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.

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.

Rapid fire: shoot 3-5 frames per second with the advancing lever and just crank away.
