    Smena 35 - Say Goodbye To Boredom, Forever!

    Is the one to choose for all you creative and restless Lomographers! The settings and techniques possible with this camera are endless and I promise you will never be bored again, no matter where you are, with this one by your side. The name 'Smena' (young generation) is therefore completely appropriate.

    The Canon AE - 1

    When I first moved to Denmark my in laws seem to think that I like cameras and to them this meant I could be a dumping ground for all their old junk. In my first week I inherited 4 cameras A canon AE 1, Nikon F5, Minolta SRT 3o3 and a canon canonette- I like my In laws. SO I decided I will review them all in a four way battle royale for the coverted award of “Best Camera From An In Law” I will be judging the cameras on 4 elements (each with a maximum available score of 10 Woops). The elements are: 1 Aesthetics, 2 Functionality and practicality, 3 image quality, 4 Mattness ( I am not really sure what this is yet) and to help me out I have called in some top quality A list celeb judges. So: LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!

    Olympus OM-10

    I picked this camera up in a charity shop for £10 (roughly $16) and it came with the body, a 35-200mm lense, a 28-85mm lense and a gigantic camera bag. Already a bargain! I then went to a local camera fair and bought 50mm lense and a 28mm lense

  • Argus C3 "The Brick"

    Argus C3 "The Brick"

    The Argus C3, a range finder camera affectionately known by its many lovers as "the Brick", is an artifact right out of the early mid-19th century machine age. The front of the camera is covered in gears, and it could easily pass for a highly specialized scientific measuring device at first glance. It is constructed of heavy Bakelite and metal, so you can guess that it's about as heavy as a brick...hence the nickname.

    Review: Lomography’s Lubitel 166+, Hands Down My Favorite Camera!

    At first I was afraid my urge to buy the Lubitel 166+ wasn't more than another breakout of GAS. Honestly, I was convinced that it would end up next to its older brother, a vintage Lubitel 2, sitting on the shelf looking pretty, but mostly just gathering dust. Turns out I couldn't have been more wrong!

    Cut 127 Film By Yourself - A Quick Guide

    127 rolls are really hard to get by these days. You can get some at auctions though they're often not really cheap. So I think the idea of cutting the film by yourself is a good alternative! It's not so difficult as it seems - have a look after the jump!
