UFO Nemo! My Small Underwater Friend!

18

It is s pity that summer is so short , and I have to wait next summer, for the next underwater adventures!

This summer I manage to purchase this small babe: Ufo Nemo. It is a plastic film camera with a wide 28mm lens, which can also shoot under the water. It’s shutter is fixed at 1\125 and aperture at f/ 8, and works with 1 AA battery, which is needed to work the flash!

A flash turns on and off manually but not automatically, that makes me happy. Due to the plastic lens it gives a strong distortion and vignettes the edges of the shot. It also gives bright and contrasting colours.

For shooting under the water this small camera is inserted in the plastic housing. Here you have to be very attentive, and close the box densely, otherwise the water can leak in it. Generally speaking when I’ve got it, we run at the seaside to test it. In fact underwater pictures make an amazing impression – you can do everything what you want! From the first shot it was clear, that a view-finder is useless under water!

And the film you should choose should be with more high ISO. I like this baby very much, it took the worthy place in my collection of Lomo cams.It is s pity that summer is so short , and I have to wait next summer, for the next underwater adventures!
One Love

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Pushing Boundaries: Multiple Exposing Film Soup

    As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    LomoLocations: Beijing, China

    Beijing is a ready-made template for panoramic shots. Tourist baits like The Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace stretch for miles. Those who walk from end to end will have more to say. For instance, that the ground goes on to infinity. Or that they have never been so tired and amazed all at once.
