really believes in the power of photography.

Here’s a neat necklace for photo geeks — it’s a 35mm “cropper” that you can use to see what a scene would look like in a photograph. There’s even rule of thirds lines built into it. They’re handmade, crafted in Korea, and cost $49 over on Etsy. If you want an equally geeky tool without paying such a ridiculous price, you can punch the film out of a 35mm slide and use that.
We’ve seen camera shaped pendants before, but these new Camera Lingo Necklaces definitely take you into uncharted levels of geekiness. Each one has a “secret code word” that will be appreciated by other photo enthusiasts, but may befuddle ordinary, unenlightened (no pun intended) folk. They come in four colors and designs — JPEG, CR2, NEF, and a no-flash symbol — and cost $20 bucks each over at Photojojo.
What would a calendar look like if the world was run by photography geeks? Photographer David Schloss woke up one morning with the idea of creating such a calendar, with days being incremented by 1/3 f/stops, and the year being ISO 2000. He’s also selling them as t-shirts for $15 a pop over on Mac Create.
If the first level of photo-geekiness is wearing USB cufflinks, and the second level is wearing camera cufflinks, then these mode dial cufflinks must be level three. Boy are these geeky. You can pick them for $50 on Amazon.
