Whilst we were running the Kickstarter campaign for the Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner, we gave people the option to pledge for a trip to visit Lomography HQ in Vienna. Last week, two of our backers, Michiel and Steve, made the journey and we had a great time with them! Read after the jump to hear what they go up to and see some photos from their stay.
On Tuesday last week, Steve arrived from the US and Michiel from the Netherlands (we gave them a little Lomography welcome pack to say thanks for making the trip to come and see us!). On Wednesday and Thursday, we spent time with them at Lomography HQ. The guys were shown how to build a LomoWall in the Archive and got to practice their photo development skills in the LomoLab. We went out for a few meals together and also gave them a photo tour of central Vienna. Whilst here, Michiel and Steve also got the chance to pick the leather on a custom-made LC-A camera and had a chat with the Lomography founders. Then, on Friday evening, we met up again for dinner and a party, Lomography style! Thanks again for taking the trip guys, was a pleasure spending time with you!
We have made great strides toward our funding goal for the Lomography New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens on Kickstarter. But the campaign is still in full swing! In this post, we list remaining pledges and aperture plate rewards.
Just five days into our latest Kickstarter campaign and we've easily hit three stretch goals, thanks to your overwhelming support. We're inching our way to the next one at $750,000, and if we hit this mark, we have another awesome reward in store for all our backers!
It's only been three hours since our Kickstarter campaign for the Lomography New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens was launched, yet we've already reached the $100,000 funding goal. A huge thanks to our awesome backers!
Lomography is proud to have such a supportive community. Within days of our Kickstarter launch, we, along with hundreds of backers, surpassed three stretch goals. The next feat is $50,000 more towards our $750,000 mark. We are excited to offer more slots (and rewards) for Petzval enthusiasts!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pride that we bring you the newest member of Lomo'Instant family: the stunningly beautiful Lomo'Instant Kyoto Edition! To give it a warm welcome to our brand new jewel, sneaked out from our HQ in Vienna and went in search of a truly enlightening adventure.
Dale McCready is a cinematographer working in the film/ TV industry and has worked on programmes such as Doctor Who and Merlin. He was one of our supporters for the Petzval Kickstarter campaign and recently used the lens to film for a new BBC drama, which is due out in March. Dale kindly shared some of his Petzval photographs with us and talked about his love for this lens. Read on for the full interview.
To celebrate the classic Petzval Lens born in Vienna, we grabbed a New Petzval, left the office in the dust and went out into the beautiful golden day for a shoot among the historic hot-spots in the original city of music. Read on to see more of our imperial-themed photo shoot!
