    how are we supposed to know when the 24 hours end? i have no ideia about the exact time that this was posted.
    you should do like in the " 24 Hours B&W Medium Format Rumble" and say something like: Wednesday 20th August 18.00 CET. that's much more accurate, don't you think?

  30. tomk32
    tomk32 ·

    @paper_doll: right you are, but the first comment was eight hours ago.

  31. anglemort
    anglemort ·

    oh yes, agree with paper doll and an idea for the beta : could you introduce a CET clock somewhere in lomo, for to know end of special deal, rumble etc ?

  32. xbalboax
    xbalboax ·

    these boots are made for walking

  33. paper_doll
    paper_doll ·

    anglemort, that sounds like a good ideia!

  34. anarchy
    anarchy ·

    Isn't it always 18:00 CET (end of the rumble)? In that case it's easy to know because of the date stamp in the header, just count 1 day forward and then 18:00 CET, but sure, a nice little clock or even a realtime countdown would of course make things a lot easier for the ones that are several hours off from CET...

    oh my, it's working only in Safari.

  37. plaidleaf

    i know adding a clock would make it much easier for me... then i wouldn't have to reference my google clock widget every time i look at the LSI site. the clock could even use the little lomo boy face at the center... :)

    @mattcharnock they look a bit too polka. my favourites is a pair of light, brown leather shoes which I bought for 8€ a few years ago. I just give the into repair over and over again.

    @agrimony, @poshone: If you'd read the small text below then you'd know that it can take some time until your uploads show up. Soon they will show up in your lomohome too.

    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.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
