For the Fall/Winter season 2011 Carhartt have created this Blackbird Fly camera in collaboration with PowerShovel. Japanese company PowerShovel was founded for one reason only: a sheer passion for analogue photography. For Carhartt they are now producing one of their most beautiful models – the Blackbird Fly – in a distinctively Carhartt design.
The Blackbird Fly is modelled on the classic twin-lens medium format camera Rolleiflex, the double-barrel 35-mm-film camera used by Andy Warhol and James Dean. Its old-fashioned style is guaranteed to bring the pleasure of analogue photography back to every vintage enthusiast. The Carhartt version is released in a nice military green. The camera’s casing is made from high-quality plastics.
