3D printed camera gear is coming along slowly but steady. The newest innovation that’s been making the rounds are 3D printed lens hoods!
Unless you’re J.J. Abrams, too much lens flare is something you’d like to avoid. Ward off those wayward streaks of light to make sure that you get the photo as you intended. The best way to do this with cameras is to have a lens hood, which is usually packaged together with your lenses. In the event that it doesn’t come with one or you lost it, don’t worry as you can use a 3D printer to make your own!
What’s great about 3D printed lens hoods is that there are plenty of colors and designs to choose from. Of course you’d ideally want a flat black one for your photos, but we’ve never been really a fan of rules now, are we?

We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
This is the story of a negative and the memory of loved ones that are gone, but are still present on an old analogue celluloid film. It's the emotional power of analogue photography that lasts forever.

"Love your camera" is Marika's first rule when it comes to shooting film. Her passion for collecting gear stemmed from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of testing a variety of film cameras for her friend's shop. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from Prague, Czech Republic, analogvision!
Graphic design student and amateur photographer Oulpiana Tsiatsiou is our newest Lomo Amigo. She was looking for a camera that would give a vintage look in her pictures and found it in the Lomo'Instant Wide!
I like to make and use masks with my Lomo'Instant camera, but sometimes they are too dominant. In coming up with more subtle masks, I found several that produced an interesting, distressed look, especially when paired with the camera flash and color gel strips. They're especially good for creating Halloween-themed photos.
