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

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    Object of my Affection: Deer of Every Kind!

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
