I bought this Medion Scanner a few months ago at my local Aldi store (in France, I don't know if they sell them in other countries). I didn't know what to expect from this scanner as it was really cheap (If I remember well, it was 30 Euros). In the end, I have to say I'm very happy with this product!
What’s inside the box? All these things:
The installation CD.
4 plastic supports to put your negatives in.
A cleaner for your negatives.
And of course, the scanner with a cable.
So basically, you just need to open the support, put your negative in it and put it inside the scanner. Yes, it’s THAT easy! :)
And after this easy step, you open the really easy-to-use software:
You just open the program, click on “capture” and TA-DA!! Wait a few seconds and here is the picture!
The pictures are automatically saved on your computer, you don’t need to do anything, they are ready to be uploaded on your great LomoHomes! :)
You can change some settings (quality of image, negative or B/W, 35mm or 110)
It is really easy and fast! You only need a few minutes to scan a full roll!
And I was very pleased to see that the results are good!
Here are some examples of what I got:
Did someone else have the opportunity to buy this scanner? What do you think of it?
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
This is a film soup that I came up with a long time ago but was not happy about it at all. In fact, I've slightly modified it for this tipster that I'm about to share with you. Read on to find out more.

Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
