One of the perks of working at Lomography is being able borrow and use all the cameras. Luckily, I was able to take a bunch of cameras to Cannes. As some of you may know, we joined forces with MUBI to bring some exciting analogue feel back to the big screen. So I took my cameras for a walk.
As you can imagine, crowds go crazy during the screenings of the official selection of movies during the Cannes Film Festival. All these shots were taken before the screening of “Michael,” the Austrian movie which is in the running for the big prize.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s.

It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
