Vivitar IC100: A Poor Guy's LCA+


This is one of my favorite film cameras. Come on and find out why Philippine Lomographers love this camera so much!


The Vivitar IC100 Costs only 50 Pesos (around a Dollar and a Quarter), this plastic camera amazes almost everyone from forum, including me. After a member found this camera at Hidalgo, Quiapo in Manila, tested some rolls and posted the results, everyone wanted to have one (I bought two :p)

It produces vignettes like that of an LCA, and unpredictable contrasts and saturation. It also gives magnificent lens flares, which by the way I love!

I call this “My Poor Man’s LCA,” though it doesn’t have controls for aperture and focus. It has a fixed aperture opening and shutter speed, both of which I dont know. It doesn’t come with a manual, the face of IC100 just says that it is “Focus free.”

I use this when I want something lighter and more handy than my LCA+.

But there are times when sticky shutter happens, that I do not really mind.

The best thing I like about Vivitar IC100?? It has a Hotshoe for flash, so indoor photography is possible.

Here are the shots that i have taken using Vivitar IC100

The LomoChrome Metropolis is the first truly new color negative film to be released in years. Following the success and now legendary status of the LomoChrome Purple and LomoChrome Turquoise, this new emulsion will be available in 35 mm, 110, 120, and 16 mm. Drenching your photos in muted colors, poppy contrast, and desaturated tones, this film is dark, grungy, quite unlike anything you've seen before. Back us on Kickstarter and help us usher in a new era in film photography!
