On Saturday, the Household Cavalry chose to provide a guard of honour for a wedding couple lucky enough to have planned their wedding for the day the mounted regiment was in town. I photographed the event from the unique viewpoint of an Alpha 55 fitted with a Sigma 8-16mm superwide zoom, mounted on a 3.5m high Manfrotto stand with a 7″ Lilliput HDMI monitor connected on a long HDMI cable to compose and follow the action. The sound is just what the camera recorded, no external microphone was used.
Kodak is introducing a new Single Use Camera in a distinctive design especially for the wedding market. The KODAK Wedding Single Use Camera features elegant white roses on a silver body – a subtle, sophisticated design for any wedding. Combining style and quality, this latest addition to Kodak’s single use camera portfolio includes one of the best films available, Kodak’s 800–speed film, which provides unbeatable clarity and sharpness to produce the highest quality prints.
Single use cameras adorn wedding tables across Europe but many are low-cost products which match the decor but lead to disappointing prints,” said Oreste Maspes, Director of Kodak Film Group Europe. “Brides need products they can trust on their big day and, with the introduction of the KODAK Wedding Single Use Camera, brides and wedding planners need not choose between style and substance. The new designs are elegant and will look good on any table which means the happy couple can trust that Kodak has blended looks, convenience and the unbeatable quality of KODAK Film in one package.”
The new KODAK Wedding Single Use Camera is available for purchase in 10-pack increments exclusively online at http://www.kodak.com/go/SingleUseCamera through the Kodak Store. To mark the launch, Kodak is offering customers a saving of £40 on each 10 cameras pack (instead of £80, customers will only pay £40). The offer is available from June 12 until August 31, 2008.
In addition to the sophisticated new look, the camera boasts an easy-to-use design. Placed on tables at wedding receptions, guests of all ages can easily capture wonderfully informal shots that perfectly compliment the formal photographs of the day. Once printed, the newlyweds have a record of their special day through their loved ones’ eyes. Favourite candid images can be scanned and uploaded to a PC for inclusion in thank-you cards, photobooks and even canvases.
