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:
