Rule #1: Take your camera everywhere.
With Lomolitos, you’ve run out of excuses.
I found a handful of Lomolitos on sale at an Urban Outfitters store last winter, so I picked up a few: red, yellow, and green. My lovely wife raised her eyebrows when she saw them, but when it comes to cameras, she doesn’t try to reason with me anymore…
There are two things about these little gems that make them so totally awesome.
1: That little piece of coloured filter that rests over the flash.
Every lomographer knows about the magic of a colourful flash (if you don’t, get on it!) And you can’t beat a tiny little plastic camera that fits in any pocket you’ve got.
If you want to do doubles, you might want to put a little bit of tape (I use electrical tape) on the leader to attach it to the take up spool; that way you won’t wind it in to the roll prematurely.
Here’s my list of things that I DON’T worry about with my Lomolito:
1. spilling beer on it.
2. not being able to fit it in my pocket.
3. one of the kids dropping it.
4. someone stealing it.
5. spilling beer on it.
If you really want to take your camera EVERYWHERE, but you don’t want to drop your LCA on the rollercoaster, or have your Lubitel stolen at the nightclub; you need a trusty Lomolito. Come on! Stick one in your pocket and I’ll know you’re happy to see me…
