    Lomo Amigos de Musica:  Cold War Kids

    Cold War Kids began in the Fall of '04 with jangly guitar, hand claps, and a Harmony amp in a storage room atop Mulberry Street restaurant in Fullerton, CA. Since then, Cold War Kids have self released 3 six-song EP's on Monarchy Music, and toured relentlessly. Much like Blue Note Artists of the '50's, the music of the group walks hand in hand with its graphic design. Bass player Matt Maust is responsible for creating the visual aesthetic by constantly documenting the band, friends, strangers, and situations both on tour and at home.

    During our last weekend trip I gave it a try with the Agfa single-use Cam. The “Le Box” is that small, it even fits into the pocket of your swimming trunks. The “Le Box” is loaded with a 400 ISO Agfa film ideal for daylight shooting! So it’s just the perfect partner for every trip where you don’t want to bring your beloved and valuable Lomo-Cam.

    The Lomographic Society Proudly Presents The Lomo LC-A+ KRAB Underwater Case!

    Back in the 1980’s, the Soviet Union’s camera industry was in full swing and a small, blocky underwater case was created for the popular Lomo Kompakt Automat camera. Crafted in solid metal, perfectly aligned with the LC-A’s knobs and curves, and designed with a distinctively Russian character, this item was never produced beyond the prototype stage and is exceptionally difficult to find.

    Colorsplash Chakra Party Photos!

    On Thursday, June 19, 2008, the place to be in New York City was Reed Space in NYC's Lower East Side, where Lomography and "Staple Design":http://www.stapledesign.com/ threw a shindig of epic proportions to launch the flashy new "Colorsplash Chakra":http://www.lomography.com/colorsplashchakra/ camera. If you were there, you're probably in a few of these photos (sorry again for the point-blank flash assault), or better yet, you may have taken a few of them, because there were Colorsplash Chakra cams hanging from the ceiling, inviting you to fondle and paw them and hopefully bathe your friends in waves of color.

Working with them on a collaborative photo challenge was a natural first step in what will surely be a long and fruitful relationship. Here are the details:

    Everything you ever wanted to do to film but were afraid to...

    Film is the medium that makes all our Lomographic ambitions reality. Understandably, for some people it's highly disrespectful to do kinky experiments to such a precious item. So for our next Lab Rats newsletter we are going to investigate the things you would like to do to film, but were too scared to try yourself.

    The Diana+ 38 and 55mm Lenses

    As promised, we’ve been spending our days, afternoons, nights, blood, sweat, and tears in the constant expansion and frenzied development of the most innovative and downright unexpected accessories and variants for the Diana+ plastic medium-format camera system. Our labors have resulted in two succulent and quite delicious lenses. The 38mm Super-Wide offers a sweeping 120° full-frame view. And the 55mm & Close-Up Lens offers TWO kinds of images: dramatic and quite-nice wide-angle shots AND extremely close macro images.
