I just spotted one of the recent Lomography sensations: the La Sardina El Capitan on the cover of the online Technology News magazine the Telegraph. Read more...
In the article, Shane Richmond gives a brief history and the philosophy of the beginning of Lomography. What he also said about Lomography: “The company began producing other cameras, including another reproduction, this time of the 1960s Diana camera. Other models allowed multiple exposures or offered fish-eye lenses. Lomography makes pinhole cameras, cameras that spin around to produce a panorama and others that take photos exposing the ‘sprockets’ of the film.” And are we (lomographers) are glad Lomography has done so much in so little time. Mr. Richmond goes on to say: “The latest camera, La Sardina, is a quirky model with a wide-angle lens and a design based on a sardine tin. There are four brightly-coloured models.”
It’s a plastic camera, and that, combined with its looks, give the feel of a child’s toy. It’s not suitable for children, of course, not least because they won’t understand why it doesn’t have an LCD screen on the back. It does a great job of conveying the sense of fun that Lomography represents. Lomography is still growing, even while digital photography booms, and the company is opening more shops and has now opened labs to develop its own photos.

When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.

Probably each one of you has been annoyed with failed film. This is particularly annoying when you get the developed film back from the lab, but you get blanks because the film was not exposed. It's either the film transport didn't work, or you have not taken the lens cap off, etc. Read on and I'll show you an alternative to just throwing away the film: Simply use it as a color filter for your camera, with the La Sardina for example.
Granted, the two DIY editions of La Sardina are easy to customize: they simply get painted on or you decorated them with one of the dresses. With a little skill, this also works with the non-DIY-La Sardinas. Read on and I'll show you how to do it.
