    Tipster of the Week: The Inverted Equation of Cross Processing

    If you're in for more experiments and wanting to do something with your rolls of film a bit differently other than baking it, cutting it into pieces and even fermenting it; how about cross processing? I know, this is much common now in Lomography next to cheddar cheese, but there is a scientific way of doing it! And all you need to know about it is here, courtesy of our Tipster of the week!

    Tipster of the Week: The Future of 220 Film

    The digital image processing is omnipresent these days, and more often than not we are always confronted of the film's possible extinction in the future. But we're Lomographers, right? And we don't believe in such cynical pronouncement. Just like our tipster here who just can't get enough of using medium format film!

    Can I Put 220 Film in a Holga?

    Will a roll of 220 film fit into your Holga? Do you have to make any special modifications to use it? I found the answers by reading articles online, but more importantly, through trial and error.

    Pentax 645: Medium Format Quality with the Handling of a 35mm SLR

    Many of us get our start in medium format photography when we buy our first Holga. The size of the negative blows us away in comparison to those 24mm x 36mm rectangles. And while I would never be without a Holga sometimes I need a little more precision and focus. When that happens I turn to my Pentax 645, a medium format camera with the handling of a 35mm SLR.

    Yashica MAT 124G – The Japanese Gentleman

    After a while I started photography I had the wish to try medium format. So my photography teacher in school said one day to me that he will borrow me his Yashica MAT 124G. I have plenty of time, I don`t have to hurry, he`ll tell me when he wants his camera back.

    Widepan Pro II - The Panoramic Monster

    „What the f...?“ is the most common reaction of people I know. People I don`t know start to lapse in an everlasting gaze when they see this kind of monster. Sometimes I was asked if I am some kind of topographer and when you tell people that this is „just“ a camera follows the everlasting gaze again.

    This camera, its design and possibilities are enormous. As a reflex camera can have a clear idea of what you're photographing, focus and shoot. Its wide range of speeds and aperture openings allows you to take pictures in all situations. They are also formats: square, rectangular and 35mm can also be used ... is a lovely camera!.

    Botanical Garden (Botanisk Have)

    The Botanical Garden in Copenhagen is owned by University of Copenhagen, and has a history that goes back to 1600. As the garden, the university and the city developed, it was moved from location to location until October 9th 1874, when the garden opened in its present location. Close to Nørreport Station, it's open during the day and entry is free.

    Nørreport Station is in the center of Copenhagen and fully subterranean. It has three platforms: Metro, S-trains (greater Copenhagen metropolitan area), and regional- and InterCity trains (throughout the country). It's the busiest station in Denmark - approximately 300000 people travel through every day. Currently, it's the only station that connects to both the Metro and regional train networks.

  • The Lubitel + With 220 Film

    The Lubitel + With 220 Film

    We all know that new Lubitel 166+ takes both 120 and 35mm films. But I have tried 220 film and it works too! 220 films are longer 120 films, but without the protecting paper. You can shoot twice as many images, but you have to do something about the red window on the back of the camera, because as the paper-protection is missing from the film, your shots will be nothing if you don’t cover it. But this creates another problem, how far should you advance the film? That is another technique. You just guess how far to forward the film, so you'll get lots of overlapping images!
