  • Is That A Lomolito In Your pocket, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

    Is That A Lomolito In Your pocket, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

    Rule #1: Take your camera everywhere. With Lomolitos, you've run out of excuses. I found a handful of Lomolitos on sale at an Urban Outfitters store last winter, so I picked up a few: red, yellow, and green. My lovely wife raised her eyebrows when she saw them, but when it comes to cameras, she doesn't try to reason with me anymore... There are two things about these little gems that make them so totally awesome.

    Horizon Perfekt - Perfect Choice

    So what's all the fuss about you ask? This little beauty (yes there's no other way to describe this camera) is something to cry about, or at least shout about! Just walking down the street with one is enough for you to get celebrity status (not that's what we're after).

    Holga 120 CFN - The Ultimate Experiment

    The Holga 120 CFN camera is – as its name suggests – a medium format camera which uses 120 film. It has a built in colour flash which means that you can take pictures in the colours yellow, blue and red but also natural coloured ones. Because of the flash you need two AA batteries. The first Holga camera was built in 1982 in China.

    Cosina AF 35: The "Autofocus Experience"

    One month ago I was surfing on the internet looking for new cameras and searching information about camera history, and my eyes were caught by a really nice camera: the Cosina AF-35 "Visitronic". The brand Cosina made me immediately think to the history of LCA (as the Cosina CX2 inspirated the conception of the legendary Lomo Compact Automat...) and attracted me of course. But I was also very interested in the "autofocus" system from a late 70's (apparently 1977-78) camera called "Visitronic".

    LC-A PLUS - I like you!

    six pluses and one minus = five stars. LCA plus has, as her name suggests, some plus features. But let’s start with the basics: It is the same light weighing camera (even more light), same sizes. The distance goes from 0,8 meters up to infinity. The lens is still minitar 32mm, but made in china (you can see it is a bit red when the russian lens is bluish). The aperture is fix at 2,8. You have a hotshoe.

    The Agfa Clack was introduced in 1954 and built until 1965 by Agfa in Germany. The camera uses 120mm medium format film and creates pictures that are 6 to 9cm wide (so not the usual square pictures but landscape!). You get 8 pictures on one roll of medium format film, and those negs are HUGE!

    Welta Belmira

    My quest for finding the best and most beautiful cameras from the former east german republic, let me discover a very special and unusual camera named "belmira" produced by the Welta. The cameras is known also under the name of "Belca Belmira". In fact the camera was first produced by the" VEB Belca Werk" from 1953 to 1958 and then, after the integration in a new industrial structure, was continued by the "Welta Kamera-Werk Freital". Both entreprises came from Dresden, and were founded before the 1st world war and were re-organized after the 2nd war by the new DDR socialist régime. Welta itself was integrated in the VEB Pentacon after 1964...

  • Colorsplash – The Party Camera Of Choice

    Colorsplash – The Party Camera Of Choice

    Nothing captures the woozy, manic memories of a great party like the Lomo Colorsplash. While others wash out the room with a blinding harsh white flash, you paint the moment in yellow streaks, glowing blue orbs and bright red faces. The Colorsplash has a thousand uses, but a party is where it truly comes into it’s own. Lightweight but strong, it’s something that can be held comfortably in one hand (preferably the one not holding a beer) as you wait for an opportunity to momentarily blind a fellow partygoer!

  • Lomo LC-A - Loveliest Camera Alive

    Lomo LC-A - Loveliest Camera Alive

    The classic lomo camera and the reason why we all are here! The Lomo Compact Automat is my all day camera. It has a reason why this camera started a new way of photography. One of the reasons is Minitar- lens, a 32mm russian lens that produces a vignette (the corners are getting darker, so you have a focus on the middle of the picture) and that lets colours explode. The original LCA has a automatic exposure (app 2.8) with five different asa- settings (25 to 400) so you can shoot with her in ANY light- conditions. If you want, you can add a hotshoe- flash (like colorsplash flash with its four changeable colour- filters). The original LCA has different apperatures (A = automatic (2,8), 2,8 – 16) with fix exposure times (good if you want to use a flash for portraits, so use 16- setting and you can get close without overexposing the face).

    Lomography Oktomat: 8 Choice Cuts

    I'm really into experimental films and directors, so I've always wanted something that I could create my own films with;plus I kind of fancy myself a film director. After having bought my Holga and several other cameras that I learned some technique on, I had heard people throughout the Lomography community talking about the 8 lens wondercam, Oktomat. I had checked out the Oktokino and saw what the Oktomat could do, and I had to get one.
