What do you most love about the La Sardina? La Sardina is easy to use. You insert a film and shoot, shoot, shoot. Still it allows you to try different things like multiple exposures or long time exposures (B-setteting). La Sardina also stands so well for square and portrait format pictures, so you do not really need a tripod – a big plus!
How would you describe La Sardina in five words?
Can, light, wide, silent, simple
The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest Lomographic encounter that you have ever had?
