Well, at first I had some hard time deciding on which camera to go after using my LC-A. Most of us cannot afford the Lomo LC-Wide that is why they choose not to get one. Fortunately, I decided to go for the Lomo LC-Wide (with the help of my piggies).
I did enjoy it and will be enjoying with it more. It is divinely awesome as it is a newer yet a complete version of LC-A and LC-A+. The Lomo LC-Wide has new functions which possess a forceful attraction to attract all crazy lomographers out who thirst for wild experiments.
I decided to take my time taking the same pictures with these 3 cameras (LC-A, LC-A+ RL Wide Angle Lens and LC-Wide) at the same distance and at the same time of the day. I loaded three of them with the same type which was Agfa Pro Pack 200. I wanted to compare how wide can the LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens and the Lomo LC-Wide go while making the LC-A as the constant.
Then I start shooting! (The order is LC-A, LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens, and LC-Wide). Here are some of the results:
Thoroughly, I made my LC-A as the constant when taking all the pictures. I purposely took some pictures which may be in limited sight to compare the wideness of the Lomo LC-Wide and the LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens. In terms of the quality of the pictures, I found that the Minigon lens from Lomo LC-Wide is awesomely sharp.
The LC-Wide made the colors to be rich and sharp at the same time too. Not to be forgotten, it is a freaking 17mm wide angle lens. On the other hand, the LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens enables you to take wide angle but in different form of distortions. It differs a bit on the focusing zone which you can make close-up images as close as 0.35m compared to LC-Wide which can be done only as close as 0.4m. Personally, at first I kinda like LCA+ Wide Angle Lens because of the circular-like distortions that I can get in most of the pictures but when comparing the color saturation and the sharpness, I think the LC-Wide is a winner.
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..."
My two passions are art and photography. For my first article about art on the Lomography magazine, I decided to visit "The Light Show" exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. I aimed to take as many creative photos of light installations as I can with my Lomo LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2.
Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the fantastic Lomo LC-A, and while waiting for the new Russar+ lens, I'll dedicate this article to an awesome super wide-angle camera: my Lomo LC-Wide that I like to use in architecture photography. Here you can read some simple tips I used to take a series of photos in the modern city of Latina in the center of Italy.
In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
On a sunny April Sunday, I decided to load a Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 on my new Lomo LC-A+; both bought few weeks ago from the Lomography Online Shop to take some photos of some Italian food stalls in the center of my city, Como. Here my first impressions about this interesting film.

Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!
This is the story of my first adventure on the beach this year. In the middle of June, I took my first sunbath along the seaside on a small public beach in Varazze - a rather small and unkempt place which I will never return to in the future. Read more to find out why!
I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

Just go with your gut and note down the letter for each answer you pick. And try to go with one single answer for each question. So, let's get started!
A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?
