A camera can only capture so much of what you see with your own eyes. It can crop out some subjects, blur some details, or focus on the wrong elements. But not Horizon cameras, the panoramic professional's choice.
You might think that premium panoramic cameras are only good for travel or special occasions, but you’ll be surprised at how they can alter your perception of everyday occurrences! With the ultra-wide and unique point-of-view (thanks to multicoated 120° swing lenses), see seemingly mundane tasks or droll daily happenings in a fresh new light!
The Horizon Perfekt and Kompakt are both the only Russian panoramic cameras produced today, and the only truly affordable options. It’s peers – the Hasselblad X-pan and the Noblex 135 cost several times the price, and can’t approach the old-school detail and charming Russian touches of the Zenit factory’s Horizon technicians.
The goat can see up to 340°. Lucky him! Thank goodness we have the Horizon camera to catch excellent views our own average eyes could never see. Check out the crème de la crème of panoramic vision here!
Photography is not only an act of documentation or communication, it is also a way of seeing the world. The camera opens our eyes and lets us see what lies behind the obvious, and we start looking at things as potential subjects of a photograph. Every leak of light unveils secrets that talented photographers turn into a piece of art. Li Hui is one of those gifted artists. We talked to her about her work and her sensitive photographs that picture a wonderful vulnerability.
If you are looking for some lomographic entertainment this month in your home city or if you are traveling the world and want some insider tips from our lomography teams, here’s a selection of what is going on in Lomography Gallery and Embassy Stores around the world.
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
Bastien Bonnarme is an action and lifestyle photographer from France. He took several Lomography cameras such as the LC-A 120, the Supersampler, as well as the Lomography Petzval 85 Art lens during this year's surf challenge.
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!
Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
