No matter how you feel about film (sacrilege!), or the saturated, low-fi aesthetic of lomography, you've got to admit there's something special about the brightly colored Lomo cameras and their countless iterations. Something that looks that fun must be fun, right? If you've ever had the urge to buy one, now's the…
This is one of those videos that'll make you feel all warm inside. Over 20 Lomographers (toy camera-shooting people) from London got together to create a stop-motion video, combining their various films and shots for what you can see here:
Another Hipstamatic-like app for Android, with Retro Camera following in Fxcamera's footsteps by turning your snaps into ye olde worldly photos. It's got four film cameras to "shoot" with, that in turn produce four different lomo-esque effects.
Pull the trigger-cord, and away the panoramic photos snap, with the camera spinning on its axis. It's one of the coolest (and cheapest) ways to shoot 360-degree photos, and as it's from Lomography the saturated colors and effects are guaranteed.
We've seen all manner of SLR trickery in the past, but Bhautik Josh has cobbled together a fisheye camera from a soda can. Sounds totally MacGyver, but he's put the steps up on his blog for you to try out.
Not only does it look retro-brilliant, but this Holga 120 can shoot 3D photos, thanks to its dual lenses. Each lens takes a photo, which are printed side-by-side and create a 3D effect when used with a slide viewer.
At $2 this app is a heck of a lot cheaper than buying any the materials necessary for your own dark room, and I can guarantee it's less messy too. Though not quite as fun, I know.
Lomo cameras (back in the day) were popular as they were cheap as chips and almost disposable, made from just flimsy plastic. Now, they're coated in 24-carat gold and in limited edition runs of 130 pieces.
Lomography already makes an instant back for its more popular Diana F+ camera, so it was about time they did the same for their classic LC-A+ model too. It brings Polaroid-like instant photos to the highly-saturated, soft-focus photography format.
Being a lomo user, photographer Hunter Richards's Canon 5D Mark II hack has totally made my Friday. Using a Russian lomo lens from the '80s with an adapter, he managed to create a beautifully-shot lomo film worthy of your attention.
Every photographer wants to be artsy, because if their Flickr stream isn't fancy enough to pull in lots of "Oh, you're so talented" comments, what's the point? Here's some gift ideas for aspiring artsy photographers.
This Lomography Ringflash attaches to the outside of your lens, and its four lighting elements each deliver a different color to your subject. You can use it as a single color ring flash, too, but its makers encourage you to get up close to your subject and flash a picture that has four different kinds of lighting in…
Lomo is known for unique cameras, like the fisheye camera and now this eight lens camera. We have seen a four-lens camera in the past that did a little pop art effect, but the Oktomat from LOMO is the real deal. This $40 camera has eight lenses that take eight photos over 2.5 seconds. It's hell of a lot better than…
The Lomo cameras were originally known for their leaky bodies that contaminate film with errant light — perfect for art house photos. This 35mm fisheye film camera improves upon Lomo's best selling first with more image distorting capabilities, and a metal case. More, details, and sample shots, after the jump.
