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.
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.

I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!
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.
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
