If LomoKino was a gun then it shoots with 35mm bullets and with such great effect! The vintage feel of the movies shot with the black and white film creates an instant longing for the classic old-school reel and the clicking of the projector. But don’t fret, you can still use the LomoKino to create movies with audio for the complete movie-making experience!
