For rangefinder collectors and hobbyists on deadstock cameras, Zorki 4K (a post-release after the Zorki 4) is quite a present for Lomographers.
Created during the 70’s, Zorki 4K is a Russian Leica II inspired camera. The best thing about this camera is that it has an additional wind-on lever for advancing the film and it has an intact take-up spool!

Zorki 4K can bring enjoyment to your own Lomo-life! You can bring ’em wherever you go: beach, mountains, farm, city, the downtown or inside your bathroom! With a detachable lens (Jupiter-8; a remarkable lens that knocks off your feet) it can take sharp pictures with an easy-go! There are many features, too! Choices of shutter speeds (1/1000 to B), apertures, and a self-timer, this camera knocks out pictures that takes you back in time. All in all, the Zorki 4K can give results that would make you smile: be it classic or modern.
Before the end of 2014, my girlfriend took the plunge of purchasing a rangefinder camera from eBay as a late Christmas gift for me. Let me present to you: the Fed 5. The Fed 5 has been known as a copy of the Leica M3 rangefinder camera. It is inexpensive compared to Leica models. So what are my experiences of using the Fed 5? Read on to find out more.

They were 90,000 strong and oozing with love for Mick, Keith, Ron, Bill and Charlie. High school teacher Joseph Szabo captured the great gathering using three 35mm cameras. These photos are now considered collector's items and will be released in a 2015 edition of "Rolling Stones Fans".
Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!
Lily & Madeleine are sisters from Indianapolis who have charmed audiences on both sides of the Atlantic with their heavenly harmonies. They are just about to release their new album titled "Fumes." Lomography caught up with them on a recent trip to the United Kingdom and gave them each a La Sardina camera to shoot with. Meet them after the jump.
On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
