The Canon ELPH LT is an Advanced Photography System camera. Yes it really is a film camera even though ti doesn’t look like it.
I have this great little camera I have used many years, It is a Canon Elph LT. A little point and shoot APS analog camera at its best. I have carried it around in my pocket so much all the corners are burnished down to black; like little photo corners. APS (Advanced Photographic Systems) is yet another brainy Idea from Kodak. Kodak paid a research company some very serious money to look into how and what is the size most people take negatives to print. They found out 97% of prints are made 4×6. So to make a very long and expensive story short; they concluded Jane and John Doe would spend more money to make more prints with smaller negatives. Wow! and the cameras are still very expensive. I guess it is like with drug companies “We must re coop the money we spent on research…”
I got mine at a yard sale for 50 cents some years ago. When I first started using The ELPH, people thought it was a digital camera. Sometimes after I took a shot, people would ask me to show them the photograph. There are lots of cool features built into this little pocket wonder. I like the little spring action door lens cover; it really keeps the pocket lent and coins from damaging the lens. It has a super sharp little 23mm Canon lens. The camera will shoot in three different frame feature on one roll: C, H, P, Prints come in 4×6″ (classical), 4×7″ (HDTV) and 4×12″ (panoramic). Classical means “crop the sides,” while panoramic means “crop the top and bottom.” The form-factor is recorded when you take the picture, but you can override your choice when reprinting. After the film has been shot and exposed it is all rolled back into the cassette. The shots from this camera are not for grand blow ups, but it is a pretty good little pocket point and shoot.
Our new LomoAmigo Acey Slade has a pretty cool job. He's a touring bassist for musicians like Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Even though music is his whole life, Acey still considers his photography to be much more important work. In this interview, Acey talks about his favorite cameras and a mysterious disposable camera lying around his band's tour bus—the developed pictures were nothing like his bandmates imagined!
Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.

A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect! Check out these mysterious afterimage-like light paintings from our online community.

Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
