For more than 20 years, I had been looking for a mechanical camera (WITHOUT batteries!). Having heard about the Fed 5 from “The Photographers’ Gallery”, in London, I went to England to buy it. I like the FED 5 so much because it’s a very strong camera: you can take photos on the beach, the mountain, in very cold places or in very hot ones. You just have to make sure there’s film in it. I like to listen to “her” mechanical song when she’s shooting. And, of course, there’s the 80´s design – no plastic, just metal with metal. So what are the Fed 5’s best features? The range of speeds; you can do everything with all the speeds, but I like the “B”. The metering system is great. Whether the aperture is small or large, the Fed 5 achieves amazing depth of focus. You can even approximate the distance by looking at its scale (don’t think, just shoot!!)
Selenium light meter.
Remarkable contrast, resolution and sharpness due to multi-elemented ‘Industrar 61’ lens
Join us on Thursday, February 4 for the opening night of the Jupiter Landing Exhibition where we will showcase some of the finest photographers from around the world who tested The New Jupiter 3+ Lens.
The Lomography Hong Kong Team spent a cozy evening at the opening party for an antique shop and captured moments from the event with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens. The Minitar-1 Lens brought life to every image, from quick behind-the-scenes snaps and portraits, to artsy and creative shots of the antiques.
Maxime Fardeau, or Max as he is fondly called, loves film. He has been shooting analogue for about four years and owns a number of 35mm film and instant cameras, such as the Leica M6 and SLR-670 Polaroid. He has taken photos using the Lomo'Instant and the Minitar-1 Art Lens and this time around, he provides a glimpse of the images she produced with the Jupiter 3+ Art Lens.
The LC-Wide is definitely one of Lomography's must-have cameras. Its Minigon 1 Ultra-Wide-Angle lens adds a different flavor to your shots, on top of the stunning vignettes, intense colors and breathtaking saturation and contrast LC-A cameras are known for. The Lomography Team is no stranger to the LC-Wide's creative potential, and has proven it capable of the most captivating images. First on the list is danika, from the Lomography Headquarters in Vienna.
