Give Your Camera a New Summer Look and Have a Refreshing Summer Vacation!

2011-08-22 14

We have new looks at each season, how could our cameras stick to an old look? Let’s have a make-over and give your camera a new look immediately!

Why does it need a new look? Besides of wanting to look good, I found that as the number of Lomographers and users of the LOMO LC-A increases, it is harder to recognize and easier to mix up the cameras during events.

Try to imagine:
At a party, after you got a drink, there are a few more new “brothers” on the table … My “kid” can’t talk, so how do I recognize “him”? Therefore, having a new appearance not only helps you recognize your camera, it can also give your camera a unique style!

If you have time, pick the right fabric yourself
To save some time or trouble, there are fabric stickers for sale. They have different designs, patterns and textures for you to choose.

Just like sewing your clothes, we have to draw the “design layout”
Be careful and patient when you draw the layout, try to be accurate along the curve edges and details, otherwise it will not fit!

Transfer the design to back of the fabric sticker, trim along the layout and then stick it to the camera!
You don’t have to remove the original camera leather, you can restore or change it anytime you like, so convenient!

Add some small decorations to highlight your personal style!

If you have time, you can also design some new looks for other cameras! In this summer, give La Sardina a nautical style, a look in sailor style, and enjoy the summer vacation!

Don’t forget to share your tipsters on styling of your cameras!


Some tips

  • Stickers can last for about half a year before it needs to be replaced.
  • In a typical department store in Hong Kong, retail price of the fabric sticker is around HKD40/USD5.
    If you have a chance to be at a stationery store in Korea, it only cost half the price of that in Hong Kong.
  • Want to be unique and special, then you need to think more and spend a bit more time!
