From records to cassettes to CDs and finally the mp3, how we store music has evolved, but the process of making a record has stayed basically the same since the early 1900s. With this in mind, a group of people is bringing record manufacturing out of the dark ages and into the 21st century.

The original Ilford Sprite 35 was released in the 1960s and meant as an entry-level camera for those who wanted more of a point-and-shoot experience than more advanced models afforded. The Ilford Sprite 35-II updates the idea for the modern age. It has a fixed-focus, single-element f/9 31mm lens, a fixed shutter speed of 1/120s, and a built-in flash for low-light closeups. As a result, all the user needs to do is load a roll of film, hit the shutter button, and press the lever to move the film forward. In doing so, it recaptures the fun of disposable cameras but without the waste, and restores that feeling of anticipation as you wait to get the developed prints returned. Available in black or silver, it's compatible with both color and B&W 35mm film.
