Gunning for the director feel and the classic analogue movie effect? Look no further, the LomoKino will be key to your directorial debut. Lights, camera, action!
The *LomoKino* is Lomography’s darling movie maker. Capture your vision on 35mm film and shoot your way to the silver screen on 144 frames with every crank of the lever with this compact movie camera. All you need is a director’s chair, actors and maybe even a clapper for that overall movie buff effect.
Short movies are the way to go with the LomoKino. But that doesn’t mean those are all you can make with this analogue movie maker. Amass the creativity and vision you need, and use different rolls of 35mm film and you can make your own full-length movie. You can even add your own music and special effects as you go. Throw in a hot shoe flash, a *LomoKinoscope* and grip for the total package and you’re all set.
Use all kinds of film: experiment with your LomoKino and used color negative films, black and white, X-Pro, redscale… the list goes on and on!
Easy focusing: focus easily with the 0.6m to infinity focus setting.
Set your aperture: control the lighting that you need for your film with settings from f/5.6 to f/11 even when you’re shooting.
Grab a tripod: use a tripod with the LomoKino to create smooth and steady film shots.
Flash your way to the silver screen: use the hot-shoe mount to your advantage and attach your favorite flash on your LomoKino for amazing stop-motion movies and remarkable lighting.
Rapid fire: shoot 3-5 frames per second with the advancing lever and just crank away.
Check your movie progress: use the LomoKino’s volume display to see how much film you’ve used on your movie. A red flag on top of the camera means “cut!”

Sample these short and sweel films to see the LomoKino in action:
The auteurs and maestros of world cinema are lined up at Cannes 2015, and we are utterly inspired. Directorial flair makes still photographs move in that illusory, story-driven way. Are your lights and cameras ready for action?
In this article I’m going to review the LomoKino's key features, show you how to load the film, and share some tips on shooting and editing a movie. I will also show you a short stop motion movie that I made with this camera.
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline. For it to be coherent, one must keep his focus throughout the entire process - from shooting the scenes to editing the clips. With that, we are truly grateful for the effort that these lomographers put into making these LomoKino movies.

Lomography welcomes another classic gear to its Art Lens lineup. The rebooted Jupiter 3+ is now compatible with mirrorless digital cameras, all Leica L39, and Leica M mount range-finders. Get expert focusing or some bokeh furnishes—let your mood take you. As for the technical nitty-gritty, a comprehensive microsite awaits.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires an extra effort. For it to be coherent, one must stay focused throughout the entire process - from planning the story, shooting the scenes, to editing the clips. We'd like to commend these lomographers for taking an extra step to keep the spirit of analog movie making alive!
