A picnic, some food, some fun and some Lomo LC-A action in commemoration of everyone's favourite Minitar-lensed wonder - at the Museum gardens of York, UK.
Come and join us in Museum Gardens in York, UK on June 20, 2009 for a big ol’ picnic. We are asking people to spend the afternoon with us taking pictures and making friends. Then we want people to get the pictures they have taken developed and join us later in the evening in the Slug and Lettuce bar where we will be making a Lomowall of the shots we have taken, giving away prizes, have a drink and celebrate the LC-A+ compact camera in a big way!
LET’S PARTY, JUSTCOMEFORTHEFUN.
We will be photographing the Events on our own LC-A’s, and don’t forget to bring your lomo cameras along too!!!

Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
