Have you ever tried using a lens meant for one camera on another? I combined two of the Lomography classics for this one!
I thought it would be cool to use the Diana Close-Up lens on the LC-A similar to the Holga tip I submitted, as with all cameras the focus range seems to be around 20cm thats 60cm or 3/4 times closer than you could get before.
With all the things you’d expect from your trusty LC-A such as great color saturation and vignetting, I just used some Kodak Gold for this gallery as its cheap and was a test roll and I feel the results came out great! Perhaps they could look even better if they were done with x-pro slide film! Unlike the Holga the depth of field seems to be a little greater making it a little easier for focusing etc. I just held the lens in front of the camera for taking pictures but if you cant be bothered with that you could use masking tape instead.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
It's time to get your jumpers out and enjoy the cold air! This month we've got a Southbank winter market with the Diana F+, a big launch party for the Daguerreotype Achromat Lens and our classic Winter Wonderland workshop with the LC-A+!
Cozy close ups or tin-type terrain? One shiny brass lens manages both. Natalie Hermann and Antonio Castello share their impressions of shooting with the Daguerreotype Art Lens and that having strong arms might come in handy when using it.
In this short article (dedicated to everyone who wears eyeglasses with plastic lenses), I suggest a simple trick to avoid the risk of scratching your eyeglass lenses when using a Lomo LC-A, LC-A+ or an LC-Wide camera.
We’re back on track with the Lomopedia series - the place to get a quick heads up on what’s what with cameras, lenses, and films you may come across with. For this comeback installment, we’re taking a look at the simple but dependable Industar 26M 50mm lens.
