Good Russian cameras are unique characters with their specific features,
mannerisms and little quirks. But let’s be honest, with so many classic Russian cameras around these days, it’s sometimes not so easy to pick out what makes each one special. So who better than their devoted owners to tell us a little something about what makes these vintage analogue heroes a shot above the rest? The reviews and galleries you will read today come from the mouths and dusty albums of your fellow Lomographers.

Antique Shop Grand Opening

To celebrate the grand opening of the
Antiques Shop we are giving away a 5 pack of deadstock Konica Chrome Centuria 200 film with every purchase of one of our featured Russian cameras.

When cross – processed this amazing slide film boasts intense saturation
and contrast with a very subtle blueish colour shift. Add to that a speedy 200 ISO and thatsome expired film craziness,
and you defintitely have a winner.

Film Offer: Fuji Velvia 35mm slide expired

Is there something more madcap than expired Fuji Velvia?
It seems unlikely due the Velvia’s wildly saturated escapades when cross – processed.

So, given that this slide is a little past its use-by date – who knows what kind of mischief you can expect!

  • 20 EUR/USD – 5pack
  • 35 EUR/USD – 10pack

    Remarkable Film Photographs Captured by the Homeless Featured on Cafe Art 2016 My London Calendar

    Armed with disposable cameras, a number of people affected by homelessness in London trooped out in the streets and captured life from their individual perspectives. That was in July; now, 13 photographs have been selected via public vote and will be featured on the upcoming calendar by Cafe Art, an initiative that "[showcases] artwork created by people affected by homelessness or are socially vulnerable."

    Cinematographer Michal Dabal on the Petzval Lens

    Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    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.
