Would you like to get into Lomography, but you don’t know where to start? Or do you have friends who want to try out come cameras but they’re not really sure which camera is right for them? If you answered “YES” to any of those questions, let us direct you to the Lomography Beginners Guide. This section of the Online Shop can help you out by categorizing the cameras by the photos they take or by their price.
The Ideas by Photo section lets you have a look at the photos each of the Lomography Cameras can produce so you can make a comparison of potential shots you can take. Each photo has the camera underneath so you can easily click the link to make a purchase. If you’re on a certain budget, we can help with that as well. Once you’ve chosen some cameras you’d like, you can sort the cameras by price and pick out the cameras from each budget cluster.
Shopping for cameras has never been easier in the Online Shop!

Do you know what’s special about today? Well, today is the birthday of Nicolaus Copernicus, a great renaissance polymath who formulated a scientific model which places the Sun at the center of the universe instead of the Earth. Though this may be far from more modern findings about the earth, this didn’t stop Lomography from releasing a special edition La Sardina Camera in his name which shows several celestial bodies in the night sky. The La Sardina and Flash Copernicus has a plastic body adorned with various constellations and astronomical illustrations, much like the ones Nicolaus Copernicus himself studied more than 500 years ago!
Try out the La Sardina and Flash Copernicus and take shots of the night sky with its wide angle lens and bulb setting. It’s available in the Online Shop!

Hello Lomographers! Today’s pick of the week is Liane, one of the folks responsible for keeping Lomographers up to date when it comes to all things analogue. Let’s have a look at her responses.
Name: Liane Ng
LomoHome: lee07, http://www.flickr.com/photos/lee07
What you do at Lomography: I make sure you’re updated with the most interesting Lomography-related information through Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. I also do some FAQ writing.
Interests: Other than a lot of Lomography, I love lounging under the sun by the beach, attempt to go surfing and diving, travel within my means whenever I can and do a lot of food-tripping. I like discovering new music and I geek over gadgets and tech stuff. (A love for analogue doesn’t mean one can’t love technology)
Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers?
I’d start off with a Holga or a Diana F+ and eventually use a Lomo LC-A+ as my everyday camera.
My first Lomography cam is a Holga and I love everything about it (even if my first few rolls had nothing in them). It’s a great way to learn about kinds of film, distance to shoot, lighting, weather conditions and the bulb setting. The Holga taught me to be patient and not to worry about results too much. The output was always so fulfilling when I got the hang of it!
The best camera for me is still the Lomo LC-A+. It is compact and has given me the best photos that post-processing nor Instagram cannot replicate (and believe me, I love Instagram as well). Given the right slide film, it produces such stunning, high contrasting shots. The vignetting is my favorite. I love the camera so much that I own two LC-As.
Please attach a picture of yourself taken with a Lomography camera or Lomography film and tell us something about this picture (including the camera and/or film used).
This is me – a mix of analogue and digital. This is probably one of my first self-portraits with the Lomo LC-A+ years ago. I used an expired roll of Kodak Ektachrome 64 with it, had it cross-processed, and my artist friend Elvin Villar edited it. This is how I see Lomography – fun, free, and full of life!
Your message to Lomographers:
Step out into sunlight! One of the reasons why Lomography newbies get dark shots (or none at all) on their first few rolls is that they miscalculate lighting and sometimes shoot indoors. This isn’t such a bad thing – but do step out into daylight if you want those lovely and colorful shots. It’s a world of adventure and life when there’s sun!
Thanks a lot, Liane! Hopefully the newbies will take your advice and have some fun under the sun!

Greetings, Lomographers! This week’s Staff Pick may be familiar to our Korean community members as she’s in charge of Lomography Korea. Let’s check out her responses.
Name: Heather Eom
What you do at Lomography: General Manager of Lomography Korea
Interests: Pop Art, Editorial Design, Hip-hop, Travelling, Scribbling, Clubbing
Which Lomography product would you recommend to readers? My most favorite camera La Sardina
Why? Easy to use, Easy to carry, affordable price but charming outcomes.
Please attach a picture of yourself taken with a Lomography camera or Lomography film and tell us something about this picture (including the camera and/or film used). One relaxed day, I was hanging out with store staff by shooting at LGS Seoul. I asked a cutest guy staff majoring in Photography to take a picture of me. He took the entire roll and even gave directions on my pose. After that, we started calling him ‘The Enthusiastic Shooter’
Your message to Lomographers: ’Don’t think, just shoot!’
Thanks, Heather! Until next time, readers!
In the spirit of keeping film photography alive, Lomography has decided to release another exciting addition to its expansive film collection. The LomoChrome 400 Purple Film is a unique color negative film that will sweep your off your feet as it transforms every green element of your photo into a radiant purple. It’s a revival of the psychedelic infrared look of the Kodak Aerochrome. Available in both 35mm and 120 format, this easy to develop color negative film doesn’t require complicated filters and lights to achieve that infrared effect thanks to its 400 ISO.
The first rolls of the LomoChrome 400 Purple Film will be available in July, but you can pre-order then right now at the Online Shop!
