Here’s a quick list of 9 pieces of advice that I can give you when using the Pop9! Read on!
Bring an extra battery! You never know when your flash might run out of juice.
Bring it to parties! The Pop9 is an easy, point-and-shoot, focus-free solution to your party picture needs.
Be patient with the flash! It won’t work right unless the light is all the way on.
ISO 400 – 800 is great for flashing! I would recommend either ISO for flash photography with with the Pop9, since you can’t get to close.
ISO 100 – 200 for outside! At 1/100th of a second and f/8, ISO 100 or 200 should serve you well outdoors.
Fill the frame! Because it has so many lenses, you’ll notice very quickly you might need to back up to fit everything in. Think of how the final product will look with all 9 perspectives together.
Turn it! Don’t forget, you can always take pictures vertically.
All together now! The Pop9 isn’t like the other multilens cameras, all of the shutters fire at once, so you’re capturing one moment from 9 perspectives at the same time. Keep that in mind when shooting.
Have fun with it! Put color gels on the flash, capture interesting patterns, hack away at it and modify it to double expose or take out the masks, just get creative! The only limit on your creativity is you.
The Pop 9 takes nine identical images on one print. Transform your environment into explosions of pattern-repeating pop-art with the Pop 9. See it with the rest of our Multilens cameras here!
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.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
Because here’s the thing about film photography that I doubt a digital camera can give you: Permanence, photographs that truly and literally stay with you, not just in a physical form but also in your head and in your heart.

What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
With exceptional craftsmanship and features, the New Russar+ is indeed a fine piece of photographic gear. It's then only but right to photograph only the best images with this lens. That being said, here are a few tips to help you not only find the appropriate subjects, but also properly frame and capture them.

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!
On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
The beauty of instant cameras is that they let your spontaneous side truly run wild, and the Lomo'Instant Wide gives you just the opportunity to experiment with all sorts of shooting methods on the fly!
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
