    Holga 120 SF: The Original Holga Love

    The Holga 120SF is my very first Lomographic camera (I bought it 2004) and I immediately felt in love with it, and thus, with the whole Lomographic spirit later on. Sure, Holga is well known by all lomographers, but what makes the Holga 120 SF so special?

    Foma Fomapan (120, 400 iso) User-Review

    What on earth can Fomapan do? You will never know what to expect what a cheap B&W film like this can do unless you've tried it yourself. You cannot count on other people's opinion this time around. Let your camera take this fine and nice Fomapan Black & White film to go out shooting with you.

    A selection of shots here to show you from my very first few rolls shot with the new Lubitel 166+.

    LC-A: Refurbishing the Light

    Henry Miller once said, "One's destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things." I muse at what wonders Mr. Miller could have made with a refurbished LC-A, the lightweight yet sturdy, functionally versatile yet magically spontaneous little black Russian that continues to inspire a global community of analog souls.

    Zero Image Pinhole Camera

    This camera is the one I like the most and use the most, (note my nickname: cameraO(bscura), because it brings you back to the roots of photography, and it is always a surprise, whats coming out when you have developed the film.

    Kodak Kodachrome SW (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

    Upon seeing the label "Kodakchrome SW" I immediately got excited! I thought, "A black and white slidefilm?" (SW = schwarz weiß which means black and white). And so I asked the owner of the photostore about it and he answered “no, no, It means Satured Warm."

  • Canon AE-1: The Workhorse

    Canon AE-1: The Workhorse

    Over this past summer, I took a Black and White photo class at my college. A week before the class I was panicking because I didn't have a 35mm SLR to use in the class. I work at Starbucks and one of my regular customers, Mike, happened to come in one day and I told him my problem. "I have this old Canon I don't use any more and I've been wanting to sell it. How about I let you borrow it and if you like it, you can buy it?" That sounded awesome to me. So long story short, Mike ended up just giving me the camera and 3 lenses for nothing(50mm f/1.8, 80-200mm Zoom f/4.5, and a 28mm f/2.8). This camera soon became my workhorse, and it never leaves my bag.

    Zenit EM

    Zenit - Solid as brick, precision as AK-47. Every lomographer should have on of those classic machines. I own Zenit EM. My brother was using it when he was a kid and now, after 20 years of waiting, my time has come. I could say that was love at first sight.

    B.W. 100 (35mm, 100 iso) user-review

    Subtle and Rough: B.W., is that slide, negative, color, b&w? Yes its obviously black and white, and yes the brand is as easy to pronounce as utopia.

    Yashica Samurai X3.0 – Half Format SLR

    I don`t know where I first heard of this camera, but it must be something like love at first sight. But it could have also been something like "This thing is so ugly, I got to have it!" Most people will think you have a film camera because of its futuristic look. The film will be transported vertical instead of horizontal, which gives you the normal landscape format. Other half frame cameras must be turned to upright format to get the result of an landscape format. Confused?

    LC-A Refurbished: Can't Get My Hands Off You!

    LCA is the camera i bring out everyday. The day without LCA in my bag i will feel weird, it is already part of my life. When i first join lomography, i bought a fisheye and a colorsplash. But as time goes by, i realized more and more people are using lomo LCA, and I asked, "What so great about this camera?", and i found out the reason very soon as i browse through other lomographer's lomohome. I found that the picture that taken by LCA are saturated in color and it is very contrast, and that is what I'm looking for.

  • Holga 135

    written by stinketier on 2008-11-14 in #reviews
    Holga 135

    The Holga 135 is the little brother (or sister) of the great classic and legendary Holga. The Holga 135 is a small plastic camera for 35mm films. This is the first big difference to the classic Holga. Another difference is, that the Holga 135mm is, of course, a bit smaller. But one thing is still the same, the plastic lens. You get really soft and dreamy pictures with this camera on a 35mm film, so you don't have to modify your old Holga.

    Be Lomo - Chaika II

    Chaika II was produced by the Belomo factory in Belarus (then in the USSR) between 1967 and 1972. Chaika means “seagull”. It has the same camera body as the original, but with several minor changes.

  • Holga 120 WPC

    Holga 120 WPC

    Easy to use and hold no viewfinder, ultrawide panoramic image, versatile framing a typical Holga. Imagine your well loved Holga going through a mangle and what comes out is a sort of strange comic version of the original but twice the width. A recent addition to the ever growing world of Holga this fills another gap...a very wide one.

    Actionsampler - 0,66 Seconds of Action

    When I first saw this camera I didn`t think I would ever get one, since I thought that the Supersampler would be better, But now that I have both I don`t think that way! Actually, I would probably tell a lomo-newbie to get both of them, starting with the Actionsampler!
