For Fall/Winter 2011, Carhartt releases the “Blackbird Fly” camera in collaboration with Japanese company PowerShovel. 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 modeled after the classic twin-lens medium format Rolleiflex camera, a double-barrel 35mm film camera used by Andy Warhol and James Dean. This Carhartt version is released in a nice military green, with a casing made from high-quality plastics and features the following technical stats: Lens: f/ 33mm/photo lens, Shutter speed: 1/125, Aperture: f7 (cloudy) f11 (fine weather), Focus: visual distance estimated measurement (0.8/1.5/2/2.5/3/4/5/10/∞), Weight: body 210g/case 30g, Film type: 135 (35mm).
