Celebrities & Cameras at Cannes!

Cannes guests are known to document every picturesque moment at the film festival, so it's no surprise that even celebrities tote around their cameras on the red carpet. From the Spinner 360's famous photos with Brad Pitt to papparazzi pics from festivals past, see stars taking snapshots here!

Of course, we have to start with Lomography’s shining Cannes moment: Brad Pitt & Andrew Dominik with the Spinner 360 at a press photocall and on the red carpet of the 65th Cannes Film Festival!

And this isn’t the first time the Hollywood actor and director have been spotted with Lomography cameras. In 2007, Brad had the Fisheye No. 2 at the 64th Venice Film Festival and was taking photos of Andrew!
