Lomo LC-Wide


When I first read about the Lomo LC-Wide, I instantly knew I wanted it. I had to get it, somehow. Thankfully, my parents and boyfriend joined their forces and gave it to me as a birthday and graduation gift. I couldn’t wait to start using it and take it with me everywhere I go.

For the first roll, I loaded my LC-Wide with Lomography Color Slide 200, to experiment with an extra element of surprise. I made sure to try different settings, made a few multi-exposures, and long exposure ending in a flash (second-curtain-flash) and of course the amazing Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. And man, it sure is wide! It takes me by surprise every time I look through the viewfinder. And after having my film developed, I found out the lens is even wider than the viewfinder makes you think. You can capture e-ve-ry-thing with this gorgeous little thing.

I still need to get used to getting close, closer and closest to my objects, because even though I took Lomography’s advice with me while shooting, most things I shot still seem far away, because of the wide angle lens. I shot my first roll full frame, but I can’t wait to try shooting half frame or square frame.

So even though the camera is kind of expensive, I love it. You might think, “easy for you to say, having received it”, but I would have bought it myself otherwise. The possibilities of this camera are amazing, and I love the pictures it takes, how sharp and surprising they are. I can’t wait to experiment even more with my Lomo LC-Wide.

The Lomo LC-Wide boasts the newly-developed 17mm Minigon Ultra-Wide Angle lens. This 35mm camera wonder is the perfect companion for your photo expeditions. It produces eye-catching splashes of color with astonishing saturation and contrasts with the added versatility of 3 different formats.
