The new Alfie TYCH camera is half frame which means you get more than 72 images per roll of film. A selection of built-in lenses allow for endless creativitiy and you can even take things further by trying multiple exposures, diptychs and panoramas. Automatic exposure mode lets you just point and shoot with a manual mode that give full control no matter what film you choose. The battery is also USB rechargeable for convenience and a near silent shutter makes street photography a breeze.
Dave Faulkner, owner of Alfie Cameras says, “I’ve taken the things I wanted to see in a half frame camera and squeezed them in to a compact design. The Aflie TYCH combines the benefits of modern electronics with the beauty of analogue photography.”
Beta testers will be asked to provide feedback on the camera and help refine the product details ahead of the official launch. If you are interested in becoming a Beta tester you are requested to register your details on the Alfie Cameras website.
