Are you outfitted with a high-resolution, full-frame sensor? How does the MTF curve of your lens compare to others? Can you record noise-free images at high-ISO levels? How many raw shots can your camera take before the buffer fills? Getting the top-quality shots for clients is important, but obsessing over these details in your professional work may lead to falling into a creative funk when it comes to the artistry of photography. Sometimes you just need a fresh shooting experience to allow you to home in on the creativity that photography can allow.

Shooting film in a plastic body with a fixed shutter speed and few other controls means you will be concentrating on composition alone. Lomography, as both a manufacturer and ideology, is one of the leading proponents in the world of toy cameras.

Lomography Fisheye No. 2 – Staff Review · Lomography

Ina group of Viennese students came across the Lomography LC-A while touring Prague and quickly adapted to the shoot-from-the-hip style of photography fostered by this bare-bones film camera. Looking back at the camera that started it all, the LC-A is still in existence and has evolved into a handful of other forms comprising different film formats and focal lengths.

Lomography’s next entrant into the world of toy cameras debuted during the Photokina convention—the unique, multi-lens ActionSampler.

Featuring four lenses arranged in a quadrant, this camera splits each 35mm frame into a series of four images on one frame.

A slightly different approach to combining four exposures into one frame, the SuperSampler also sequentially records four exposures; however, it juxtaposes these exposures laterally across a 35mm frame, rather than staggered in a grid. Not content with just four frames, the ActionSampler eventually evolved into the Oktomatwhich utilizes the same four-lens concept, but with eight lenses on the front of the camera. Six years later, Lomography tweaked this basic design and added a larger, clearer optical viewfinder, greater exposure control, and a built-in flash to result in the second iteration of the fisheye, aptly named the Fisheye No.

Embracing then antiquated miniature cartridge film format, Lomography has also produced a scaled-down version of this popular series—the Fisheye Baby —which shares the same design as the Fisheye No.


Originally built in the s, in Hong Kong, the Diana is one of the best known, most historical, and easily recognizable toy cameras around. Keeping the same classic profile of the Diana F the flash-capable version of the first Dianaincluding the distinct turquoise top plate, proprietary flash plug connection, and center optical finder, Lomography’s take on the classic did see some marked distinctions from its half-century-older sibling, including its removable lens that reveals a wide-angle pinhole, and the ability to accept a slew of accessories, such as add-on mnualmznual instant film backor a 35mm roll film back.

Similar to Lomo’s treatment of the LC-A during its founding, in the company updated another classic Soviet-era film camera: Where Lomography’s new version strays from its predecessors is in its ability to handle 35mm and film formats, record endless panoramic images up to the length of the filmand it features an improved viewfinder and closer-focusing lens.

It also has the very lomi designation of being able to rewind film for re-shooting the same roll multiple times for creative multiple exposure effects.

Also inLomography made fksheye entrance into the world of film itself, to complement the ever-expanding lineup of film cameras being produced.

The first two films released clearly echo the creative nature of the cameras themselves: X-Pro Slidea color transparency film optimized for cross-processing in C chemistry; and Redscale XRa color negative film that has been reverse-rolled so you shoot through the film base to produce dramatic red color casts.

Moving ahead toLomography announced a pair of panoramic 35mm cameras at Photokina: In typical Lomography fashion, both cameras take a unique approach to producing an image with an aspect ratio wider than the conventional 3: The Sprocket Rocket tackles this challenge with its ability to record an image twice as long as a standard 24 x 36mm frame, as well as an image that covers the full width of 35mm film, bleeding over the sprockets that are typically manaul in other cameras.

The unique camera also features a wide-angle 30mm lens, can wind film in both forward and reverse directions for creative multiple exposures, and has a bulb setting for making long exposures.

The amount of rotation and length of exposure is determined by how you manipulate the string, and up to eight panoramas can be recorded per roll of film.

Going back to basics, saw the introduction of what is now one of the most expansive series in the Lomo catalog, the La Sardina. A built-in top viewfinder is integrated into the design, multiple and long exposures can be made, and a micro contact is built in to tisheye the attachment of the proprietary Fritz the Blitz external flash.


Breaking out of the realm of just still images, a new Lomography movie camera was also announced in The LomoKino 35mm Movie Cameraalong with dedicated LomoKinoScope for playback, is a completely manual, low-tech movie camera for producing hand-cranked short films on readily available 35mm photographic film.

Recalling the look of early cinema, this fissheye can record between three and five frames per second, depending on how quickly you crank the film, and up to frames can be recorded on single roll of film.

InLomography began to get a bit—just a bit—more serious with its next camera release, the Belair X medium format camera. Again paying homage to past, beloved film camera designs, the Manuzl recalls vintage folding cameras with its use of a bellows for focus adjustment, and to maintain a compact profile when not in use.

Capable of recording in 6 x 6, 6 x 9, and 6 x 12 formats, the Belair takes film and has an interchangeable lens system for using either 90mm or 58mm focal length lenses. Also distinct from other Lomo cameras, the Belair requires a battery to use the electronic automatic exposure shutter for consistent pomo results.

Lomography launched its first Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Smartphone Film Manuaalan ingenious and simple item that permits converting your film originals to digital files with the use of a smartphone. In typical Lomography fashion, this lo-fi device uses just a simple backlight and cradle design to illuminate your film and hold your phone in place to gain clear photos of your film for quickly sharing online via the dedicated Lomoscanner app.

Also appeasing those who aren’t content with existing technology, the Konstruktor F Do-It-Yourself 35mm Film SLR Camera is a complete kit, allowing you to build your own fully functioning camera from scratch. Again, not at a loss to gain inspiration from historical designs, this update to a classic lens from is Lomography’s gateway into the digital arena.

Maintaining a classic appearance, the portrait-length lens is fitted with a polished brass exterior, utilizes a set of seven Waterhouse stops for aperture control, and has manual geared rack focus control. Skip to main content.
