Yes I know everyone's already done an LC-A+ review ans it's so overdone, but it's such a great camera!
My first Lomography camera was a Fisheye no.2. This opened me the the world of Lomography. I decided to save up my money for a LOMO LC-A+. I bought it in May and my life hasn’t been the same ever since. This camera really does change lives. It’s so nice and small you can bring it everywhere (like school!). The light meter is fantastic. It lets me use low grain film (iso 100) in slightly darker places than normal, if my hand is steady enough. I love how you really don’t know what you’re going to get. The vignetting really does wonders, especially when cross processing!
I’ve used an old LC-A before and I have to say the LC-A+ is better. The light meter and cable release are worth it, so is the warranty. Without that warranty, I would probably not have a camera anymore, since i dropped it in the summer and the take-up spool broke. LSI New York was so nice and just gave me a new one :D. In conclusion, the LC-A+ is a fantastic camera, nothing I have ever used before. I’ve taken about 30-40 rolls with this since i got it, not every picture great, but the ones that came out are great.
Where do I begin talking about film cameras on the Lomography Magazine? Yes, you guessed right. I will begin with a LOMO, of course, a very special one: the Lubitel 166 Universal (Lubitel 166U). It’s a camera that has almost everything you might need from a camera. Plus, it’s a LOMO!
When I held the Lomo LC-A 120 in my hands for the first time, I immediately noticed its good feel and beautiful design. The LC-A 120 obviously, is truly, related to the queen of all Lomo cameras, the LC-A.
Lomography has previously shown you the kind of shots that one could take with the new Lomo LC-A 120. Now, with the first batch already shipped out and arriving to their lucky owners, it's the community's turn to show everyone what they've been shooting with this awesome camera!
The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.
Children, ever curious and with an innate sense of wonder, ask a lot of questions. Often they're easy enough to answer, but sometimes there are those that leave the adults stumped and mulling over them. The history of the instant camera as we know it began with one such question.
Using my Canon EOS 20D, I already discovered the amazing bokeh effect of the Petzval Lens. So I was really excited to try it with my favorite digital hybrid camera, Olympus OM-D E-M5. Just attach an adaptor and off you go!
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Remember C.S. Muncy? He's the New York-based freelance photojournalist who gave the New Petzval Lens a spin. Now he's got his hands on the Lomo LC-A 120 and we stumbled upon his detailed review on The Photo Brigade website. Here's an excerpt!
It's June already and that can only mean one thing - SUNSHINE! We've got a great line up of workshops and events this month so take advantage of the glorious weather and join us for some analogue adventures.
“Mommy, no!” Angela squealed as she tried to push the camera away from her face. Thankfully, Anita managed to take the shot and hold the gadget tightly, keeping it from harm’s way. It was already the third time her daughter reacted in such an averse manner at having her photograph taken, and by now she’s gotten really curious.
