The LomoKino - My Dream Camera


As a former film student and movie buff, I’ve always liked to incorporate photography into movies. The LomoKino is the camera I’ve always dreamt of - Lomography is now taking us into a new world of analogue photography.

I’ve made a short film using my photographs before. But it was so much work, and with my busy schedule, the series didn’t last very long.

When I first heard about LomoKino, I thought, this was my dream come true. I remember when I was creating an ad for an imaginary product for school project; I came up with a disposable 16mm camera, and though LomoKino is not a disposable camera (which makes it even better) I thought Lomography has created the camera I dreamt of and that I thought no one was ever going be able to create.

But what makes the LomoKino better than Super 8 or a 16mm movie camera? The LomoKino uses regular 35mm films which we are all familiar with. It’s the easiest film to find and cheapest film to buy. When I was taking film classes back in school, I got into shooting with 16mm movie camera, but as much as I love 16mm, it was not something I could keep doing because the film was really expensive. It was hard to find a place to process, and it was also expensive to get it processed.

The movies I’ve shot with the LomoKino remind me of some of the 16mm films I've done because when I was using 16mm, I would use the 16 fps (frames per second) setting instead of the standard 24 fps so I can shoot more footage on one roll of film. The result is like old silent moves and a little bit choppy, which I really like.

The LomoKino is a great camera to take to your trip or to your daily outings to document the precious moments in your life or to make creative pieces of art films I know that many Lomographers have always dreamt of it.

Now it’s your turn to be the next Lomography style filmmaker! Have fun shooting!!!

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!
