La Sardina & Flash - Copernicus: I Wouldn't Want It Any Other Way

I’ve never thought of owning a La Sardina until I laid my eyes on the La Sardina Copernicus.

Although I had heard great reviews from friends and it always came in stylish, eye-catching designs, I had never really felt a wanting to own a La Sardina. I guess that was due in huge part to my partiality towards medium format cameras – case in point, the number of 120 films in my stock is more than double the number of 35mms there.

My feelings toward owning a La Sardina, however, changed when Lomography first launched the Maps Edition Cameras on their website. Now if you knew me at all, you’d know that I am, more than anything else, a traveler, which was why the Maps Edition caught my attention in the first place.

The moment I laid my eyes on that collection I knew wanted at least one of those cameras to add to my own collection. And when I took a closer look and saw the design on the La Sardina – Copernicus, I just had to have it for myself. I remember feeling exactly like how I felt when I first saw the Diana camera.

So I went on the online store and rewarded myself one. And it was one of the best moves I have done this year!

The La Sardina – Copernicus is just like any other La Sardina cameras – it has that same sleek design that fits easily and perfectly in a Lomographer’s hands, it has that same legendary powerful flash whose vintage look adds more to its appeal, and it has the same great functions such as the wide-angle lens and the double exposure feature.

What makes this La Sardina special, though, is that it’s basically the camera version of a night sky! It proves as an inspiration to me just like the actual night sky. I love the constellations in front and the diagram of the Milky Way in the back and I love how the soft grayish-blue color of its trimmings complements them perfectly. As a lover of the night sky and the stars, I wouldn’t want my La Sardina any other way.

I still have yet to master the La Sardina. I haven’t had much luck with it yet. But just like other film cameras, I know that that is how it is sometimes. My La Sardina – Copernicus and I have yet to get to know and get used to each other, that’s all.
