In addition to vintage appeal, authentic objects like Low-fidelity Holga, Polaroid, or fisheye film cameras are the favorite of any hipster.
These old cameras are used with different purposes: some use them to capture different moments of their daily urban routine habits and trips, others to take pictures of their hobbies, others for their art projects, and others just to decorate their rooms.
