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

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
