Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
We are officially half way through the year and summer is in full swing! This is the perfect time to stock up on film, get out your cameras or book yourself onto one of our fab workshops. This month you can choose from an LC-A+ walk or two LomoChrome Purple workshops!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
The girl gangs of Japan has been romanticized in the media -- from dramas to anime. But they did exist for a while, and the 'sukeban' was all about rebellious aesthetics against the immaculate image of the Japanese school girl.
