    sampler something?

  2. stratski

    A film projector that lets you play your negatives like a movie would be fun.

    By the way, that Brazilian film is awesome!

    Maybe a re-release of the Kalimar Actionshot 16? Link:
    But I still hope for a Lomo Movie Cam (LoMotion)!

    They've been posting about super 8's recently. I'm hoping its a video camera, but I could see some new action sampler/oktomat kind of deal.

  6. andredimu

    a Lomo Movie Cam will be cool!

    when is launch day?
    i'm so curious!

    A Lomography Super 8 film + developing at their stores would be cool. :)

  9. francois
    francois ·

    Since Super-8 is so hard to get in some places, a quarter frame 35mm motorized sampler would be fantastic. Just imagine 96 full motion frames on a single roll of 24 exposures!

  10. welland
    welland ·

    its something with a massive flash. Super8 is great but the only developing place I know of in Europe is in Germany and very very expensive

  11. duncancreamer

    An analogue version of God told me that it's a movie camera that runs on regular 35mm film. It will be silent and a roll of 36 will net about a minute of motion film.

  12. veato
    veato ·

    A camera that can be used to create mini movies? Maybe it will do 72 half frames on 35mm @10fps. That would be cool! 7 second mini movies :)

  13. sixty

    Awesome! :-D

  14. krisht

    I'm thinking Super8 too. It's the perfect Lomography look.

  15. istionojr

    recently I've read a lots of 'movie' word in here. it could be something with this. an analogue 35mm movie camera!

  16. o_shifrin

    A Video Camera!

  17. alex34
    alex34 ·

    I am guessing it will be a rejumble of existing components, in the same way that La Sardina is a relaunch of the Sprocket Rocket. A Super8 camera strikes me as a little too high tech from a production line that makes simple plastic cameras with only two shutter settings, so I'm guessing a stop-motion octomat type camera will be the final product.

  18. francesco1
    francesco1 ·

    i really hope it's a lomo movie camera with film for it!!!

  19. francesco1
    francesco1 ·

    i wish i could have been a tester!

  20. nazz_jb
    nazz_jb ·

    a motor drive for LC-A, LC-A+ & LC-W, so that we can take multiple frame at one click!

  21. j_robert
    j_robert ·

    i'm truly stumped.... if it is super 8, im pulling out the movie cam collection asap

  22. freyfrey
    freyfrey ·

    I love that brazil movie. amazing!

  23. freyfrey
    freyfrey ·

    maybe its an umbrella...

  24. eastmoe
    eastmoe ·

    lomography super8 film kamera..yeayy

  25. eastmoe
    eastmoe ·

    and use 35mm film...

  26. sthomas68
    sthomas68 ·

    Stop motion...

  27. palkina
    palkina ·

    I'm looking forward to this mystery product so much! even if it's an umbrella %) but i hope it's super8

  28. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    agree with @lomo-graf Kalimar 16 reissue!

  29. vgzalez
    vgzalez ·

    and what about all the "space" and the "casino" stuff around here the past weeks/days? Mmmm...

  30. sasha_sashin
    sasha_sashin ·

    new stereocamera or 3d camera for MiniMovie (;

  31. sasha_sashin
  32. coquelicot
    coquelicot ·

    Mmmm... I agree, a camera that can take photos one after the other very quickly, so that it's like a mini movie on the roll of (35mm) film!

  33. cfib
    cfib ·

    @lsi's writing something about "premiere" and "red carpet" there… so i think it's definitely going to be something movie-related... still hoping for super8 film but the motor drive/minimovie thing would be great too :)

  34. apissepet
    apissepet ·

    perhaps its 3d camera with free GIF maker software :)

  35. panchoballard
    panchoballard ·

    The videos are certainly making it look like a Lomography movie camera using 35mm. Bound to be a film-eater but that's fine, it should drive more sales of film which in turn might take the film manufacturers sit up and take notice as sales go through the roof (I hope). If it is a 35mm movie camera I look forward to using it when my band next make a video!

  36. mafiosa
    mafiosa ·

    I'm pretty sure my first guess of a stop-motion camera was correct....

  37. lukaaus
    lukaaus ·

    Using some Spinner action but by moving the film and not the camera. Could be cool. Almost like rotoscoping

  38. johan34370
    johan34370 ·

    seems like a really cool new thing!

  39. adi_totp
    adi_totp ·

    I agree with @coquelicot

  40. stouf
    stouf ·

    Reminds me of the minimovie contest... Any news ?

  41. clickiemcpete
    clickiemcpete ·

    I still want a 120 camera that you can wind and rewind like the Sprocket Rocket. Would be really cool if you could change the frame size like the LC-W and do a seamless half frame pano with it. C'mon guys, this is a no brainer! :p

  42. colethewalrus
    colethewalrus ·

    if its a video camera, i would expect it to be a Kinetiscope - type thing because they use 35mm film for short film clips. it would be a lot easier to get film since any 8mm film is really hard to find now

  43. johnnra
    johnnra ·

    If its a movie camera i will die of happiness! :)

  44. tonysykes

    making a video with a lomo video camera, something like a super 8 would be just amazing :D
