    Lomography Diana+ - Staff Review

    A faithful reproduction of the '60s iconic camera of the same name, the Diana+ retains the best features and offers an all-new functionality. Back in the 1960s, a plastic camera made waves in Hong Kong. It was called the Diana - a lightweight medium-format camera manufactured by the Great Wall Plastics factory. It was inexpensive and easy to use, and can produce dreamy, soft-focus images that lo-fi enthusiasts go crazy about. The Diana was such a big hit, inspiring rival companies to make copies and knock-offs of the iconic camera.

    Hooked on the Fish

    Ridiculously fun, absolutely flexible and always dependable. I bought a Fisheye 2 Camera a year ago. It was supposed to be a platform for catharsis and the vehicle that would introduce me to the wonderful world of Lomography. Now countless rolls later and an arsenal of cameras at hand it remains to be the closest one to my heart.

    Luna The Fisheye No.2, My Lomo First Love

    To be honest this is my very first Lomography Camera. I bought this beautiful camera in 2007 as a birthday present from my parents. I bought it from Lomographic Society Indonesia. I just remember my heartbeat goes crazy when my fisheye no.2 arrived at my house. I run from my bedroom and take the fisheye no.2 from the delivery man. It was that happy excited feeling and that feeling always come when I bought a Lomography camera :)

    Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim

    The Vivitar Ultra wide and Slim is a pretty basic camera. It’s a small piece of plastic fully set (as in set aperture f11, a 1/125 shutter speed and fixed focus from 5ft to infinite) don’t have the fun bulb features, hot shoe, multiple exposures and don’t use any kind of battery, it’s a great camera to be used only in sunny days!

    Fisheye No. 2 - What I've Learned

    Surely we all know about the Fisheye 2 camera and its features by now - 170 degree perspective, double exposure "mx" button, "b" setting to allow endless opening of the shutter, and ability to distort objects. But during the past year or so, I've been documenting everything from road trips to everyday life with my Fisheye 2, and I've learned a few things through my experience.

    Fuji Superia (35mm, 400 iso) user-review

    Fuji Superia ISO 400 is the most popular film in my country, Indonesia. It may not be the most popular film around but everyone here uses it to put in their camera. With ISO 400 you'll get bright colours, yellow will get even more yellower and the red is much more redder if you use this film.

    Fed 2 Type 3

    I got one myself in a flea market but to be honest the seller is so scary. He is so tall and got some cool tattoos in his big hand. No I'm not gonna review the seller of this Fed 2 Type 3 and I got the maroon edition. All my friends says the brown is from the blood and I think they're so wrong! This Russian jewel is so lovely and the Industar lens makes the image so old and crisp yet still have that russian mood going on.

    Vivitar UWS - The Smallest Wide Angle Plastic Camera

    The Vivitar UWS (for Ultra Wide & Slim) is perhaps the smallest lightweight plastic camera that offers a wide angle lens of 22mm. The name of the camera describes it perfectly, this cam is really slim (only about 2,5 cm x 6,5 cm x10 cm) and the lens is really wide!

    Hot Saturday with Kodak Ektachrome EPR: One day I was walking to a film shop, then the shopkeeper says to me "hey lad,there is some expired 120 film and it's a positive one too",after she says that to me she hands me some box full of 120 film. It was that Kodak Ektachrome and also expired six years, (expired from year 2002) and after that I go hunting with my new expired film and my beloved Holga 120 CFN

    Seagull TLR 4B-1

    What can i say, the Seagull is an instant attention getter. How old is this? Where did you find it? Does it work? They don't expect this chunky camera to take the stunning pictures it does. This camera may be one of the reasons film is not dead.

    A little more than just being natural: This film is neither for the color-blind xpro maniacs or the other way around that likes to have it "__au naturelle__", but an ideal choice for those who wants to see what's something in between!

  • The Vilia and Me, a Deadstock Tragedy

    The Vilia and Me, a Deadstock Tragedy

    I had longed for something like the Vilia for a long time, manual controls,wickedly sharp and contrasty lens and a design that reeks of the long gone regime we all know as the Soviet Union. However, after receiving the camera itself I realized everything isn´t how you picture it to be, and getting there takes effort. Learning to know the camera is half the fun, but this was something else, this was like trying to get to know a deaf Chinese. And I don´t even speak Chinese.

    Lomography Supersampler

    The Supersampler is all about action and emotion. There is no time for rational objectivity with fast four-lensed freak. There isn't even a room for a space in its name. It's not a super sampler, it's Supersampler. Say it quickly. It's just not quite right if you don't.

    Kodak Ektachrome EPR (120, 64 iso) user-review

    Beautiful Kodak slide film with the finest grain size possible! This is my everyday film for all my medium format cameras. The Ektachrome EPR delivers the perfect color saturation and contrast which makes all your images dramatic and beautiful. When cross-processed, sometimes you’ll get a mild blue shit and a little extra color; but sometimes you’ll get these greens and yellows that are amazing too!

    Lucky film, happy shots: I bought my first Lucky SDH film on the lomoshop, firstly because I wanted to do some 120 b&w shots and secondly because it wasn't very expensive film...hmm, a chinese b&w film, I wondered what kind of results this could give with my Holga or my Rolleiflex...

    Oh Agfa, how could you break my heart and discontinue this beautiful, elegant film? This for me is the x-pro film of choice. Colour-shifts are intense without looking garish, contrast is beefed up without losing detail.
