Lomography in Singapore was given a boost recently, with the feature of a local store called “Peek!”. The store houses an array of Lomography cameras as well as film and accessories within its four walls. Hosts Aunty Lucy and Kim Bong Cha (played by Singaporean radio DJ Dennis Chew and actress Judee Tan respectively) try out different cameras during their visit and were definitely impressed by what others may brush off as a “toy camera”. They proceed to snap some photos around the vicinity to have a feel of the cameras.
In the video, one of the staff talks about different types of films and the resulting effects along with the different types of cameras that are available in the store. Some of the Lomography cameras featured in the pilot episode of this series include the Fisheye No.2, Colorsplash Camera, Sprocket Rocket, and Diana F+.
