Take off the front part of the LomoKino. Remove the 6 small screws on the back of the front part. Take a look at the inside parts and remember where and how you remove certain parts. Unscrew the aperture lever/disc and carefully remove it by pulling it out from the lens/shutter part. Remove the 4 screws that hold this part.
Build a little pinhole disc, e.g. out of a piece of thin foil, in this case I used aluminium foil and double sided adhesive tape. Use a needle to make a very small hole (note: I painted the front part of the pinhole and the back of it black to avoid light-leaks and reflections). Stick it on the part where the shutter/lens was before.
Put the front part back together with the 6 screws and don’t lose any of the other parts if you want to go back to the normal LomoKino later.
That’s it, your LomoKino is now constantly exposing through a pinhole. Use your hand to cover the pinhole before advancing the film after each exposure (especially if you want to move the camera in between).
A tripod is a good idea. Depending on your pinhole, exposure times start from 1-3 seconds on a bright sunny day . Dark conditions can become quite exhausting; remember you want to shoot 144 frames, and each one takes a minute or 10…
Extra tip: you can build your own kind of shutter on the front of the LomoKino. Just make sure the “shutter“ opens fully, revealing all of the front hole or closes completely, not letting any light in that could influence the image.

Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

Not knowing exactly how to do deal with its odd appearance, Nadica first regarded the Lubitel 166B as a complete monstrosity. She left it untouched on her shelf for months after receiving it as a gift. After using other Lomo cameras and getting familiar with the rules on exposure, she finally had the courage to test it. Find out what made stacy_mcpommes fall in love with the Lubitel 166B in this installment of Weapon of Choice!
