    The Minolta X-570

    The Minolta X-570 was introduced in April of 1983. It sold as a less expensive model than the previous X-700. The X-570 is loaded with features that the X-700 didn't have making it ideal for beginning photographers. It only shoots 35mm film but works well with anything you load into it. I chose to add this camera to my arsenal because it is versatile and user-friendly. Because of these qualities, it would make an awesome addition to any Lomographer's collection!

    Kentmere Black and White Film (400 iso, 35mm) User-Review

    Can we say, "bargain?" How about, "a whole lot of bang for the buck?" That is exactly what you'll get when you try out Kentmere Black and White film! I have used the 400 ISO speed film which is available in the Lomography online store for an incredible five Dollars/Euros/Pounds. I've also seen it in camera shops in America for even less! This is now a mainstay in my camera bag and thanks to its great price and high quality, it will be there for a long time.

    Versatile Provia: Fuji Provia (120, 100ISO) User-Review

    As I am only entering my 10th month of shooting with my Holga, I consider myself to be a rookie of sorts. It didn't take me long, however, to discover the surreal and impossible beauty of slide film.

    We all know the rule - use higher ISO films in less light and lower ISO films in more light. But aren't rules made to be broken? If you want a film that offers a huge range of color and flexibility in varied lighting situations despite its low ISO - then Kodak Ektar is it!
