Lomography LC-Wide: The First Trip to Macau Without a DSLR

2014-04-06 1

The Lomography LC-Wide is a great travel companion if you want something light and fits easily in your pocket.

Previously I liked to travel with a DSLR, but during this trip to Macau I decided to pack light. I traveled solely with the *LC-Wide*, which is so much lighter than a DSLR, and I fell in love with it. However, the limited amount of exposures forced me to be extra cautious of image composition.

For me price has always been a concern. If I wanted a full-frame DSLR with a wide-angle lens, they come with a hefty price tag. But with a film camera it’s a totally different story. With LC-Wide, I am able to achieve the effect I want, all with an affordable price.

The LC-Wide’s angle lens was so broad that I had things I didn’t expect getting inside the frame, such as my finger. But generally I had fun shooting with it. It is a great companion camera if you ever decide to travel light.

All these images were scanned using the *Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner*. Please excuse the image quality; this has been my first time and I am still getting the hang of things.
