Drowned World Experiment: Underwater Camera X LC-A+

Creating a whole new world where land and water collides is now just a few clicks and tricks away. This is my experiment on loading a Kodak Ektachrome 100 GX on an underwater camera then loading it on an LC-A+ for doubles.

Summer has always called everyone to rush out of town and head to the beach. It has been a same old ritual ever since, being situated in a place where sunny and rainy are the only two interchanging weather. Well, nothing beats a good trip to the beach and tagging an underwater camera and LC-A+ to capture all the fun. However this time, I decided to go a little more creative and try something that I haven’t done before. It was one heck of another film risking moment for me.

I have just bought a new underwater camera; the Marine X3 Underwater Camera, which has an automatic film forward and rewind function, and a flash. Its casing protects it from water coming in, at the same time, allowing clear image capture underwater, especially when loaded with a good slide/expired film like the Kodak Ektachrome 100 GX…not to mention some good amount of summer sun too. Since all of the shots would be underwater, creating a new world can be made possible through doubles! After finishing the film from the underwater camera, I again loaded it on my LC-A+ after rewind and decided to shoot almost anything above ground; from road signs, sidewalks, buildings, etc.

Not knowing what would come out would make you all anxious, but then, if you’re willing to take a risk, your courage will be rewarded.

The Lomo LC-A+ is known worldwide for its amazing features: automatic exposure, extended ISO range, and multiple and long exposure capabilities. Get your own Lomo LC-A+ now!
