While I was walking around in Chungmuro with John, we found this random toy camera shop called Toy Camera. Since the store is off the main street and also on the third floor on a rustic building, it might not be easy to locate if you don’t try hard enough, however, you’re good to go as soon as you see this door with a Lomo sign.
I’ve had a few toy cameras around but never had one I got super excited about. Diana+ was close enough but I never got to learn how to take decent shots with it. Then I thought I would give a try to Holga GCFN, the one with a glass lens unlike most of the toy cameras with plastic lenses. I was quite excited when I learned this shop had it, and had to go back to get one a few weeks later.
This shop has an extensive list of toy cameras as well as some nice films at good prices. If you’re into photography and look for some toys to play with, go to Chungmuro and check out this store. Definitely worth a try. The marketing manager of this shop, Justin, is a friendly guy and he speaks fairly good English as well so you will be fine even if you don’t speak Korean.
The address is 3F, 58-2, Chungmuro 3-ga, Jung-gu, Seoul and the phone number is +82(2)2285.5640.
