The Camera Review of the Week shows us how vintage cars and analog cameras go hand in hand and create perfect harmony together!
Although it may share some similarities with the Lomo LC-A, the Olympus XA2 is a force to be reckoned with by itself. It has the renowned Zuiko lens, a distinctive clamshell body and a feather-touch electromagnetic shutter release. It’s even smaller than the LC-A and has the cutest flash attachment at the side which no other compact has!
eastmoe took the XA2 for a trip and shot funky Volkswagens with it in his review. With an eclectic mix of crisp color, sharp contrast and the quirky vignettes we’ve come to love, he earns himself the title of Camera Review of the Week! Congratulations!

We gave our Simple Use Film Camera to the photographer Nicolas Kuttler: a perfect symbiosis of his spontaneous photography, influenced by the 90's and these 35mm pre-loaded analogue cameras. Nicolas tells us about his photographic practice and the importance of analogue in his work.
We've been fans of Brian Bruno, or @brunoroids work ever since he showed us some fantastic rolls of our favorite films like the LomoChrome Purple and Lomo F2. He uses all kinds of analog gear, and wanted to take the Neptune Convertible Art Lens System for a spin. Check it out!
