Top 5 Cameras on My 2012 Bucket List


Having three analogue cameras of my own already, is that enough? No of course it isn't! The journey doesn't end at just 5 cameras! Check out my analogue bucket list for 2012.

The three cameras I have are the Yashica Minitec (which has awesome vignettes effects though it is super heavy!), the Diana Mini White (I love the snow-white colour and its convenient size) and my silver Fuji Instax Cheki x Yone 50 (Instant gratification trumps almost everything else!)

Now, I will move on to talk about my top 5 most-coveted cameras of the year, starting from No. 5!

  1. The LomoKino

Of course, the new revolutionary gimmick that Lomography recently produced. It is a breakthrough in the Lomography analogue world. Now, everyone can produce movies of their own!

  1. The La Sardina (Domino)

Who can resist the sleek black and white design of the Domino, coupled with its wide-angle lens? NOT ME! Go on a sea voyage with the sardine can camera!

  1. The Fuji Instax Wide 210

Instant gratification yet again! But in a much larger form, as compared to my Instax mini 50! This super-sized camera provides super-sized gratification!

  1. Diana F+ Edelweiss

Is my Diana Mini White enough? Of course not! With the also snow-white big sister, I will be able to attach lens and even a 35mm back to adapt the camera to 35mm film! Though bigger, this big baby provides more shooting options!

  1. LC-Wide

Any camera collection is not complete, without the LC-Wide. This deluxe camera is the ultimate addition to any collection, and will triumph as king of your cameras. Now, I am just waiting for a white version to match my Diana Mini White and my (potential Diana Edelweiss)!

After 5 cameras, you may ask, is that all?

Of course not, there are so many cameras out there that are worthy additions to any collection, but it is a painful choice to just choose 5. Also, with so many cameras, you need many films as well! Why not head down to the Lomography Online Shop and grab yourself some films to feed both your cameras’ hunger and yours?

Let’s make 2012 a year full of creativity and analogue love! If you liked this article, go ahead and check the rest of analogue bucket lists for 2012 submitted by the community! Of course, you can also submit your own inspiring analogue bucket list for 2012 and get more piggies!

    Isn't a bucket list things to do before you die?

    @kneehigh85 I picked a Trip up from a car boot for a fiver. They all tend to have stuck aperture blades even though they are sold as working. I fixed and cleaned and reskinned mine to look like this:…

    If you do get one let me know if you need any help.

    @veato oh that would be good. There were some refurbed ones on ebay for about £30 but I would really have been buying them because I liked the pretty skin colours!

    The covers are cheap from here: It's where I got my green lizard one from. Dead easy to fit.

    Im lucky and have just finished my collection of cameras and all it cost me was £5

    LC-wide for sure. I dont think you can find a better half frame camera with a meter.

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
