Reviews of the Week

2012-06-25 2

Were you looking forward to the previous week’s featured reviews? The wait is now over, so read on to find out which camera, film, and accessory reviews made it to last week’s notable reviews!


We saw several noteworthy reviews last week, but we bet many will agree that the 2-part review on the wide-angle Vivitar family by lomographer gvelasco was rather interesting. We’ve seen a lot of reviews on various Vivitar cameras in the past, but this is perhaps the most in-depth of all the comparisons between all the wide-angled members of the family.

In Part 1, our featured reviewer introduces us to the four cameras—Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim, Vivitar IC 100, Vivitar CV35, and Vivitar PN2011—and tells us about their features. In Part 2, he takes them cameras for a test and shows us the results, leaving us to decide which of them takes the best photos.

Photos taken using each camera featured in our lomographer’s two-part review.

So, go ahead and check out both parts if you want to know more about the wide-angled Vivitars!


In our next featured review, lomographer sudhashunmu shared with us some picturesque snaps taken using an expired slide film: Fuji Provia 100F, loaded in the LC-A+. But, instead of vibrant blues and greens, we see a rather muted, but nevertheless beautiful blue drenching her photos of Venice. It was actually a gamble that our lomographer shot this expired film during an overcast day, since we all know that ISO 100 films are best shot during sunny days. Take a look at some of the best snaps from the set in her review:

Last but not least, our featured accessory review from last week tells about the LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens, which our featured lomographer-reviewer, dearjme, regarded as a cheaper alternative to buying a new LC-Wide (well, at least for those who own an LC-A+). As wider is sometimes better, the LC-Wide no doubt garnered many lovers and followers, but dearjme finds that the LC-A+ Wide Angle Lens is likewise able to take some interestingly wide photos:
