Kodak EC100: Simple and Effective Splash of Color

This little gem is the perfect way to play the Lomography game. Point, shoot, and enjoy the vivid results!

I never thought an uneventful trip to the market could yield such a lovely photo companion. I found my Kodak EC100 in the discount bin at an electronic market. It took $10 to purchase it and I gave them without ever looking back.

The camera at first, since it wasn’t very impressive to begin with (pocket-sized, grey, missing bells and whistles) was kept on a shelf for the first 3 months since I bought it.

But this just goes to show what you can miss out when you don’t take advantage of the small wonders in your life.

A bit more on the technical aspects, for those curious: it has a 30 mm lens (wide enough!), internal flash and it’s focus-free (so all you have to do is be on the look out and trigger-happy).

After filling it up with film for a party one random afternoon and shooting the role carelessly (after all, my expectations weren’t that high to begin with) it came as a complete surprise to see just how Lomographic this camera is.

All pictures came back with a beautiful color saturation (rich blues, greens and and reds most of all) and everything seemed to pulsate with life. All I can say is… I was hooked!

I wanted to share my discovery with the world because others should also know how easy it is to pass by some great find, just because you think a wonderful camera should look in a certain manner.

It serves as an example that surprises come from where you least expect them to and that being Lomo can be triggered by a simple toy, which you didn’t before give much thought to.
