How do I focus and shoot with the LomoKino?


Setting the focus on the LomoKino is a breeze because if you are over 1m away from your movie subject you don’t have to do a thing!

If you are between 1m and 0.6m, then you can focus by holding the close-up button on the front of the LomoKino as you shoot.

Setting the Aperture

The LomoKino has continuous aperture settings between f/5.6 and f/11 – This means that you can smoothly adjust the aperture at any time as you shoot.

A larger aperture (f/5.6) means that more light will enter the camera, and a smaller aperture (f/11) means less light will enter the camera – So use a larger aperture if you want your movie brighter, and vice versa.

Shooting your movie

To shoot with your LomoKino, just lock the advancing crank in position and turn it forward at your desired speed – Your LomoKino will shoot at approximately 1/100 shutter speed.

If you turn the advancing crank at full speed, you can reach 3-5 frames per second when filming. When you are shooting, you should be able to see the rewinding wheel turning.
