Scene on the mighty Mekong River, Vietnam

Shots taken with the wonderfully vivid Kodak Elite slide film during a fantastic three-week trip I made to Vietnam in 1997.

The slides were scanned by Jessops, a high-street chain in the UK, and I must say I'm pleased with the results, even though the resolution is not particularly high. Considering these are slides from 15 years ago, they've lost almost nothing of their colour, contrast or punchy vibrance. That's testament to how fantastic the Elite Chrome film is, I guess.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
