Stunning Smena 8M Gallery

9

A Russian beauty that's a blast from the past, the Smena 8M is afully manual lady that yields eye-popping color saturation and contrast.

Here’s some shots from our Photos page of the Smena in action. Crisp, sharp shots are yours for the taking with this old relic from the 80’s!

With full control over your aperture and shutter speeds, unlimited creativity is in your hands with the Smena 8M! Made by the LOMO factory, the Smena was and remains an icon in the analog world. If that wasn’t enough, this little wonder from Russia also features an uncoupled shutter so you have access to easy double exposures – even more if you want! Using it at first might be a wee bit confusing but once you get used to its quirks and controls, prepare yourself to get some golden shots!

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
