With the launch of the LomoKino, our new analogue movie camera, we decided to delve into the film archives to find some of the earliest examples of stop motion cinema- Produced over 100 years ago, it’s amazing how well these short films have stood the test of time – We are so excited to see what stop motion movies you can produce with the LomoKino in the 21st century!
When the movie camera was first invented, pioneering directors experimented withal kinds of techniques – Whilst movie-making methods such as stop motion are familiar to us all nowadays, these inventive early directors were doing something completely new and playing with a technique which had never been done before! Take a look at a few of these early film examples and be inspired to produce your own LomoKino movies in the same style!
El hotel electrico (1905)
Elements of stop motion are used throughout this movie from the Spanish Director Segundo de Chomon:
La maison ensorcelée (1907-8)
Another movie by Segundo de Chomon, skip in to 2:24 if you want to see an amazing stop motion scene!
The Automatic Moving Company (1909-10)
No people appear in this movie by Émile Cohl – It’s basically entirely dedicated to the world of stop motion – Ingenious stuff!
Bringing analogue back to the movies with a bang in the 21st century, the LomoKino is a Lomography movie camera that shoots spectacular, creative movies on all kinds of 35mm film. Head to the Microsite, watch some Movies and begin your analogue movie-making journey today!
In this article I’m going to review the LomoKino's key features, show you how to load the film, and share some tips on shooting and editing a movie. I will also show you a short stop motion movie that I made with this camera.
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
Cap off the year with a movie marathon! We have the perfect selection of short flicks shot using the LomoKino for your amusement. So grab your buttered popcorn and prepare for a nostalgic trip through different places and different seasons with our most popular LomoKino movies of 2014.

My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
How We Used to Live is a beautiful film by Paul Kelly using archive footage of London from the 1950's right up to the 1980's. It's a fascinating analogue film with a great soundtrack from St Etienne. Read on for more information.

Well, we’re thrilled to say we have an exciting follow-up to Cine200 which will launch in just a few days!

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
We were recently invited along to the award ceremony of the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. We decided to take two Petzval lenses along to document the evening. One with film and one with digital. Have a look at the results here.
