Proving that there’s still a lot of fun to be had with film and in-camera effects, Holga’s TIM or ‘Twin Image Maker’ camera lets you create half-frame exposures, color effects through flash filters, multi-exposure shots and yes, even 3D images, if you must. The camera’s smiling face includes its dual lenses for eyes, a grinning mouth for controlling the aperture and eyebrows which allow you to individually open and close each lens. Allowing you to create a different exposure on either side of the photo using its multiple exposure button.

TIM also comes with an optional flash with a set of permanently mounted color filters that can be rotated in place as needed. All-in-all you should have over 50 different “shooting experiments” and effects combinations using all of camera’s functionality, and yes, if you leave both of the lenses open while taking a photo they’re far enough apart to create a convincing 3D effect. But thankfully that’s not all this camera’s about. Available from Photojojo for $50 on its own, or $60 if you want the flash as well.
