    i'm in! bought my elikon 535 at a flea market for a mere $5. can i use the same write-up i submitted here for the camera review?

    yes and yes... as long as you got the camera for $50 and under it is fine... and you can submit the same review if you wish, or change it up... i guess it depends on if you still feel the same way about your camera, or if your feelings have changed... ;)

    I got the HOLGA 35MM (NOT BLACK CORNER) but I forgot how much I bought it from the lomography shop.

    im from the uk so im guessing we have to have a camera under around the £25 mark!
    im not sure whether to use my Praktica LTL or i have a Pentax auto 110 which would be quite cool to use!
    this should be a fun one!

    can it be an old vintage cam? i mean, like ebay style purchase?

  9. ouroborosx

    @ revamp: indeed it can... any FILM camera that you bought for under $50... it doesn't need to be a Lomography camera, just a FILM camera that works and that you can post a complete roll of film from... pretty cool, huh? :)

    Can I post more than one (1) cam/review?

    I bought a bunch of cameras in Ukraine this summer (Kiev 4A, BeLomo Vilia, Kiev 30M, Zenith ET) all for less than $30 each...

    This is an exciting contest =)

    where are am i going to publish? had bought a $50 dollar less camera, had fun shooting with it, and have now tons of photos to post. the problem is: where?

    click on the link above and go to the epic edits page that describes exactly how to submit... basically, you're going to have to upload your photos somewhere on the net and then submit to them a link... perhaps make an album on your lomohome, then link them to the album?

    Awesome!!!! I have a ton of cameras that I got for under $50! I guess that "antique film camera" obsession is going to pay off!
