    No LC-A? No LC-W? No Horizon? No world peace? Strange wishlist choices this time.

    i thought everyone would choose the LC-W ultimate package for sure! >______<

    LSI, you've done it manually?) or with data base making? with choosing from number of comments names of comment's author, making from this massive of names new massive without repeating names. And then just choosing from their wishlists most repeatable slots. And finally randomize.
    Sure, that your programmers could easily done it, that's not a big problem ;}

    I agree with @duckduckninja ... :D

    Yep, strange list! Last time Horizon and LC-A+ were there...
    Come on, no one wanted the LC-Wide?????

    I thought for sure there would be an LC-A in there.

    oh Lubitel... make my wish come true! ^__^

  12. kneehigh85
    kneehigh85 ·

    In a competition based on how many people wish for something, it seems a bit dubious that there were thousands of entries seemingly from individual lomohomes who had no recent activity (so could all belong to a handful of people) which will seriously affect the results. I refuse to believe that the majority of genuine entrants would want a yellow sprocket rocket over an LC-Wide. I think this is going to be another fixed competition where LSI let themselves down badly.

  13. veato
    veato ·

    Lubitel and Diana Deluxe kit is on my wishlist. I've got the blue Sprocket Rocket not the yellow one though. Oh well, I've got a chance of winning two out of the five I guess. I'm gobsmacked the LC-A/LC-W isn't on there though.

  14. veato
    veato ·

    @kneehigh85 I know what you mean. Was the Diana instant back really wished for more times than an LC-A??

  15. kneehigh85
    kneehigh85 ·

    Also, I don't understand - is this the most wished for out of the 3369 who entered the competition or people in the world?

  16. kneehigh85
    kneehigh85 ·

    @veato - I highly doubt it. I think the problem is, what have they counted? There were 3369 comments on that comp. Lots of them were repeats so I would estimate that only 2900 were unique entries. So if they are counting people outside the comp as well, maybe they had 29 items on their wishlist. All these things will hugely affect the totals. I know at least ten people who genuinely entered the competition, only one had a Lubi, and none of the others had any of the other items which seems rather suspect.

  17. jourdanlynch
    jourdanlynch ·

    Haha the Lubitel and the Sprocket rocket is on my wish list... not yellow though :P
    The LC-W is on my wishlist too I was sure that would get chosen for this...

  18. gborin
    gborin ·

    well, i had the Lubi, the Spinner and the Deluxe Kit in my list, but i was hoping there would be an LC-A or LC-W in there.

  19. adi_totp

    yeah! the lubitel :D

  22. pan_dre

    @Kneehigh: Honestly I was a bit surprised by some of the results, the yellow Sprocket foremost, when I checked this today, but then looking back at our last Win Your Wishlist, I found it to have some similarities. Lubitel 166+, Diana Deluxe Kit and Spinner just always seem to be amoung the most wished items. Of course LC-A, LC-Wide and Horizon are in the top ten as well, but just didn't make it into the top five.

  23. kingdjin
    kingdjin ·

    Wow i've choose the istant back!!

  24. emilios
    emilios ·

    Not that i have anything against the sprocket rocket or the spinner. I hve both and i enjoy shooting with them all the time. But i was very surprised not see the LC-Wide or the Perfect..............and yellow???

  25. cfib

    I could use a good lubi :D

    I hate the anticipation! I have the spinner and the sprocket rocket in blue not yellow, and the Diana Instant Back. I really wish to get the Diana Instant Back so profoundly bad!!!!

  28. iampjingxp

    Lubitel for me pleaseeeee :))))) so expensive after converting into malaysian currency :(

    just come closer my lubiyyy ;DDD

  30. vicuna
    vicuna ·

    well, all these items are not on my wishlist as I already have them (even if not a yellow SpRocket, but black)... and I'm surprised that the LC-A/LC-W or Horizon didn't made it in the top 5...

  31. stratski
    stratski ·

    Haha, I'd be kind of bummed if I won the Diana istant back (the only thing here on my list). I don't have a Diana (was on my list, too, didn't want to seem greedy and wish for the delux kit - stupid, I know), so this would force me to buy one. Hey, LSI! If you let me win, you'll still make some money. Just sayin' ;-)

  32. andrus_n
    andrus_n ·

    Maybe me is weird but me is one of those 200 who don't wish for lubitel. Also one of that 1000 who did not wish for the last 3 items as well. So leaves my bet only on spinner. wished also for lca or borizont.
    So if I do not get the luck is not generous this there anyone wanting to get of rid it's used one for a deal.

