Lomography

LOMOGRAPHY WEBSITE

Lomography is surely becoming a popular camera brand. I’ve done some research on this brand for a while an I’ve fallen for it just like every adolescent out there. I’m so envious of those who have one. Lomography is bringing back film cameras that take old school, trippy and your own expressive photos. There are some very popular cameras out and in this post I’ll explain them and their contribution to the our every changing technological world and the renewal of film and instant cameras.

Diana F+ Camera

The Diana F+ creates a dreamy photograph and allows the photographer to be as creative as they like. It comes with different type of lens such as 20mm fisheye lens, 38mm super wide lens, and etc. The Diana F+ encourages you to take pictures with 120 film. It’s more expensive to purchase these type of film and to produce them but the result comes out great. The 120 film creates square photos and you can also create panorama photos by changing the mode on the camera. The panorama allows you to take pictures that continue on to the next picture that you take. How this looks on the negative is connected pictures. You can change the exposure of the camera manually. The sound of the camera is also addictive. The charging of the flash after you take a picture, the click of the shutter, it’s all addictive. The best part about these type of cameras is that you don’t know how the pictures are going to turn out until the end.

Lomo LC-A+

Just like the Diana F+ it uses film but instead of 120 film it uses 35mm film which is cheaper, easier to find and cheaper to produce. This is a popular choice because of it’s convenience and of long term cost. The Lomo comes with tons of lenses and accessories. This camera creates a more vibrant colourful photo rather than a dreamy photo. You can adjust the exposure by a switch indicated on the camera. This camera is more user friendly than the Diana and maybe that’s why we choose to pick this instead of a Diana.

Fuji Instax Mini

It’s sad to say but Fuji has officially stopped making Polaroid cameras and film. Because of this people have announced their concern and wanted a return of the Polaroid cameras. Instead of making the Polaroid cameras again they decided to make a instant film camera. It works the same way as a Polaroid camera. You take a picture and the picture comes out. The differences is that the picture comes out from the slot on the top and the photos are two times smaller than a original Polaroid film but the quality is a bit better than the original. The photo still has the classic look but with improvement. The film is expensive but worth it if you like to have your photo asap or you’re missing those Polaroid cameras.

Lomography’s duty is to carry out it’s goal to continue classic photography products and to keep creativity to a maximum. So far they’ve caught my attention and I’m hoping to get one soon so I can show more about these camera and maybe include them into my portfolio.
