Yes I know everyone’s already done an LC-A+ review ans it’s so overdone, but it’s such a great camera!
My first Lomography camera was a Fisheye no.2. This opened me the the world of Lomography. I decided to save up my money for a LOMO LC-A+. I bought it in May and my life hasn’t been the same ever since. This camera really does change lives. It’s so nice and small you can bring it everywhere (like school!). The light meter is fantastic. It lets me use low grain film (iso 100) in slightly darker places than normal, if my hand is steady enough. I love how you really don’t know what you’re going to get. The vignetting really does wonders, especially when cross processing!
I’ve used an old LC-A before and I have to say the LC-A+ is better. The light meter and cable release are worth it, so is the warranty. Without that warranty, I would probably not have a camera anymore, since i dropped it in the summer and the take-up spool broke. LSI New York was so nice and just gave me a new one :D. In conclusion, the LC-A+ is a fantastic camera, nothing I have ever used before. I’ve taken about 30-40 rolls with this since i got it, not every picture great, but the ones that came out are great.
The Kodak Autographic is the first really old camera I bought. I didn’t really know how it worked and had no idea that this nearly century-old camera would kick off a passion for collecting, fixing, and shooting with vintage cameras.

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.

Our beloved Lomo LC-A camera turns 32 this year! Through the years, we've seen this classic compact camera switch its color palettes and designs. But beyond the change in its looks is a story or milestone to raise our glasses to.
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.
Lomography NYC chats with indie musician Zuli and his tour photographer Dave about experiences on the road, like how a broken down van was not so great in the moment but ended up making for a really great photo, and shooting with their new favorite camera, the Sprocket Rocket!
"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.
