The Russian Scientist is Back with a Good Deal!


Our Russian Scientist is up to his (all) good experiments once again! This time, he takes on a showdown with the Kiev 4 and Smena 8M! Buy a Russian Deadstock Camera today, and get a 3-pack of Lomography CN 400 for FREE!

Knowing that analogue will save us all from pixelated misfortune, some analogue-crazed fools tried to outsmart me! I was captured and tortured to the brink! They were after the Russian deadstocks in my possession, the Kiev 4 and the Smena 8M! But what is the use of seizing these vintage gems without my brilliant input, research and film stash? Shoving a bunch of films into their greedy faces, I said, “Life is too short for fussing and fighting, my friend. We can work it out.” A deal was sealed – a FREE 3-pack of Lomography Colour Negative when bought along with any Russian deadstock camera on the Lomography online shop. I’m free again and I fully expect a Nobel prize nomination…

The Kiev 4 x Smena 8M Showdown

16.02.10 – 5:30am

Ah, the Kiev 4. One of those digital gangsters was hell-bent on snagging this one. Can’t blame him. Quiet shutter, conveniently combined rangefinder & viewfinder makes it a focus and framing beast! I have the scars to prove the Kiev 4’s razor-sharp shots.

Smena 8M

18.02.10 – 3.17am

They slapped me awake yet again, and brought a compact object into the light. It was the Smena 8M. I told them only what they needed to know: the Smena 8M feels lightweight, and portable and can shoot incredible images. And by using its icons one can accurately calculate daytime exposures.
