Lomomod
Camera

The LomoMod No.1 Kit is the combination of two incredible innovations: a flat-packed DIY cardboard camera that can be easily assembled entirely from scratch in the comfort of your own home, alongside a lens that can be filled with liquids of your choice to create unforeseen effects. Made from sustainable cardboard, its double-sided design is only the element in the LomoMod’s endless potential for customization. The kit comes with a shutter and aperture unit, offering not only the fun and satisfaction of building something from the bottom up, but also the joy of experimenting with photography.

Build

To build the LomoMod, pop the parts out from the cardboard sheets, being careful not to crease, bend or break them. Then just follow the manual to push the parts together, no glue or screws required! If necessary, use a sharp knife (if you're a young Lomographer, ask an adult to help you!), or tape, to ensure the parts fit tightly together!

Experiment

Fill your Sutton lens with liquids to open up a world of magical effects. Simply draw a liquid of your choice into a syringe, open up the circular dial and inject the fluid. You just have to watch out for bubbles, and be sure to dilute your liquid, then the rest is entirely down to you!

Share

The double sided design is just the start! The LomoMod is a canvas for you to rework, remould, colour, stick and paint on. Keep your eyes peeled for tips, ideas and customizations and be sure to share your creations with us - we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Build

The LomoMod is simple to build and takes approximately 2 hours to put together. The manuals on the website are constantly updated and you can download them to your phone or computer use wherever you are. But, for those of you looking for an extra challenge, there is endless scope for modification and customizing your camera, from pinhole practice, to paint!

Experiment

We’re certain the LomoMod is going to make you feel inspired, but to get your creative juices flowing even more, we’ve assembled a series of articles to let you know all about the journey so far - what we wanted to do with the project and what makes this camera so unique. There’s never been so much scope for experimentation!
