For more than 20 years, I had been looking for a mechanical camera (WITHOUT batteries!). Having heard about the Fed 5 from “The Photographers’ Gallery”, in London, I went to England to buy it. I like the FED 5 so much because it’s a very strong camera: you can take photos on the beach, the mountain, in very cold places or in very hot ones. You just have to make sure there’s film in it. I like to listen to “her” mechanical song when she’s shooting. And, of course, there’s the 80´s design – no plastic, just metal with metal. So what are the Fed 5’s best features? The range of speeds; you can do everything with all the speeds, but I like the “B”. The metering system is great. Whether the aperture is small or large, the Fed 5 achieves amazing depth of focus. You can even approximate the distance by looking at its scale (don’t think, just shoot!!)
Selenium light meter.
Remarkable contrast, resolution and sharpness due to multi-elemented ‘Industrar 61’ lens
The Lomography Hong Kong Team spent a cozy evening at the opening party for an antique shop and captured moments from the event with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens. The Minitar-1 Lens brought life to every image, from quick behind-the-scenes snaps and portraits, to artsy and creative shots of the antiques.
Join us on Thursday, February 4 for the opening night of the Jupiter Landing Exhibition where we will showcase some of the finest photographers from around the world who tested The New Jupiter 3+ Lens.
With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
The all new LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens captures people caught in the glories of daily life. From staged portraits or quick snaps on the street - the Minitar holds on to the faces of friends and foes alike.
The LC-Wide is definitely one of Lomography's must-have cameras. Its Minigon 1 Ultra-Wide-Angle lens adds a different flavor to your shots, on top of the stunning vignettes, intense colors and breathtaking saturation and contrast LC-A cameras are known for. The Lomography Team is no stranger to the LC-Wide's creative potential, and has proven it capable of the most captivating images. First on the list is danika, from the Lomography Headquarters in Vienna.
The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
