Much missed since the relaunch earlier this year we are happy to bring back the LomoKino Movie Section. Lights, Camera, Action!
New Lomokino Movie Section
We completely reworked the Movie section and you can now find them sorted by trending, recent and popular on this Overview Page. As soon as you upload a video, your personal movie archive will be accessible on your Lomohome under ‘My Movies’. More on how to upload and create new movies in the next section.
How to upload your Lomokino Movies
You can easily share your own LomoKino movies in this section too – All you have to do is upload your LomoKino movies to Vimeo, connect your Lomography account with your Vimeo account and follow the steps below and you’ll be sharing your LomoKino shorts in no time!
Connect your Lomography and Vimeo accounts. To do this, you have to be logged in on Lomography, head to your Account Settings page and follow the button that redirects you to Vimeo. There you need to be logged in as well (or login) and authorize the connection. (The reason for this: we want to make sure that you are an authorized user on Lomography and Vimeo – this way nobody can import anyone else’s videos on the Lomography site.)
Head to the Movies tab in your Dashboard. Click on ‘Create New Movie’ and you’ll be presented a list of all your Vimeo Videos – from those you can select the ones you want to show on Lomography. It’s as simple as that!
We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
The 'ber" months are back and we begin with September. The heat is gone and the direction of the wind has changed. But that shouldn't stop you to enjoy living. For this week's Monday Moodboard, we bring you freedom.
More and more filmmakers are going back to shooting with an analogue camera. One of them is Christopher Patrick Goode who recently submitted a silent film shot entirely with our very own LomoKino to a competition. Watch his engaging short movie that explores the psychological effects of war.
Saint Etienne are stalwarts of the indie-pop world and have been releasing records since the 90s. This month they release their new album called Home Counties. We are offering you the chance to win a signed copy of this album and a Lomo'Instant Marrakesh camera to inspire you to shoot your hometown.
Since the dawn of time, we humans have been referring to the sky and the celestial bodies for guidance. The stars have been with us all along, and some parts of the world are blessed with dancing lights. Photographer Mika Suutari has dedicated her art and passion to the night.
Community member and analogue lover Simeon Smith recently made a short movie using a Lomokino, Actionsampler and a Spinner. He worked with folk singer Jess Hall to create a beautiful and haunting soundtrack. We talked to Simeon about this project why he chose to use analogue cameras.
Celebrating 30 years since the groundbreaking Powell Peralta video, The Search For Animal Chin, the original Bones Brigade recently reunited in Southern California to rebuild and redux the historic quad-inverts photo shot by J. Grant Brittain back in 1986. You could own his camera!
Last year Lomography UK sent out some Lomo’instant Wide cameras to be tested out by our most prolific community members and instant photography fanatics. We take a look back at the highlights and remind ourselves of how versatile this instant beauty is!
We are officially half way through the year and summer is in full swing! This is the perfect time to stock up on film, get out your cameras or book yourself onto one of our fab workshops. This month you can choose from an LC-A+ walk or two LomoChrome Purple workshops!
