Little is known about this odd-looking camera from Vivitar but one thing’s for certain; shooting with it is going to be fun especially with its lens switching feature!
One look at the Vivitar DL50 camera can induce a surge of curiosity. The DL50’s odd face consisting of two lenses may actually fool users into believing that it is some sort of a twin lens reflex camera or a multi-lens shooter.
The Vivitar DL50 is actually a 35mm shooter with auto focus and fixed lens. The two lenses in front of the camera can be rotated to accommodate wide-angle shots and tele distance shots. It also has a built-in flash that can be switched on and off depending on the shooting conditions.
Photos produced by the Vivitar DL50 strike a balance between sharp and dreamy. The resulting photos taken with the wide-angle lens creates moody lo-fi shots with noticeable vignetting and grain. All in all, the DL50 can be a fun alternative to bulky SLRs and more modern point-and-shoot cameras with its simple features and curious appearance.
Vivitar DL50 Technical Specifications:
ISO: 100, 200 and 400
Viewfinder: Direct optical viewfinder
Lens: Wide and Tele lens
Batteries: Two AA batteries

Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
What’s not to love about the Lomo LC-Wide? If you are a fan of wide angle lenses or Lomography, you probably have one in your collection. The LC-Wide is a powerful camera with many fun features to get creative when shooting. Best of all, all these are already built into the camera.
Judging by the design alone, this panoramic camera looks every bit the panoramic camera it says it is. What's special about it is not the fact that it shoots on 120 film, but rather it was handmade at a home workshop.
