All Photos on a Zoomable Map

16

Back when we launched a new visualization of all photos on a map, a lot of people asked to make this map zoomable – this is what we tried to do and here is the result.

You can find the experiment in our playground (not anymore, please read the update below). Please note: this is an early demostration and might be a bit slow – we just wanted to have it online to see its performance and get some intitial feedback from you, our dear community. Thanks!

Update: Due to some performance issues we’ve put the experiment down again. We will resolve these issues and put it online again, we just don’t want this to affect the performance of the site. Thanks for your nice feedback so far – happy to see you like it!

    @all: sorry we had to deactivate this feature – testing it with all of you showed us the speed bottlenecks. We are working on those and bring it back again, no worries!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."

    Nature & Culinary Delights With The New Petzval Lens and Feldküche

    Feldküche is a group that organizes dinner parties with a difference by cooking wonderful meals for groups throughout the Austrian countryside. This summer, we gave them a New Petzval lens to use in capturing their wonderful gatherings of people, food, drink and nature. We then got the opportunity to chat with Martin Fetz who runs the organization about what they do and their experiences shooting with the Petzval.
