Turns out you can get the plastic camera I've talked about here and here online at Urbanoutfitters. So thanks, Urban, for ruining my street cred. It came in pieces and I had some anxiety about losing or snapping the tiny plastic pieces, but was charmed by the idea of assembling the thing. (It was fine until I dropped it about the second day I had it, and broke the latch on the very back, exposing my roll of film. Now I keep it together with green electic tape. Maybe someday I'll upgrade to a rubber band.) So, for durability maybe you wouldn't want to invest in a $28 dollar plastic camera, but it's really lightweight and I sort of love the look without having to put anything into photoshop and add the effects I want to it. What I'm saying is for me it's worth it, and fun.
You can also get one of these there, and I want one after seeing it in action on Thanksgiving. So maybe instead of growing up to be a crazy cat lady, I'm turning into someone that hoards cameras of all kinds.
