The retro camera fanatics at Lomography are diving into the world of instant photography with a colorful new shooter packed with all the charm and nostalgia of the 35mm Lomos you've known for years. It follows from the spirit of the Impossible Project, which proved that stirring up interest in lo-fi photo is eminently…
Lomography, maker of your favorite retro plastic film cameras, is diving into the world of digital with a new package of three experimental lenses for micro four thirds mirrorless cameras. The photos look pretty incredible, even if they're not exactly "high quality."
In 1840, Joseph Petzval invented an optical portrait lens, which for the rest of the century would be used to take loads of photos. Now, the retro-fanatics at Lomography have reengineered the lens from the ground up for today's Canon and Nikon cameras. And the photos are incredible.
If there's one thing that's keeping traditional analog film still alive, it's Lomography's relentless pursuit to keep the medium alive with unique cameras that always seem to bring a new approach to film photography. And this time around it's introducing the Konstruktor: a $35 build-it-yourself plastic camera that…
Many photographers who still shoot on film do so for its unique aesthetics. But a small subset just downright hate digital cameras, and with Lomo's new Belair X 6-12 and its retro bellow mechanism hanging around their neck, no one will ever mistake their shooter for one of those new-fangled digital monstrosities.
The new Fisheye Baby 110 recalls the spy cameras from Cold War thrillers. Except instead of using them to perpetrate acts of espionage, you'll use them to take wonderful, lo-fi photos from last night's party.
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…
Styled kind of like an old Kodak Brownie, Lomography's first-ever video camera, the Lomokino, shoots video on ordinary rolls of 35mm film with a little crank of a handle. Capable of squeezing up to 50 seconds of footage onto a standard 36-frame roll, the finished results are a real throw back to ye olden days.
11 months before the next Russia Day, Lomography's wrapped the classic Ruski film-camera in red goats' leather and painted fertility symbols on it. Why they did that, I'm not sure, but I do like the soviet badge on the back.
For seafarin' types only (oh, ok, you landlubbers can use them too), Lomography's new type of film camera comes in four fishy variants, all with 22mm wide-angle lenses.
Apply as many filters as you want in Instagram, but you're not making art. For that you need 35mm film, updated with Lomography's latest take on an old Soviet classic, the LC-Wide.
I got three rolls of film processed today, and have been sobbing ever since. Why? Because only 17% of the shots came out. You might say it's my own fault for using film in a digital world, but you're wrong.
It's got the best name in camera-land, and looks incredible too. The Lomography-brand camera takes 35mm film but exposes the photos with visible sprocket holes (see below for an example), and also features a reverse gear for moving between frames.
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.
Built using household supplies like floppy disks and plastic food containers, Peekfreak's cameras are hilariously fun and brilliantly pared down, with no knobs or buttons to press. Wait until you see how bare bones the insides are:
