La Sardina Review: 5 Rules for La Sardina Wonders


Are you ready to go out and get your best catch? Take this 35mm compact camera with you, and prepare for the La Sardina wonders!

I knew I would love La Sardina the moment Lomography introduced this camera to the world. I fell in love with it at first sight for its cute, sardine can-inspired design and of course, its mind-blowing 21mm wide angle lens. It even comes with Multiple Exposure(MX) and Bulb mode features. I like the Marathon design most. So I saved up my pocket money for months to have this camera.

It was an extreme satisfaction the moment I finally got my hands on a La Sardina. I cannot wait to shoot and experience the camera myself. So I loaded a roll of film and went out for a whole day of action.

Once I had my film developed, I almost cried in amazement with the results. It brings me much more than what I’ve expected. The whole roll of film is properly exposed and comes out as pictures (no blank pictures, YAY!). I got a total of 37 exposures from my first roll. Personally, I suggest you to use slide films and I think this camera is good for beginners. I even comes up with my own rules to make full use of La Sardina. Check them out:

Rule #1 : Don’t waste the Multiple Exposures (MX) feature. Go doubles!

Rule #2 : Get as close as you could to your subject!

(even though there’s some possibility you could get kicked by your subject LOL)

Rule #3 : Shoot self-portraits. Don’t be shy.

It’s about the 21mm wide-lens angle we’re talking about.

Rule #4 : Shoot whatever you passed by.

Rule #5 : Don’t follow the rules above. Have fun exploring your La Sardina in your own unique way!

It’s worth every penny, trust me. Have fun!
