We had the Lomo LC-A Race some three years ago and it made Lomographers giddy and anxious of the huge results! And now we’re bringing back the intense feeling with The LC-Wide Race! Yup, our photos are wider now!

The LC-Wide Race will compose of 5 teams from 5 continents and will be held over 5 stages (a stage being one stop with a Lomographer in the team.) Each team will receive their corresponding guidelines, an LC-Wide camera, films, a notebook, and certain cool stuff for every task/mission. These are each team’s essentials as they shoot and pass the camera around for 10 weeks or even more. With these, challenges and big prizes await every Lomographer!

So you think you can be part of this world wide event? Then let us know by dropping us an e-mail at lcwiderace2012@lomography.com with the following details:

    Flying the Canon Flag with the Canon EOS-1N

    Who do you think deserves the crown for the best 35mm SLR camera? Canon and Nikon will always be in a two-horse race to the top spot in the consumer to prosumer SLR/DSLR market, having developed reputations as two of the biggest go-to brands. Representing the Canon corner, I can safely say the Canon EOS-1N is by far the best SLR I have ever used.

    Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra Wide Lenses

    Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.
