LomoKino: Cinema Within Everybody’s Reach

2013-05-10 1

A camera that can register 144 pictures on a normal 135mm roll. It registers every scene or action and it can reproduce every kind of motion. It is the first movie camera made by Lomography, 100% analog, as we like it!

LomoKino is surprising, small, compact and last but not least, very simple to use.


  • You can use any 35mm film (negative, positive, xpro, B&W &RedScale)
  • Easy focusing between 1,95 feet (0,6m) and infinite (it has even a close up button to record the movie between (1,95 feet – 3,2 feet / 0,6m – 1m)
  • You can set the aperture between ( f/5,6 – f/8 & f/11)
  • You can shoot from 3 to 5 frame (you only need to rotate the handle)

I actually like so much filming with my LomoKino, just loading the film depending on the scene I want to record. Then closing the cover and starting to give life to our movie.

The part which is a little more complicated is the one that comes after we have the developed roll on our hand; you only need to remember a few rules: firstly, NEVER let your lab cut the roll, because, on a normal 36 exposure roll, we got about 144 frames. Digitalize the whole negative and with a standard photo editing application cut all the frames. Lastly, with a video editing software merge all your frames together. (It is easier done than said)
