Needless to say, last week was a crazy one for us here at Lomography. In our quest to deliver the best to readers and community members, we might have offered you a little too much!

Last Thursday, we introduced a new and exciting product designed to bring analogue vibes to digital lovers out there: The Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.

This brand new innovation is compatible with all Micro 4/3 cameras and allows you shoot anything, from portraits, landscapes, architecture, still life, or any other subject under the sun. This super creative lens kit comes with three lenses: standard 24mm, wide-angle 12mm and fisheye; and will let you take wide-angle, fisheye, and multiple exposure shots, delight in exciting photographic effects and tint your images with color filters.

Got questions? Visit this page for the answers. View the Experimental Lens Kit Site or get yours in the Online Shop.

But of course we could never forget our hyper-creative loyal analogue lovers, and presented the New La Sardina DIY Black, a wonderful reincarnation of our well-loved La Sardina that allows you to express your innate creativity through your very own DIY design ideas.

Here are a few design ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.

    Painting Delights: Going Wild with the Pixelstick

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in. "Life is a fairy tale, stay wild little child!" is what they want to tell us. Bringing light to life became the next challenge for anyone rigged with a film camera and a creative mind. Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
