Since I got the LC-Wide Instant Kit, I have been able to get a lot closer to the subject of my photographs than ever before. See below to find out more.
When I first got my Lomo LC-Wide, it was fair to say that I was happy with the results and I loved the wide angle photos it produced, a selection of which can be seen below.
Although I liked the pictures it produced, I was always a bit miffed as to why they didn’t look the same as they did when I had originally lined them up in my little viewfinder. I always seemed to be distinctly further away than I remembered when I had taken the photo and I wasn’t really sure how to fix this problem. When I went on a lomowalk in Manchester at the start of this year, someone informed me that the LC-Wide Instant Kit could be the answer to my prayers. Obviously the main purpose of the kit is to make it so that you can use the LC-Wide with the Instant Back but it comes also with a handy attachment for the viewfinder, which is a lot wider than the original one on the camera. I now use this on my LC-Wide all the time, so that I can get a better idea of what my photos are going to look like in the end.
You may think that it is quite pricey for what it is (it is almost £20), but I think that it makes my photos so much better and gives me a much more accurate representation of what will be in my photograph when I get it back from the lab. This has allowed me to line things up a lot better, and get a lot closer than ever before.
Fujifilm announced that it will no longer produce FP-100C. Instant photographers reacted with an online petition, which got more than 7,000 supporters in two days. The letter called on major film brands, including Lomography, to get the peel-apart film back in the market.

Since then, the world's most creative instant camera system has earned a permanent place on the camera collections (not to mention social media pages!) of many instant photography enthusiasts all over the world.

If you’ve been living on Neptune for the past week (wait, how the hell did you get there?), you might have missed the memo – The brand new Lomo’Instant Wide has landed! Pre-orders are flying in for the world’s most creative wide format instant camera and lens system and we’ve decided to launch a competition to spice up the fun even further.
In 2015 we had been fortunate enough to talk with photographers, with practices and insights unique from one another, from all over the globe. And not only were we able to see their works; we were also able to dig a little deeper and find out what makes each one of them tick. In this special recap, we present a handpicked selection of insightful quotes from some of our most memorable interviews this year.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
Named for the Italian city situated in the Lombardy region, overflowing with art and culture, say hello to the colorful aesthetics of the new Lomo'Instant Milano, the latest member of the Lomo'Instant family!
Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
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.
