What makes Lomography cameras different from other film cameras?

Lomography cameras are different from other film cameras because they’re designed to be easy to use with experimentation and creativity in mind.

Many Lomography cameras have creative functions built into the camera. One of the coolest features that most Lomography cameras have is the multiple exposure switch which allows you to layer and combine photos in an instant. Usually, this technique requires the user to reuse a used film roll but the multiple exposure button allows more creative freedom when you want to pair up different scenes in one photo.

Another thing Lomography cameras have is their unique way of capturing photos. Whether it’s shooting four images in an instant, accessories to cut photos up, endless panoramic shots or even allowing the camera to go underwater, Lomography cameras are made to challenge the conventional norms of what analogue photography can be.
