As I evolved to Lomography from dig*censored* photography as a Nikonian, I had to obtain a Nikon film SLR to indulge in my addiction to lenses.
The Nikon F80 is not the top Nikon film SLR. However it comes pretty friggin’ close! With the dig*censored* craze these babies are going for as low as 50 Euros, like I bought mine ( and I paid another 100 Euros for two used Nikkor lenses for it, both in good condition!). You have to liberate these cameras and give them the love they deserve!
The Nikon F80 is supposed to be a serious amateur SLR. Sporting the Nikon F mount it is compatible with the vast majority of the about 300 Nikkor lenses and all those third-party lenses for the Nikon F mount PLUS, now, the awesome Diana F+ Lens Adaptor :D :D :D
The F80 has matrix metering, a pop-up flash and hotshoe (I bought a SB-23 external flash for mine for 5 Euros (!!!)) and all the modes you want. Aperture-priority/Shutter-priority/Manual mode/Program mode, it’s all there. Automatic film feeding and respooling goes easy on your fingers. DX (overridable) scanning sets ISO automatically. It operates with batteries and they last for quite some rolls. I can’t say I miss any feature. This camera has all you could possibly want AND taking good pictures with it is like cheating. Autoexposure, autofocus, no parallax when composing, the freedom of zoom lenses… A world of creativity is unlocked.
If you can find one, grab it now or you’ll be sorry later (especially when everyone starts posting their great pics with the Diana F+ Fisheye etc. ;P) !!!! Oh, and you just saved yourself 700 Euros on the fisheye alone !!!!!!!!
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.
The idea behind this project was to shoot 24 moments in one week's time using a disposable camera. Incidentally, a friend from Seattle sent me two disposable cameras so I was finally able to participate. Disposable cameras aren't sold in Manila anymore. I timed my shoot during the week wherein I had to go out several times, also hoping for good weather.
The original Diana F is a plastic beauty from 1960s Hong Kong. The Diana F+ is a reinterpretation, which is in no way inferior to the old Diana. It´s so versatile with all the optional accessories and lenses like no other lomography camera. And because of this, I will show you what makes this camera so special.

When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.
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.
This is tribute to the Farm Security Administration photographer, Jack Delano, and his photographic series dedicated to barkers. For this article, I chose a series of photos I took this year at the traditional Easter Fair in my city, Como, using a classic rangefinder camera loaded with a roll of black and white film.
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
