The LomoMatrix Toronto is here!

Toronto made its mark in Lomography history - The LomoMatrix Toronto is here and we're itching to share the fun with the entire community. Read on to see what went down and to view all the 360 stop motion greatness!

The LomoMatrix is one of Lomography’s most unique and world-renowned events, bringing analogue photos to stop motion life in 360. It’s been done in Paris, Berlin, Manila, Hong Kong and now, Toronto! It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon when our Lomography Canada team met up with a bunch of loyal Lomographers in Toronto’s vast Trinity Bellwoods Park to shoot the LomoMatrix. The sun was shining, the shutters were snapping and the balls were flying – literally!

Our theme was ‘circus/fantasy’ so we brought out all the colourful props we could find including a unicorn, some huge circus balls and even some performing animals – William and Koko! Our group of 24 people and 2 dogs brought out our LOMO LC-A+'s and La Sardina cameras to capture all the acrobatic jumps on film.

Fun with the Spinner Motorizer

One of the best parts of the day was experimenting with the Spinner Motorizer. We loaded this amazing little device with a roll of Lomography 400 Colour Negative film, placed it in the center of the LomoMatrix circle and let it run for the entire roll. This resulted in a breathtaking 360 photograph that seemed to go on forever!

The superb Toronto LomoMatrix participants

And finally, after all the fun that we had, we sent the film out for development and had our very own kevinchaves put the final video together. So, at last, here is Toronto’s LomoMatrix! :

Get ready to sail the high seas with our new La Sardina collection! These 35mm cameras are equipped with spectacular wide-angle lens, multiple exposure capabilities, and a rewind dial—everything you need for fun-filled and thrill-soaked escapades. Get your own La Sardina camera now!

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
