The oldie but a goodie LOMO Smena 8M pops up in the opening and closing credits of National Geographic's Adventure's Blog Notes. What does this mean you ask? Simple. Nat Geo gets it: Lomography = adventure. Watch the clip after the jump!
The Smena 8M recently began showing its pretty lens on the Nat Geo Adventure television network. The Russian beauty pops up during the beginning and ending graphics of Blog Notes, which features video blogs from adventurers around the world.
The opening graphics include icons of travel, with the Smena 8M representing travel photography. At the end of each Blog Notes episode, the Smena pops up again (bigger this time) and snaps a photo.
Nat Geo Adventure network is associated with the National Geographic Society famous for its amazing photos from around the world. Besides the camera’s good looks, why did Nat Geo choose the Smena for the Blog Notes graphics? Perhaps one of the NGA networks graphic designers is a fellow Lomographer?

Look for the Smena early in the opening graphics and again in the closing credits.
