We know you've heard of this before or maybe was even a part of it! Well hold your horses for the biggest race in the Lomographic Society is back and it sure is more thrilling than ever!
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!

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.
