Hello Amp, welcome to the magazine! Is this your first time using 110 format camera?

I remember that I used it once when I was a kid—probably at least 20 years ago. At that time, I was using it to take photos of school sports day but I don't know where all the pictures have gone.

How was your experience using the Lomomatic 110 camera for the first time? What do you like most about this camera?

The first thing is the camera design, it's very eye-catching. I think the design is beautiful and looks futuristic. Next, the camera functions are fully provided. It's more than a normal compact camera, including unlimited multiple exposures, bulb mode, removable flash, colored gels filters and the glass lens. I like everything!

How do you think taking photos with a 110 camera is different from other formats?

First of all, it is easy to load film. It's easy to press the shutter. Otherwise, I don't think it's much different.

What was your concept for these photos?

When Lomography provided the camera and recommended the functions to me, I wanted to try and capture everything with every function. So I took photos in many places, such as Pak Khlong Talat, Charoen Krung, Muangthong Thani, and in front of my house at night. I tried many styles, including street shots, minimal, double exposures, and color flash.

Do you have any tips for using the multiple exposure function?

This camera makes it very easy to take multiple exposures. Once you press shutter for the first time, just slide the MX button before winding the film. Now you can take multiple exposure photos and slide this button to continuously take multiple photos. There are no limits.

Which picture do you like most and why?

My favorite picture is probably the one where I put a horse's head on my dog. It's simple, straightforward, but funny. As soon as I put it on, she just sat there and didn't move at all! But I was a little sad because I forgot to bring the horse's head back to my house. Now I don't have it to play with, and I bought it from Japan.

Do you have any advice for people who want to try using a 110 camera for the first time?

It's easy to load film. It's another format that you should try. It's easy to use, fun, and cute. It's cool to take anywhere and can be a chic prop.

What are your hopes for the future of the 110 format?

I want more cameras. I think that if more cameras were launched, it would attract more people to use them. And I'd like to go on a photo walk. It should be fun.
