This must be one of the craziest monochromatic emulsions I came across with. Not only the title is a promise of an adventure, but the pictures are as well. In most black and white films that I have used, objects in the distance become darker. With the Eagle, the darkness flies away. In fact, it's the other way around. The further the object is away from the lens, the brighter it is.

Christmas is a good opportunity to take some bokehs, since there are plenty of lights to take pictures of. Here is a simple way to generate gorgeous light bokehs, using your Lomo LC-A+.
Long exposures is an old trick that one sees often. The results always have this "wow" effect and the first question that always pops in your head is “how long was this exposure?” The LC-A+ (also applies to the LC-A) has the edge for low-light photography because of it's light metering. But in this case, one has to "deceive" the light meter.
Why is it the long-lost black and white film? Because there's no more of this brilliant film in Indonesia! I bought this film for the first time in 2008 and from a friend who stayed in Surabaya so he had to send the films to Bandung. I just can't find any ERA Shantou these days. I will remember this film always.
