How To: Rewind and Unload the Film From Your LomoKino


The LomoKino makes all the wonderful possibilities of 35mm film photography available to the world of movie making. Cross-processed comedy? Redscale romance? Black & White drama? Sure you can! Whether you choose to create experimental stop motion or fantastic montage movies, it’s possible with a LomoKino. We have prepared a step-by-step guide to get you started.

Rewinding and Unloading the Film

Once a red flag pops up behind the hot-shoe and the rewinding knob stops turning, it means you have reached the end of your LomoKino film. Time to rewind!

  1. To rewind the film roll, just flip the rewinding lever up and turn it anti-clockwise. When you can no longer feel any friction, you’ll know that the film is fully rewound.
  2. Open the LomoKino cover by pressing both of the door lock buttons (on either side of the camera) at the same time.
  3. Pull up the rewinding lever a bit and take out your LomoKino film from the film chamber.

Bringing analogue back to the movies with a bang in the 21st century, the LomoKino is a Lomography movie camera that shoots spectacular, creative movies on all kinds of 35mm film. Head to the Microsite, watch some Movies and begin your analogue movie-making journey today!
