Lomography's Russian Scientist Experiments with the Lomo 135


Ladies and gentlemen, the quest continues! In hopes to overthrow the shiny-smooth pixel promises of the digital world, the Mad Russian Scientist invites you to join his cause in conducting some groundbreaking experimentation with authentic Russian analogue material …

LOMO 135
With the ongoing fight against digital and other complicated unmentionables , I admit – I tend to be quite absent-minded sometimes. Forgetfulness comes in handy with this small, smooth metal Russian baby. So you forgot to wind your camera – so what? You can shoot up to eight layers of pictures without having to advance your film! The zone focusing also makes it easy for all you lazybums who’d rather use those smart little icons than tinkering with tricky focus settings.

    I managed to get my hands on one of these, but I'm still not too sure on how to use it. Especially rewinding the film.

    Lovely gallery though!
