Multiply & Conquer!
Our multi-lens cameras can really multiply your fun. Capture motion on four frames, or add some pop-effects to world around you. We’ll introduce you to the ActionSampler, Super Sampler, Okotomat and Pop9 cameras, then teach you some basics for shooting from the hip!

Summer Fun Light Leaks Workshop
A little bit of extra light never hurt anybody; In fact, it usually adds interest and unpredictability to your photos! Join Lomo celebrity Elena Kulikova, whose images have been featured on product packages as well as the Diana F+ book, as she teaches you about light leaks and how to make the most out of the sunshine.

The Little Big Party
Sometimes, great things come in small packages! We’ve got some huge surprises for you, but what could they be? Join us and we’ll show you what the big fuss is all about. Food, drinks and jams are complimentary at this Blue Hour Party!
We will also be celebrating the opening of our newest gallery exhibition: Transmography: Thirteen Fairytale Portraits of Queers Beyond the Gender Binary. We proudly present to you a gallery of artwork by Lomo Amigos Najva Sol and Molly Crabapple. Their illustrated photographs will be showing simultaneously in both our San Francisco and New York gallery stores… Don’t miss out on this bicoastal exhibition upstairs!

Wild and Wide!
We’ve just launched fresh new collections of all our cameras, and the new colors pack quite a punch. It’s a perfect time to get you reacquainted with one of our old favorites, the Lomography Fisheye camera series! We’re shooting the wide world with 170-degree vision; Join us as we take a trip around town with our fishy pals.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LC-A
Happy birthday to the Lomo LC-A! The LC-A has a long history of making beautiful and unique images, and it’s easily one of our favorite photographic tools. Let’s take it out and show our love for this Russian beauty on a street photography walk! Bring your LC-A, LC-A+ or LC-Wide and we’ll give your LC-A a birthday roll of 35mm film to shoot with.
