Searching on Lomography: Faster Than Ever


Searching for something can never be too fast – we've spent the last days tweaking the search on Lomography and can now present you the result.

We hope it’s that fast…

Wanna give it a try? Type something in the search field on the top right or try one of these searches: fisheye, actionsampler, holga, diana, diana mini, piggies, fixed gear, lubitel, vienna, orangebird, scanner, sprocket rocket, love, smena, melbourne, fuji instax wide and redscale (these are the most popular ones this year).

Let us know if the search is faster for you, too! And post your favorite searches in the comments!

    I still don't understand how can I find lomo homes from some particular city. When I type palermo in search line, lomo locations do come up, but not the lomo homes

    @neja: sorry for the late reply: we are looking for a way to include city and country to the search results. but as the index is created only at certain times and the privacy setting can change, we have to find another way of doing so…

    @recurving Can you use boolean operators in searches? It would be good to be able to use ", +, - and * to increase accuracy or truncate searches. When i've tried before i've had limited success. Being able to exclude search terms from a broader search would be really good. Thanks

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

    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 won't be reflected on 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.

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
