    LC-A Big Book Chapter 30: LOMO LC-A Night Vision Device

    The core of the night vision device is the "Elf" - the smallest night vision device in the world. One beautiful day, one of the lomographers got hold of this device and tried to shoot pictures with it just held in front of the lens. The result was nothing spectacular but a new idea had been born.

    LC-A Big Book Chapter 93: Film and Development

    Picking film for your camera is similar to choosing the right type of canvas, colours and brushes for a good three hours of painting. Even though the use of film and development is a bit more expensive than digital options, the wide variety and possibilities along with the simple flair of purely analogue film are definitely worth the price. A good knowledge of your film type (colour negative, B/W, slide film!x-pro) and film speed is half the rent of getting the shots you want. For all things film related you should definitely check out: "www.lomography.com/filmshop": www.lomography.com/filmshop

    Real Gabinete Português de Leitura

    There are few places in the world, which I have visited because of one pictures I have seen of it. Such a place is the Real Gabinete Português de Leitura. A colonial library in the centre of Rio. A couple of years ago I was intrigued by a massive grand format picture from Andreas Gursky. He is one of the most famous photographers of our time, he surely is the most expensive one. His technique is to manipulate and enlarge pictures. His topic is the gathering of large groups and the enhancements of architectonic structures. He also chose the Gabinete as a sujet and that was, why I went there.

    Similarly to the LOMO LC-M, the LOMO LC-M2 was only produced in very small quantities and was almost impossible to obtain. And what on earth is KRAB? KRAB is an underwater casing for the LOMO LC-A. However, it seems this was a matter of such secret production that even in the LOMO PLC’s own museum in St Petersburg the existence of the 1.5kg heavy cast iron casing is being contested.

    Chapter 5: Birth of the Lomo Kompakt Automat

    The clammy hands of the Director General trembled as the Vice Minister left the room with the full aura of his position, "And you, Mikhail, have done a great job. Despite everything, I must say that the camera's closing mechanism isn't half bad, and also the click that sounds when I take a photo is notably melodious to my sensitive ears. Keep up the good work that way the honour of your factory with its three Orders of Lenin can be assured". The first prototype of the Lomo Kompakt Automat, shortened to LOMO LC-A, was officially accepted and mass production was able to begin.
