We’re big fans of Lomo photography, so we’re always pleased to see new models – like the Lomography La Sardina film camera range.
It’s a very fishy-themed camera, based on the design of a sardine tin, as you might have guessed from the one pictured above and the three cameras featured over the page,. They go by the names of El Capitán, Fischer´s Fritze, Sea Pride and Marathon, each with their one vintage-style imagery and colour.
We have featured the Lomo LC-A+, not least when it celebrated 25 years last year. Well, it’s 26 this year and the camera that started the whole Lomography thing off is back as the Lomo LC-A+ White.
It’s quite a package too. This Soviet-era 35mm camera still has that Russian Minitar 1 f/2.8 32mm lens, but this time comes with a white camera body with white leather detailing that’s ‘inspired by a Japanese garden’. There’s also a multiple exposure switch for easy, real-time double-exposure, expanded film ISO settings from 100 to 1600, a cable release thread for shake-free night-time and indoor shooting and a hot shoe for external flash.
Oh yes, there’s also a cool matching white case and the option to upgrade to allsorts of extras, some of which are pictured over the page. Only 1,000 worldwide, it’s priced at £379.
Another quirky, vintage-style camera from Lomography – the Sprocket Rocket.
It’s the world’s first dedicated ‘sprocket hole’ camera,able to fire out huge panoramic shots across 35mm film, including the sprocket holes. But that’s not all – it’s got a ‘reverse gear’ too, which allows you to use the shiny knobs on top of the camera to move it back and forth to create something very unique to you.
It’s not rocket science, but it’s probably a lot of fun. Grab one now online, the price is 79 Euros.
It’s still a retro-style film camera, but the Spinner 360 from Lomography really does offer something different from the previous range of vintage-style snappers.
It’s the first infinite shot, 35mm panoramic camera from Lomography, giving you the option of shooting 360-degree images. How? Well in practical terms, just pull the trigger cord, which set loose the camera on its axis, able to produce up to eight panoramic shots on a 36 exposure film. No batteries either, just a rubber band drive and manual controls to grab the shots.
The camera offers 10 shooting styles (including a rollercoaster effect for wave-like images) and comes with everything you need to get you creating 360 shots. What we don’t know as yet is the price as it hasn’t been officially put on sale as yet. But with the word ‘affordable’ being thrown about and the lack of any high-end tech within, it’s unlikely to cost a bundle.
