Ever wondered if you can shoot long exposure movies with the LomoKino? Well, you can, and with this modification from Mandi at Lomography HQ, you can find out how!
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 them. Unscrew the aperture lever/disc and carefully remove it by pulling it out from the lens/shutter part.
Have a close look at the shutter construction. When you move the lever (the one with the spring attached) and release it again, you can see that the lever is touching the smaller of 2 dents on the shutter disc, causing the exposure. The bigger dent is releasing the flash by making the 2 metal contacts touch.
Remove the 4 screws that hold this part. Carefully lift it and turn it counterclockwise. The 2 metal contacts seem to be in the way. Try not to bend them too much or the flash won’t fire anymore on the LomoKino.
Now all you have to do is move the whole thing back to its original position, with the shutter disc being caught between the contacts. Please see image. It takes a little bit of fiddling.
If you move the lever again, it should not touch the shutter disc anymore but the shutter will stay open (you can look through it and check). Then screw the shutter part back on.
Finally, you can build your own kind of shutter by just making a copy of the aperture lever/disc out of an appropriate material. I took a photo print and it worked fine for me! It should be absolutely non-translucent and as black as possible. It should cover enough space to keep all light away on one setting; on the other setting, it should reveal enough space to not interfere with the image.
Put this self-built shutter where it belongs, screw, screw, screw,… and action! Oh and don’t forget to open and close the shutter for each exposure!

Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
