    My LomoStory: Sthomas68

    You're never too old to go back to analogue! I remember saving up babysitting money to purchase my first analogue camera, the Polaroid One, in 1979. I was so thrilled to own my very own instant camera! I worked extra hard at household chores to earn money for my precious packs of 600 film. Every time we'd go to the drugstore I'd have to stock up because you just never knew when a photo opportunity would arise.

    The Shkolnik

    The Shkolnik ("Student" or "Pupil" in English) camera was a rather obscure Russian plastic camera manufactured by the BELOMO plant in Belorussia between 1962-1969. About 500000 of these simple box cameras were made between 1962-1969. It shoots 120 6x6 film with a fixed focal lens of about 75mm. Best focusing range is 3.5 meters to infinity.
