LomoKino: The SUPER 35mm Movie Camera


When I was young, I remember digging out a roll of an 8mm film from my grandpa's drawer. Back then, I knew it was a movie film, because I went through every single frame of the film and I noticed changes of movement in the pictures. But I do not know what made it happen.

To be honest to everyone, I was always wondering and wanted to own an analogue video camera which has a winder at the side of camera.

I often watched discovery channel and magazines about how people used to make a movie using film back in time when digital camera was invented. And I wondered, what would I do with it if I would ever have one in my hand?

So, now I am glad I am involved in Lomography, which finally launched such an amazing product, the LomoKino. It was hard to explain my feeling when I saw it launched the first day. I ordered it as soon as the the nearest lomo-shop here said they want to make a pre-order.

Eventually, I got it in my hand—it was as cute as I thought, and firm as I wondered. The first thing I did, as with every Lomography product I bought, I smelled the camera. I like how the LomoKino was designed: the overall of the camera is small and easy to bring around, the view finder is really impressive as it pops up, the winder is retractable, and the analogue classical “CLICKING” sound, which is my favorite.

There are many nice things about the LomoKino camera, such as being allowed to focus! What’s more attractive to me is the film meter! That’s really nice! One more awesome thing: it’s 35mm film compatible!!!

Okay, now let’s talk about the results that this analogue movie camera can do. I didn’t expect much about how it would look like, I just enjoy bringing it out and showing to my friends. When I started winding my video camera, people somehow stare at me in a different way. Anyway, who cares, this is 2 of my LomoKino results, I love both of them a lot. Before I finished the video editing, I thought 1 roll of film wouldn’t be enough, but after seeing the results, I think short movies have interesting stories inside out.

Hope you enjoy these!

    Godo question @antoniodezner... but i really have no idea. I guess the main thing is that to have a good rollerblading skill? I just keep winding the LOMOKINO while rollerblading backwards, until my film went empty.. :)

Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!

    'Aniki-Bòbò': A Tribute to Manoel De Oliveira

    This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!
