Can’t get enough of the new Belair? Wanna know more inside info about this bellowed beauty? Then we suggest you read this recent Q&A we did over at The Phoblographer! Here’s a sneak peek:

Tell us about the lenses; optically, what about them makes them so sharp?
We take advantage of aspherical plastic optic to create 2 ultra-compact lenses: wide angle lens (90mm) and ultra wide angle lens (58mm) and pushed the possibility of the aspherical plastic optic to the limit.

Again, huge thanks to our friends over at The Phoblographer for this awesome Q&A regarding the Belair X 6-12!

We love medium-format photography. That’s why we’ve developed the Belair X 6-12; an entirely new 6×12 film camera that will bring an amazing level of lens quality to Lomographers. This stylish jet-setting camera combines all the stunning features of a panoramic, medium-format camera without the excessive size. You can also head on over to the FAQ section or the microsite for more information.

    The Art of Picture Taking: An Interview with Filmmaker Catherine Dauphin

    At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    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.
