    The first one that came to mind was mattcharnock's Fed3 "Nuclear Survivor" review. Posted several months ago, yet still remembered. If this guy writes it, I'm gonna read it.

    Again, a difficult task to chose only one... as others already pointed it out, stouf's review of the Stereo Holga is a masterpiece....! But I'm also a BIG fan of all camera reviews made by mattcharnock: an inventive, funny and precise description with great shots: the balda Baldessa, the fed3, the Olympus Trip 35 are fantastic. But my fav will be the one about the Coronet Twelve 20!

    It has to be this review.
    www.lomography.cn/magazine/cameras/2009/04/11/agfa-clack-a-…

    This sums up to me what Lomography is all about. Like minded people rescuing cameras that would not have a home otherwise, because it seems to me if it was,nt for the people of lomography Film photography would be alot more poorer for it.

    I have to agree that the Stereo camera is a killer...

    Stouf's 3D review is really good, but I have to go with Lomodirk's review of the Widepan Pro II: www.lomography.cn/magazine/cameras/2008/11/12/widepan-pro-i…

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Creativity means Connecting Things - A Splitzer for the LC-A 120

    I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.

    LomoKino: Life in Moving Pictures!

    I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!
