This is a short, simple and indispensable Tipster for new La Sardina owners. Specifically, those who are frustrated by the fact that their new 35mm darling refuses to shoot or synch with the flash. The probable cause? You haven’t pulled out the lens and twisted it until you see ‘Only Shoot If You Read Me’ text on the lens. And remember to twist the lens until you hear that magical ‘click’ sound – when you hear the click, you can be confident that your flash will fire when you shoot! Read on for a step-by-step guide to getting your La Sardina ready for its first photo outing…
Make sure that the collapsible lens is pulled out so you can read the ‘Only Shoot If You Read Me’ text on the lens. If the lens is not pulled out, your shutter will be locked.
Lock the lens well in its Ready-To-Shoot position – To do this, after you’ve pulled the lens out, twist it around until it clicks – When you hear the ‘click’, your attached flash should synch with the camera.
For testing without film and back-cover, please be so kind to turn the advancing gear till it is locked in its position (to the right)
To keep the Shutter open for a longer period you can activate the “B” Mode (in front of the View Finder)

I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!
"Photography is a reflection of heart." These are the words of Martin Liu, a documentary, wedding and portrait photographer from Hong Kong.

Named for the Italian city situated in the Lombardy region, overflowing with art and culture, say hello to the colorful aesthetics of the new Lomo'Instant Milano, the latest member of the Lomo'Instant family!
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
