UFO Nemo! My Small Underwater Friend!


It is s pity that summer is so short , and I have to wait next summer, for the next underwater adventures!

This summer I manage to purchase this small babe: Ufo Nemo. It is a plastic film camera with a wide 28mm lens, which can also shoot under the water. It’s shutter is fixed at 1\125 and aperture at f/ 8, and works with 1 AA battery, which is needed to work the flash!

A flash turns on and off manually but not automatically, that makes me happy. Due to the plastic lens it gives a strong distortion and vignettes the edges of the shot. It also gives bright and contrasting colours.

For shooting under the water this small camera is inserted in the plastic housing. Here you have to be very attentive, and close the box densely, otherwise the water can leak in it. Generally speaking when I’ve got it, we run at the seaside to test it. In fact underwater pictures make an amazing impression – you can do everything what you want! From the first shot it was clear, that a view-finder is useless under water!

And the film you should choose should be with more high ISO. I like this baby very much, it took the worthy place in my collection of Lomo cams.It is s pity that summer is so short , and I have to wait next summer, for the next underwater adventures!
One Love
