We know you’ve all been starved of Lomography love up in the north so because we’re THAT nice we’re setting up camp in Manchester’s Northern Quarter (well where else would we plonk our first store north of the Watford Gap, eh?). Where exactly is yet to be revealed…
We will keep you posted with all the important news and dates as they come through, but for now you’re just going to have to sit tight and try not to scream too loudly with excitement while we get everything ready (and finalise the plans!)
At least now you know where you can buy all your Christmas presents this year!

This new Petzval lens is a revival of a lens that was created in the 19th century. The optics has come to life again with the help of a crowdfunding website and all the backers that have supported this project. The production is done by one of Russia’s lens companies – Zenit. We lent out our prototype Petzval lens to DC Watch, one of the largest digital camera online magazines in Japan. Check out their results after the jump.
