Keep Your Lovely Lomo Cameras Safely

19

Here's a simple tip on how you can keep your Lomo cameras safely at home.

Hi Lomographers! I always wanted to store my Lomo cameras in a safe place and I always wanted to display them to add to the beauty of my room. Finally I did it!

Today I will teach you guys why and how you should do it. Why you should keep your Lomo cameras displayed properly and safely?

  • Because YOU LOVE THEM!
  • To keep them away from children’s reach (that is the reason why I have a door to my Show Case)
  • To keep it away from dust
  • It looks nicer!

For those who want to store their Lomo camers safely at home. Here are a few tips:

  • Get a Show Case/Rack
  • Decorate it with all your Lomo pictures
  • Place your Fflms, Lomo Books & accessories inside
  • Finally, place your cameras safely in it

Here’s how I arranged them:

Panoramic Cameras, Medium Format Cameras

I hope this Tipster helps all the Lomographers worldwide. Have fun designing your camera storage!

    You'd be better off keeping your film in a fridge

    So organized! This is definitely a neat idea on how you store your cameras. :)

    But I don't think this will fit my lifestyle as a lomographer. Rock and roll! :D

    Looks like a shop display, very well done. I think I'd be worried about the cabinet breaking or being knocked over, especially if you had children running around lol. An all your eggs in one basket situation. Looks great either way!

    like it! Though keeping your film in the fridge will help it last longer.

    Hmmm, you might clean your camera. not everyday but just once it a while so that fungus do not accumulate. :)

    It is really nice, and it's obvious you really love your Lomographic stuff! The fact is that I just have a La Sardina and a SMENA 8M, so I for me it's enough to have them inside on a shelf, but always at sight! Good tip! =)

    you always can get a mini bar fridge with a glass door just for displaying the film .lol
