    It seems like just yesterday that we opened the New York City Lomography PopUpShop. Over the past month we've had so many great highlights, like the "Russia In New York" workshop, the big 10% of sale, and of course all the new and old friends stopping by to say hello or welcome us to the neighborhood.

    Party Captain NickyDigital Takes the Fisheye 2 for a Swim

    As you know, over the past year we've been bringing you the continuous adventures of "NickyDigital":http://nickydigital.com/, New York City's premiere scene-maker and party-hound, as he visits the best parties in NYC with a Lomography camera. Nicky has been out and about with several Lomographic cameras so far (see the links below for past Nicky Digital galleries). This time around, Nicky took a "Fisheye 2":http://shop.lomography.com/fisheye/ to the beach and on vacation. But of course, he also had it in hand when he dove into New York City's nightlife scene. With a 170-degree all-access pass to the action, Nicky returned from his "latest adventure":http://www.nickydigital.com/index.php?/gallery/album/C1143/ with these photos. Enjoy!

Here is a video of former USA intern "Gavin Thomas":http://beta.lomography.com/magazine/blog/2008/10/17/lc-a-lomo-intern-amigo-gavin-thomas shooting Christina Milian for a magazine cover! Gavin had the finest equipment to choose from, but couldn't resist pulling out his "LC-A+":http://shop.lomography.com/lca+/ and "Colorsplash flash":http://shop.lomography.com/colorsplashflash/ for a few shots as well.

    Wide Pan Pro II 140 Test Drive

    Recently we had the very first "Wide Pan Pro II 140":http://shop.lomography.com/widepan/ returned to our office, because there was a slight problem with the 2-second setting. The good news is that everything else on the camera worked perfectly. So before sending this camera back to the lomo-doctor for a check-up, I decided to take it out for a test-drive and see what all the fuss is about.

    A Lomo Lubitel 166+ Dream Team

    The "Lomo Lubitel 166+":http://www.lomography.com/lubitel+/ is a remarkably versatile camera. With the right film, some patience, and a cable release, you can pretty much shoot in any conditions, and not even be limited to one possible option to get the right exposure. Because of the multitude of possible settings, you can shoot long exposures at f-stop 16 or even 22 for great depth of field, or even shorten your exposure a bit at a smaller f-stop and take portraits in any light. The Lubitel+ doesn't mind, because it puts complete control in your hands in every way.

    Love & Sprockets:  A Lubitel 166+ Masterclass

    There is something so exciting about shooting 35mm film through a medium format camera when the sprocket holes on the film are exposed. The Diana+ can do it courtesy of the 35mm back. And with some tape and foam and rubber-bands you can Macgyver something effective on some other cameras. But I’ve never used a camera that shoots 35mm film through the sprocket holes with the quality and control of the Lomo Lubitel 166+.

    My Lubitel+ Story... A Walk in the Park

    Over the past couple of months, I have had the great privilege of testing out the new "Lomo Lubitel 166+":http://www.lomography.com/lubitel166+/ to get a feel for this amazing new camera. One of my favorite things to do, ever since I first discovered Lomography, has been to just go out walking with a camera and pockets stuffed with film, to just let the world come through my lens. It's a way of heightening your senses and really become attuned to the world around you. It has always been, for me, a very intimate approach to taking pictures, and if someone asked me, I'd say that's what Lomography is all about.

    Diana Takes Diana+ to Egypt... an Interview and Gallery

    Recently I was contacted by Diana Mulvihill, a photography student at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Diana was on her way to Egypt to do some work for a non-profit organization that helps children (and also wishes to remain anonymous for the purpose of this interview). Diana is trained as a documentary photographer and has worked for over a decade as a photojournalist. She had heard about her camera namesake, but had never shot with one. We thought it would be neat to see how the "Diana+":http://www.lomography.com/diana would hold up on a real photojournalism assignment, and hoped to capture some of the beauty and magic of this incredible destination. See Diana's Diana+ gallery below, and read an interview with this remarkable woman.
