    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+.

    Diana F+: A Dive Into The Past!

    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.

    Fuji Cheki 7

    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.”

    All You Need is the Weather - Smena 35

    The Smena 35 is a true lomo camera. Maybe not the most noted but it makes a great companion. This little guy doesn't look all that much like it's siblings, but it's definitely a Smena.

    Zenit 122

    During my first year of Lomographic Studies, I only had a Fisheye Camera and Colorsplash Camera in my arsenal. I was literally craving for an LC-A so I decided to have a father-and-son talk with my dad about the legendary camera, hoping he might be impressed enough to buy me one. My plan backfired as he told me he already has a Soviet product in his collection, being a camera enthusiast himself.

    Yashica Electro 35GTN

    A black version of Yashica Electro 35 GSN with aperture priority. I guess everyone have heard of rangefinder camera. But I don’t think everyone know how it function exactly. Rangefinder cameras allow the photographer to measure the distance precisely and capture a photo which is sharp in focus. In the center of viewfinder, you will see two images, when object is in focus; the two image will overlapped and become one image as you turn the focus ring. So, let me introduce the Yashica Electro 35GTN range finder camera to all of you!

    Colorsplash?Colorsplash? color and splash? splash the color or colouring the splash? I don't know. Well, about this camera you all know this camera is so fashionable for its white body, I got mine white. I just remember seeing this cool camera in a magazine. "what the hell is that white eyecatching camera?" then I started to search it in google. That lead me to another world of lomography. COLOUR SPLASHING YOUR WORLD!!

    Love at First Sight - The Fisheye

    170-degrees of beauty in every shot. Easy to load, shoot, and unload. It was a relief! I had been so engrossed in digital photography that this whole world of quirky and strange photos had completely evaded me up to that point. This camera has been the most fun I have ever had with a camera. I bring it to parties, get-togethers, even just on walks. Every time I press the shutter button I feel as if I have created a magnificent work rivaled by no other photos.

    This is such an amazing black and white film: fast speed, well controlled highlights and very nice shadow detail. Wide exposure latitude makes the DELTA 400 perfect for almost all types of photography: outside, inside, studio, landscape or portrait. If you’re interested in black and white, this is definitely a must!

    Lomography Diana+ - Staff Review

    A faithful reproduction of the '60s iconic camera of the same name, the Diana+ retains the best features and offers an all-new functionality. Back in the 1960s, a plastic camera made waves in Hong Kong. It was called the Diana - a lightweight medium-format camera manufactured by the Great Wall Plastics factory. It was inexpensive and easy to use, and can produce dreamy, soft-focus images that lo-fi enthusiasts go crazy about. The Diana was such a big hit, inspiring rival companies to make copies and knock-offs of the iconic camera.

    Hooked on the Fish

    Ridiculously fun, absolutely flexible and always dependable. I bought a Fisheye 2 Camera a year ago. It was supposed to be a platform for catharsis and the vehicle that would introduce me to the wonderful world of Lomography. Now countless rolls later and an arsenal of cameras at hand it remains to be the closest one to my heart.

    To be honest this is my very first Lomography Camera. I bought this beautiful camera in 2007 as a birthday present from my parents. I bought it from Lomographic Society Indonesia. I just remember my heartbeat goes crazy when my fisheye no.2 arrived at my house. I run from my bedroom and take the fisheye no.2 from the delivery man. It was that happy excited feeling and that feeling always come when I bought a Lomography camera :)

    The Vivitar Ultra wide and Slim is a pretty basic camera. It’s a small piece of plastic fully set (as in set aperture f11, a 1/125 shutter speed and fixed focus from 5ft to infinite) don’t have the fun bulb features, hot shoe, multiple exposures and don’t use any kind of battery, it’s a great camera to be used only in sunny days!
