First Impression, Love, and Oktomat


First time I met Oktomat was in 2008,on April. My friend lend me her Oktomat then I start to shoot with her Oktomat. IT WAS REALLY FUN!! Then I went so crazy with the Oktomat and finishing 4 rolls of film in one day! All my Lomo friends says “come on Adi,you must buy an Oktomat!”

After couple of months, I didn’t buy Oktomat because I forgot to save up my money. I was thinking to myself “When can I buy my own Oktomat?”

Suddenly I remember I got a SMS from my friend saying “Adi, you won Lomohomes Of The Day…” I was so so so surprised and also very excited, I mean after these months thinking of buying an Oktomat finally I have a chance to own an Oktomat. So after receiving 50 lovely piggies from LSI (THANKS A BUNCH,LSI) I ordered Oktomat and couples of Agfa Films. But Oktomat was the thing that I waited so much. When DHL arrived at my house I grabbed the package and bring out the Oktomat. My own oktomat was very really special for me. It make me me,the whole 8 frames thing make me do some crazy pose and for sure I shoot many crazy lomographic using this Little Red Camera. I enjoy using this camera and my main happiness about this Oktomat is making mini movies using Oktokino. Such a major happiness to see mini movies created and I love the whole process in Oktokino. It make me laugh so hard to see crazy mini movies. :)

Thanks LSI for giving me many piggies so I can buy this Oktomat,oh yeah my Oktomat named Laska it means warm,cares in Russian. I got that name from my dear Lomo Friend in Moscow, (thanks Dasha!) check out her lomohomes,I love her minimovies. Thank you very much :)
