    Rewind : Professor Radionov

    You've always 'oohed' and 'aahed' over that fantastic LCA 'Minitar-1' lens that yields vivid images with radiant colors, saturation, vignetting, among other things ... but do you know who designed that talented beady eye?

    Behind the Scenes : Q&A with Superlighter

    With a username fit for a superhero, I'm sure you've seen this name in the community - "Superlighter":http://www.lomohomes.com/superlighter! He is Aurelio Laloni, a Decorator based in Osimo, Marche region, Italy. He says he earned a diploma of Maestro d'Arte in Art School, but he doesn't feel like a Maestro! While he claims to be a non-musician, he does enjoy listening to music, and is a self-described "party DJ, a discreet painter, and a divine dancer." Now, let's get to know him more, shall we?

    Relaunch: New Lab (upload tool) and Homes (your gallery)

    Some days ago we kindly asked for some test users to try out our new Lab. We got great feedback from you - positive and constructive. This helped us a lot to improve everything and now the time has come to launch it for all of you. Bear in mind that it's not completely finished yet, some features will be worked in over the coming weeks. Even so, we are more than happy to hear your feedback.

    Behind the Scenes: Q&A with Zoe Ezequiel

    Zoe Ezequiel ("zoe191":http://www.lomohomes.com/zoe191) is one of the most revered female Lomographers in Manila, Philippines. Her pictures are full of life, and reflects her love for traveling and exploring new places. However, she does not know how to ride a bike, and doesn't know how to swim (nice to know I'm not alone, Zoe!). When not taking pictures, she works as a technical writer (__"I make user guides and online help for a software company"__). She admits that she's allergic to cold air and cold water, but she wishes to travel someday to a place that has snow. Also, __"I have never had a toothache so I don't know how painful that is and I wish I never would."__

    Introducing the Special Edition Instax Mini 7S Choco and White

    Polaroid-style photography is back with a vengeance in the shape of Fuji 'Cheki' instant cameras. Only this time the picture quality and development time are heaps better and a whole bunch of mod-cons are thrown into the deal. Unlike the old-style Polaroid snappers, the battery is now inside the camera, instead of in the film cartridge, making the cameras more economical and environmentally friendly. Also, now the Fuji cameras use Fujifilm Instax Mini, which is much easier to get your hands on.