  33. atria007
    atria007 ·

    really!!!! no lc wide!!! wowww increible!!! hahahahha i want lc wide ehhh hahahahah ^_^

  34. kernow_and_cambria
    kernow_and_cambria ·

    I made the mistake of only putting the LCA-W on my list. Didn't realise we could have filled those suckers up! Very odd the LCA-W isn't on there as this seems to be the most popular popping up on here...

  35. mariaratfingers
    mariaratfingers ·

    this top 5 is too strange to be real.. i bet almost every single person who entered the competition wished for an lc-wide... and yellow... no, this isn't right.

  36. nadinadu
    nadinadu ·

    yay :) spinner was on my list!! the list is strange though...especially the yellow sprocket rocket! But about the LC-A and LC-W, im sure a lot of people already have one of the two seeing as they are so popular, and that could be why there werent as many votes for them, no?

  37. kneehigh85
    kneehigh85 ·

    @pan_dre - I understand the list could be surprising, but I don't understand exactly what you have counted here. If there were only 3369 comments and most were not unique (i.e. the same person has commented about 10 times in a lot of cases) then there can only have been around 2900 (for example) entries to the competition. If you have only counted those entries, nothing can have been wished for more than 2900 times. If you have counted everyone's wishlist (as in, people who did not enter the competition as well as those who did, then it kind of invalidates the competition because those people may have had more than 5 items in their wishlist. Either way, it doesn't add up.

    LSI, I don't believe this is the real choices. LC-A+ nor LC-Wide not on the list......

  45. tahe87
    tahe87 ·

    Let tha spinner come my way... :D Still cant believe LC-A+ didnt make it... BTW: Lubi is awesome, but i bought a original lubitel 2 for 20 euro's on a flee market, so i m not sure what the fuss is about :D

    You'd say people would vote for the products that they think everybody votes for, for a bigger chance of winning.

    @jonalon not the entire list, though, but you'll have the chance to grab both of the item you wished for!

  61. -dakota-
    -dakota- ·

    Really? No lc-a? no lc-wide? No horizon?? Everyone can buy a sprocket rocket or instant back, and spinner isn't very expensive... but in my opinion... a wishlist is a list of something that you wish but you can't buy. Like lubitel or lc-wide (350 €) or horizon perket (400 €)!! I'm very surprised! :O

  65. kneehigh85
    kneehigh85 ·

    @mulct - I personally don't intend it to be cynicism but this is not the first competition where the results have been totally out of whack. There isn't a great deal of point having a comp in the first place if no-one understands the rules and it isn't explained correctly how they have worked out the results.

  66. ibkc
    ibkc ·

    Well, I completely misunderstood the rules of this one -- I thought it was "list your top five most wanted products" and then they'd pick a lucky winner, but it seems the rules are a lot more complex than that. I'm not complaining, just saying I'm confused!

  67. jonalon
    jonalon ·

    @fookshit ah cool! thanks!

    Well, I only wished for the diana kit (I REALLY want that one).. i really wanted a horizon or de LC-W. I love TLR's but I have my recesky for now, and 120 film is sort of expensive with it's only max 16 shots.. Well, crosses fingers for beautiful Diana... but, YELLOW???? I even wished for the new beluga, cause it's so pretty. I thought it would be a hit with the release and all.... oh well, it won't be me, so ...

  73. tonantzin

    nothing from my wishlist is there! o_O

  74. 86john

    i only have spinner. dame. why would anyone want to get a diana instant back in stead of lc-a instant back? sad... and seriously, lca is not in top 5? unbelievable. looks like everybody here already have a lca and lca instant back so no body chooses them. who on earth choose yellow btw? i think we can list out our wishlist here and count it ourselves.

    @86john, seriously. We should make our own list here. I just couldn't accept the fact that Horizon, LC-A, LC-W are not in the list. It's impossible.

  82. isammi
    isammi ·

    Top 5 most wished? Really? Curious....
    And funny... lot of people here wondering why is not in that list a LC-A or LC-W (including me), that makes me feel that they should have been in the top list....

    Anyway, good luck to everybody that continues in!!

  83. panchoballard
    panchoballard ·

    There aren't many companies that give so much away for so little. Every month I write an article or review and get piggies in return, which I can spend online. That's free money! If you're lucky enough to attend a Lomo event there's usually free beer! Free stuff on Facebook too.

    I think we need to remember that.

  84. imushie

    A Salute to the Masters: D-Day in Como? (A Tribute to Robert Capa)

    This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
