    LomoKino Review: Welcome To Real LomoMovies

    When I was told I was going to be given the opportunity to test a new Lomography product I felt so excited. I received a wonderful package and it reminded me of great noir films from the 40’s and 50’s. The name sent me straight back to my childhood and all those family movies made with the Super 8. I opened that wonderful box and here it was - A light and mysterious black box with a very small 25mm lenses.

Frederic agreed to help me with the project I wanted to make for Lomography – This is the story behind my first LomoKino movie!

    LomoKino Review: An Introducion To The Kino

    A camera that records entire scenes - It captures movement, colour, moments, and scenery! With just the turning of a handle, whilst glimpsing through the viewfinder to imagine your scene correctly, you can create a movie. An analogue movie. Who would of thought that Lomography would go that far? I sure didn’t, but what do you know? They surprised me again with the LomoKino!
