The LomoKino makes all the wonderful possibilities of 35mm film photography available to the world of movie making. Cross-processed comedy? Redscale romance? Black & White drama? Sure you can! Whether you choose to create experimental stop motion or fantastic montage movies, it's possible with a LomoKino. We have prepared a step-by-step guide to get you started.
Loading the Film
Got a 35mm film roll ready? Good. You’re ready to load your LomoKino so that you can begin creating your blockbuster movies!
Open the LomoKino cover by pressing both of the door lock buttons (on either side of the camera) at the same time.
Pull out the film tongue a little and slide it around the upper roller, then pull it back over towards the taking spool.
Pull up the rewinding lever a bit and place the film roll into the film chamber.
Drop the rewinding lever back into place.
Insert the film tongue into the taking spool slit and turn the advancing crank forward to ensure that the film spool is firmly on the taking spool.
When you are sure that the film is firmly attached to the taking spool, reattach the camera’s cover.
Focusing the LomoKino
Setting the focus on the LomoKino is a breeze because if you are over 1m away from your movie subject you don’t have to do a thing!
If you are between 1m and 0.6m, then you can focus by holding the close-up button on the front of the LomoKino as you shoot.
Setting the Aperture
The LomoKino has continuous aperture settings between f/5.6 and f/11 – This means that you can smoothly adjust the aperture at any time as you shoot.
A larger aperture (f/5.6) means that more light will enter the camera, and a smaller aperture (f/11) means less light will enter the camera – So use a larger aperture if you want your movie brighter, and vice versa.
Shooting with the LomoKino
To shoot with your LomoKino, just lock the advancing crank in position and turn it forward at your desired speed – Your LomoKino will shoot at approximately 1/100 shutter speed.
If you turn the advancing crank at full speed, you can reach 3-5 frames per second when filming. When you are shooting, you should be able to see the rewinding wheel turning.
