La Sardina: The Tireless Traveler!


The La Sardina is a great travel companion that will never betray you! Let me share with you the photos from my adventures with this trusty camera.

La Sardina, the newborn of Lomography, is an excellent point and shoot camera that incorporates in a body made ​​from a tin of sardines, the 10 Rules of Lomography. Its compact size, combined with its wide-angle lens, it is the ideal travel companion suitable for (almost) all the conditions.

I was about to leave for Prague last summer, two days before departure when I came across a dilemma: which camera to take? After carefully examining all the Lomo cameras at my disposal, I decided to give a chance to this small, green plastic girlfriend.

It was the right choice. Its size allowed me to put it inside pants pockets and does not take extra space so I had no bags, purses, etc..

I tried several rolls but I think Lomography CN ISO 400 was just the best choice because of the high sensibility in all lights conditions.

Even with Lomography Redscale XR 50-200, the La Sardina does very well. These are some pictures taken in the afternoon.
