I have been eyeing the La Sardina camera a couple of times but nothing caught my eyes until the La Sardina "The Guvnor" Edition came along.
When I spotted the La Sardina Guvnor on Lomography, I knew instantly that I have to get it. It is made for London Love to celebrate the exciting city of London. We all know that there are a lot to celebrate in London this year what with the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics. It is tinted in Union Jack colours (my favourite!) and check out the details on the lens cap. It was the final factor that got me clicking “Add To Cart.”
When the camera arrived, it got me really excited and I just want to take it out right away and to be seen on the street. Unlike my previous camera, the Diana Mini, I found the La Sardina less complicated to handle.
Here are a little description on the camera:
Film: It ‘consumes’ 35mm film which is readily available in any photo lab out there.
Setting: N for the Normal (broad daylight) mode and B for the Bulb setting.
Rewind Dial and MX: Just snap your first picture, DO NOT advance the film, push the knob towards to MX mode and take your second picture. Ta-da! Easiest MX ever.
Focusing Lens: Focusing can never get any easier with La Sardina. It comes in 0.6m-1m and 1m-Infinity.
Film Cartridge Window: This will show you what film are you using in case you forgot
I took it out on a lomo walk I organized with a couple of friends and load The Guvnor with Lomography CN ISO 100.
These are some of the pictures taken using the camera:
No doubt this camera is one of the best in my collection. It captures and focuses easily with no hassle and I will definitely recommend this camera to every Lomography first-timer. This camera is a perfect companion for road trips and parties.

My dad and I have been riding our bicycles for as long as I can remember. We had no camera back then, so I only have the pictures from our recent rides. Each ride to the island of Khortitsa today is like a reunion with my childhood and my father's care.
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
