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.
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.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
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.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

With exceptional craftsmanship and features, the New Russar+ is indeed a fine piece of photographic gear. It's then only but right to photograph only the best images with this lens. That being said, here are a few tips to help you not only find the appropriate subjects, but also properly frame and capture them.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
One of the things that make a trip to a far-flung place truly memorable is getting the chance to interact with the locals and share fun moments with them. Five years ago, disdis was able to do exactly that on a trip to Zinguinchor, Senegal, and it goes without saying that it was most certainly one for the books.
