We want to say a big thank you to anyone who has recently helped support our Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner project over at Kickstarter - we've been blown away. With such huge demand we've added some more pledge rewards for those who still haven't grabbed their own - but hurry! To celebrate we've put together off some never-before-seen photos scanned with the Lomography Film Scanner!
Here you can see how those once-lost memories are brought back to life, ready to be shared with your friends and the rest of the world with just a click of a button!
For more information, or if you want to help support the project and get your hands on your own Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner, head over to our Kickstarter page.
Thank you to everyone so far that has extended their support to our Lomo'Instant Camera x Kickstarter project. To those who haven't pledged, we would like to remind you that you have a few days left to take advantage of great savings and exclusive rewards. The Lomo'Instant x Kickstarter Project ends on Friday (27th June) so act fast!

Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
