Introducing the 35mm Whisky Glass

After the success of our 35mm Pint Glass, we knew we had to make something for our Bourbon, Scotch and Whiskey fans. Today, we are introducing the 35mm Whisky Glass. Just like our Pint Glasses, these are individually made by hand in the USA using a patented process that permanently embeds the film canister into each glass.  They're the ultimate gift for the photographer who enjoys whisky, whether it's Single-Malt Scotch, Bourbon, Tennesseee Whiskey, or anything else.     These 11oz Glasses come in various film styles, including films from Kodak, Ilford, Fuji and more.  We use real 35mm film canisters and permanently embed them into the glass forever. You would have to break the glass to get the canister out - they're in there for...

Introducing The 35mm Pint Glass

At TogTees, we're always trying to make something special. This time, we're pretty sure we succeeded. Today, we're excited to introduce one of our most unique creations to date - the 35mm Pint Glass.  These 16oz Pint Glasses are individually hand-made in the USA using a patented process. Each glass has a genuine 35mm film canister permanently embedded in it by hand.  We have several different options available, including Kodak, Ilford, Fuji, Cinestill and other film canisters.  It took months of designing, testing and prototyping to make these unique glasses and ensure they were up to our high standards.  The film canister is permanently embedded in each glass, and won't come out (you'd have to break the glass to get it...

The Twin Lens Reflex Wood Camera

By now you've probably heard the story of the 35mm Wood Camera, as it was one of our most-read and shared pieces ever.  And for good reason: the story is unique, interesting, and - like most good things in photography- came somewhat unexpectedly.  The truth is that as soon as we saw the finished product, we were already thinking about what to do next. Before we launched the 35mm Wood Camera to the world, before we heard from people around the world how beautiful they were, and before they all sold out, we were already planning our next big move.  That move was the TLR Wood Camera...

New Design Alert! The AE-1 Tee

The AE-1 Film SLR Tee Every film enthusiast is familiar with this Single Lens Reflex camera, and you might even have seen one in a box in your grandpa's house somewhere.  Wikipedia calls the Canon AE-1 "a historically significant SLR". And if it's on the internet, it must be true.  Well actually, in this case it is true. The AE-1 was the very first microprocessor-equipped SLR camera, which sort of makes it like the ENIAC of SLR cameras. It was introduced in April 1976 and heralded the start of a complete overhaul of Canon's SLR line that was to continue with the related AT-1, A-1, AV-1 AE-1 Program and AL-1.  The AE-1 was manufactured and sold until 1984 (hmm...) and during that...
