    i-City Loves Analogue!

    We all know that film needs light to produce a perfect photograph which is why daytime offers the perfect opportunity to take photographs with your analog camera. But what do you do if you want to take photos during nighttime? How will you be able to work around the low light situation? Well if you happen to swing by Malaysia, i-City in Shah Alam definitely gives you all the light that you need to make stunning photographs.

    Does your Smena 8m works only on bulb mode? Have you broken its glass lens or you can't adjust the aperture anymore? Hmmm what should you do? Throw it in a bin? Woah! Just stop right here, it still can be useful, you know! How about making a pinhole camera with outstanding clock mechanism design, it's possible!

    Viewfinder From a Disposable Film Camera

    As you all know, the SMENA 8M is a very nice Russian camera. It's my newest camera ever since I wanted to try out manual functions of a 35mm compact camera! I still love my LC-A but the SMENA 8M gives you full control over your aperture and shutter speed. So I like to use my LC-A for occasions where its automatic function provides less hassle and SMENA 8M when I like to fiddle with my exposure settings.

    Experiencing Smena 8M: Never Gets Old

    I'm new to Lomography and I've been using the Smena 8M. I want others to know why I feel this camera is worthwhile. Don't think just shoot is not easy to apply to this kind of camera as it is very experimental. Just like doing an experiment when you got the variables to alter and adjust.

    Provia 100F - Cyan green or rich, natural tones? Your choice.

    Provia 100F - along with its faster brother Provia 400X - has rapidly become one of my favourite films for colour photography, and providing I'm expecting decent light, it's rare that I'm not carrying at least one roll of it in my bag.

  • Smena 8M

    Smena 8M

    The Smena 8M is a b-e-a-utiful piece of Russian deadstock. With a contrasty and saturated lens, dead-easy manual controls, and a look that says, “I AM RUSSIAN, I AM AWESOME” – with a fleeting glance at the bottom of the lens barrel – “I WAS MADE IN THE USSR!”, this babe is a hot one, but she’s pretty useful as well. The Smena can be used in two ways. Just as the manual illustrates, you can set it up in what I call my “snapshot mode” where the aperture is 16, the shutter corresponds to those little diagrams, and the depth of field is set perfectly so I have everywhere from one meter to infinity in crystal clear, saturated, contrasty view. However, with a fiddle of the aperture, and an attitude that says, “Screw you, little diagrams, I can take the REAL numbers!” –heck, I just peer aside the camera and there they are – the Smena has a whole new, creative potential. And of course, with its dead simplicity, the Smena is easily modifiable with awesome behind the lens “masks”, the sensational lens is PERFECT for x-pro, and a “re-cockable” shutter makes for insane multiple exposures.
