MiniMovies Are Back!


Here is some news many of you will have been hoping for – Lomography MiniMovies are back! Read on for details on how to create fun cinematic clips from all your photos!

Credits: the-vnuk

We’ve had so many requests to re-introduce our MiniMovie feature that we just couldn’t refuse – So crack open a bag of popcorn because here it is folks, back and as fresh as the day it left! For those of you who aren’t familiar with them, MiniMovies allow you to produce fun cinematic moving images from and of your photos – Just click on one of your photos that you’d like to turn into a movie and hit the ‘Create MiniMovie’ tab above it to start directing your masterpiece – Check out this simple video guide on how to create your first movie:

Of course, MiniMovies lend themselves perfectly to photos you’ve taken with Multilens cameras such as the Supersampler, Actionsampler and Oktomat – But you can use the feature with any photo you like, so go on and experiment!

Post the links to your MiniMovies in the comments below, we can’t wait to see the cool movie ideas you guys come up with!

    This picture looks very nice and fresh, makes me wanna use my old action sampler camera again! It's so many effects you can do by moving yourself (or let your subject move) or just by moving the camera and shoot a still subject. It's also perfect with children who are always active!

    This is fun and it would be great if we could save the MiniMovie as a separate item (rather than viewing it from the photos page only).

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    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.
