    Ilford XP2 (35mm, 400 iso) user-review

    Some people say B&W is not Lomography. There may be nice images done on Holga but that's all about it. True lomostyle is in colors. In bright colors. And cross process is a king there. Well, I wouldn't be so narrow-minded...

    Lomography Lomolitos - Staff Review

    Compact-sized and colorful, the Lomolitos single-use cameras preloaded with 24 exposures of color film and an integrated colorflash. It offers convenience and fun at an affordable price. These lightweight analog babies which come in four colors (red, green, yellow, and blue) allow you to add a burst of color with its built-in colorflash. It works great as a fill-in flash during daytime, and a more intense colorsplash during the nighttime.

    The Pop 9: Golden* 9Eye is Watching You!

    There are lots of plastic beauties featured with four lenses, even with eight lenses, which show you moves and bring some action into your life. Among all these plastic fantastic cameras there is one with a little eccentric touch – the golden 9eye! She’s the static queen and pictures a moment of calm 9 times. This means that to shoot one object looks like a fantastic design and that’s why it is almost impossible to mess up a photo. It is often a big surprise to see the results of your film – even when you think that you took some shots which do not live up with your high expectations.

    Voigtländer VF101

    Searching through the internet what kind of new camera I could buy, I caught a sight of a nice rangefinder camera branded Voigtländer. The magic name of this optical factory and my desire for a cool semi-automatic rangefinder camera convinced me to buy this Voigtländer VF101. After a few researches I found out a mathematic formula for this camera: "Voigtländer + Zeiss Ikon + Rollei = VF101" – wow - that sounds a strange combination! How did these 3 prestigious names of German camera producers go together to produce this little tiny and sweet VF101 (who has also a twin-sister called Zeiss Ikon S312)... well, that needs a little history lesson ...

    Fast and Loose Fuji! Regarded as the photojournalist's choice where high-speed shooting (and developing) was a priority in the days before digital, Fuji Neopan 1600 is still the film lover's preference when capturing street and portrait photos under pretty much any lighting conditions.

    Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim

    You won't believe the results you get with this 100% plastic camera. I bought my Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim (known as a 'Viv' in some circles) from eBay after years of lusting after one. It has everything required for anyone with a good eye to become an amazing photographer: absolutely no control over anything, fixed exposure/aperture/focus, no battery or flash; just put a film in and away you go.

    Agfa Clack

    The Agfa Clack camera was produced from 1954 until 1965. It uses 120 mm film and is part of the Agfa box series – several kinds of cameras designed like a box which were inexpensive and easy to use for everybody. After I had unpacked my Agfa Clack camera I almost had to laugh because of its unusual and somehow funny look – it is the big black teddy bear among all my other analogue cameras. I found it on an online auction for 8€.

    Supersampler : Never a Disappointing Picture

    I've had my supersampler for almost a year and it's one of the best purchases i've made. It took shooting a few rolls to get the hang of how the camera works, but now I rarely get a "bad" picture from it. Two important things to keep in mind when shooting with this camera: 1) the more light in your environment, the better. This camera is really meant for outdoor usage, specifically on a sunny day...that's when you'll get the best colors from your film, and 2) Motion. This camera is great at capturing motion if you take advantage of it. You can shoot your subject as it's moving or move you camera while shooting. This will produce much more interesting photos than holding the camera still while shooting a static subject.

    Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim

    Now we’re talking... The Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim is an all-plastic 22mm-lensed piece of crap that takes some of the most wonderful images you’ll ever see produced from a camera. What strikes you when you first hold the Vivitar UW&S is it’s weight – or lack of. It truly is feather light, even with the film inside. A single button sits on top, there’s a rudimentary tiny viewfinder.. and that’s it. Just point, click, and go develop those near-fisheyed strange and beautiful shots.

    The Holga 135BC: A Boy Finds His Camera

    Last year around this time, I was interning at a local newspaper. The editor asked me one day to go out and take some pictures for them with a little digital point and shoot. The editor was so impressed with my shots, he wondered if I had taken any photography lessons. "No", I said. "You have a great eye for it, though. You should think about taking up photography." So a few short months later my birthday rolled around, and after having a discussion with a friend who was familiar with Lomography, I decided to blow some birthday money on a Holga 135BC. Well...what a joy that has been.

    Whoops... I can't! Holy crap I love this camera. I know you hear it all the time. Everyone loves the LC-A. I didn't buy into what I thought was just hype at first, either. I heard 'LC-A this' and 'LC-A that' and never really understood why I shouldn't just photoshop a digital picture. Then I bought one. It was like a revolution.

    Love & Sprockets:  A Lubitel 166+ Masterclass

    There is something so exciting about shooting 35mm film through a medium format camera when the sprocket holes on the film are exposed. The Diana+ can do it courtesy of the 35mm back. And with some tape and foam and rubber-bands you can Macgyver something effective on some other cameras. But I’ve never used a camera that shoots 35mm film through the sprocket holes with the quality and control of the Lomo Lubitel 166+.

    When I decide to make a trip somewhere, there is nothing better than my Diana F+. Instead of buying some postcards, I actually prefer taking some shots with my jewel: you cannot imagine anything more vintage and retro! That’s why I strongly recommend this camera to all the travelers and nostalgic of the ‘60s.

    Tipster Of The Week: With Or Without Lubikin

    By now, you must have heard of the new king of Lomotown- the Lubitel 166+ made its debut recently together with his faithful assistant, the very optimistic Lubikin which exclusively is in charge on any of the camera's internal 35mm affairs thus making the Lubitel a very un-modern but hip, bi-format twin lens reflex camera of its kind.

    Grrrrlllllrrrrrrrrr! The little bear let you take the small picture. Wait one or two minutes. Here it is! You got your picture! I’ve chosen the White edition, because I like milk, and I like the snow too. The white Edition has been made for me. I confess that the Chocolate edition is sexy too, but it’s a question of feeling. The white is very beautiful, even if it’s hard to see this cam on the LSI shop (white…on a white background!)

    Actionsampler - A Diary For The Eyes

    The ActionSampler: the classy, Andy Warhol-type feel of the Pop 9, but subtract a few frames and add movement. The synchronization of the lenses not only creates motion, but adds more layers to the entire photo as a whole, allowing for more room to learn from and dissect your shots. You not only have one photo to look at and analyze/admire/abhor/etc., but you've got 4 sub-photos, too; you basically have 5 different views in one simple "click.”
