Everything is Perfect with Horizon Perfekt

24

Last year - 2007 - I don't have any lomo camera with me. Suddenly my friend invited me to his house. We started to browsing and he showed me the result me the microsite of Horizon in www.lomography.com. I just remember we are starring and drooling seeing the gallery of kozyndan in the broaden your horizon gallery in the microsite. I tell myself " I have to own this dream panorama machine"

One year after that which is now (year 2008), I asked to my dad “pop,can I buy that camera?” as I show horizon perfekt camera in the Horizon microsite (again!), then my dad say’d “okay but I have to see the result of camera first” and I was so excited to show all horizon shots in the microsite. Couples of days after that I bought my own Horizon Perfekt, it was really a dream come true! I was so very very very heavily happy on that day and I was jumping around because all the excitement after owning my dream camera. I decided to name it Phoenix and I don’t know why I name it Phoenix ;p.

As you can see below on my gallery, I took my horizon everywhere with me from Streets to Supermarket to the hills,in the car and the important thing is I reallly enjoy my quality time with Phoenix the Horizon Perfekt. I’m fond of the camera design it is so solid and the colour is black (my favorite colour) and the sticker of the lomogirl in front of the camera just was really cool it reminds me to my lovely girlfriend ;p

So I think this is a dream come true to owned the Horizon Perfekt, Dream Panorama Machine.

Come on people buy one and see things in a really different perpective! LOMO ON!

    I dream this camera since when I known lomography.com, but damn it's too much expensive.
    As you'd say:
    horizon perfekt + 150 euro = hasselblad 501cm

    :)

    Yeah, the Horizon is a dream camera, I'm always amazed of the shots it can produce.... I "only" have the Kompakt who is almost as good as the Perfekt, beside the different settings you can choose, BUT has the very easy double exposition possibility...
    And if I could add the Perfekt to my camera collection.... ;)))
    HORIZON RULES!!!!!

    @adi_totp

    my first horizon 202 broke, i got a new one since it was still under warranty and my 2nd 202 broke, and when it did it was around the same time the kompakt and perfekt came out so i didnt send it in because someone told me that since there is no more 202 that i could not replace it with the kompakt, so i have a broken horizon 202 just sitting at home.
    oh well, i gotta save some money for a new 1, maybe for xmas

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
