tHe uniQue of Lomography

before, we was talk about a passion of photography. now it's about a LOMOGRAPHY FUN TIME!!

what the different of it?? the different is..photography using a greatful digital camera, but lomography using an imperfection LOMO plastic camera and must have a roll film to take a picture. Maybe most of you thinks:"whats??are you nuts??imperfection plastic camera hahh??what the interest things of that stuff?!i mean its just a toy!!" Just clean off that mind before you know more about this unique stuff and your eyes will be opened.

In some parts of the world, there are these types of photographers who prefer theirs pictures in film rather than digital(their name is lomographer). They use lomography to create their own art to show the the world that film can has something that digital doesn't have. It is the unique images with a different effect.
Some characteristics that made the lomo cameras unique are their vignettes(black borders), light leaks and saturated colors. These are the signatures of lomo cams. They are not present in every photo you take; it varies from time to time. If someone has the patience to practice learning how to use such a camera, amazing results become possible.

Lomography is something about forgetting the rules of photography. Shooting the lomo way has no limits, no boundaries. and this is the 10 rules of lomography

1. take your camera everywhere you go
2. use it any time - day and night
3. lomography is not an interference to your life but a part of it
4. shoot from the hip
5. approach the objects as close as possible
6. don't think
7. be fast
8. you don't have to know before hand what you captured on film
9. afterwards either
10. don't worry about any rules

There are many kind of lomo camera's:

ACTIONSAMPLER FLASH
The Actionsampler Flash is yet another very unique camera from Lomo that is super fun to use and produces fantastic images even in the darkest atmospheres. The Actionsampler produces its unique images by setting off 4 separate...expand review high-quality lenses in a clockwise motion, making 4 split images on one picture (quadrant style) with the addition of a powerful flip up flash (4 separate flashes to be exact!) that go off perfectly in sync with each opening shutter allowing you to take shots and experiment in any less-than-bright situation. As usual - experimentation and physical involvement are highly recommended (run with it, wave it around, stick it in people's faces, and most importantly is get close!).










COLORSPLASH CAMERA
Lomo has teamed up with those pigeon-loving dudes at Staple to create the limited edition rubberized Colorsplash Chakra camera. The first thing you'll notice about this piece is the grey and red colorway (designed by Staple of course) complete with the signature...expand review fake turd on the back. Then you might wonder about the odd looking flash sticking out the side - that's were the "Chakras" come in. The Colorsplash flash comes in seven different colors, each representing the seven basic spiritual forces (chakras) and each easily switchable with a simple rotation of the knob. Use the purple colorsplash for peace, tranquility, and closeness, the blue colorsplash for music, nightlife, and parties, the green for nature, animals and life, yellow for sports, orange for consumption, red for passion, or the multicolor colorsplash for the random and unexpected. Of course you can use the colors anyway you see fit, just be creative!





DIANA F+ CAMERA
It offers three key capabilities:
1) Integrated color flash. Like their popular Colorsplash cameras this flash allows you to slip in color gel filters(included) for a burst of colored light, day or night.
2)Long Exposure Flash. By setting your Diana F+ to the long exposure "B" setting, you can let streaming ambient light into your image, superimposing a flashed subject against a glowing, riotous, and beautiful background.
3)The Diana Flash attaches to the Diana F+ camera body camera via a two-pronged plug adapter, just like the original!
On top of that, a Diana Plug-to-Hotshoe adapter is included, which allows you to use the hi-powered, radiant Diana Flash on any standard hotshoe camera - like the LC-A+, Fisheye 2, Holga w/ hotshoe and plenty of others! The unique Diana camera shoots in 120 file format in 2 sizes - choose between 12 full-frame shots (5.2x5.2cm) or 16 smaller squares (4.2x4.2). It also features 2 shutter speeds (daytime and nighttime exposures), multiple or partial exposures, removable lens with pinhole function for super-wide angle imagery, an endless panorama feature (use this setting along with the smaller image format (4.2x4.2) to place sequential frames right next to each other and create a concurrent and unlimited panoramic image), shutter lock, and tripod thread.










FISHEYE NO.2 CAMERA
The first Fisheye camera is the bestselling Lomo camera of all time.
For this updated model, they've taken input from their dedicated user base, and added several key features:
• stronger body with metal parts
• includes a new "B" setting – allowing the expand review shutter to stay open and admit natural nightime light outside
• new multiple exposure switch enables as many shots as you like on the same frame
• a fisheye viewfinder gives you a real view preview of what you are shooting
• flash hotshoe allows for easy use with the Colorsplash Flash (not included)
The Fisheye2 uses the same high quality Japanese fisheye lense as the first Fisheye, allowing you to shoot almost 180 degrees in a single frame. Huge depth of field renders both the foreground and background in complete focus and creates great distortion effects.










HOLGA CMY
New upgraded Holga features built in color-flash system with a carousel around the flash - choose from red, blue, yellow and white. Also new to the Holga is a expand review tripod thread and shutter setting upgrade that now allows a manual shutter setting so you can keep the shutter open as long as desired. The Holga is a medium format camera, which means that it takes 120mm as opposed to normal 35mm film. Medium and large format cameras are the choice of many professionals for their excellent enlargement capabilities, crisp detailing and fuller image saturation. Because of it's design and cheap manufacture, the Holga photographic experience is completely unpredictable:the plastic lens distorts, the plastic body leaks light, the focus is soft, the edges are tunneled- all of which makes it an experimentalist's dream. You can also blast as many exposures as you want on to one frame (just don't wind it) and the Holga comes with a built-in flash for low light.










HORIZON CAMERA
This could be Lomo's most amazing camera yet. The Horizon affords you an extremely easy and rewarding way to take wide angle panoramic photographs. Take a look at some of the examples on the detail pages- badass and SUPER WIDE! Rather expand review than using a wide-angle lens (like the fisheye for example) or simply cropping the top and bottom of the frame like pedestrian "panoramic" film, the Horizon actually captures a full 120 degrees of image for these incredible photographs that look like nothing else out there. It's also super easy to use- basically just point and shoot and you'll have these beautiful panoramic shots that are so cool they almost look fake. It features a multicoated glass lens, shutter settings for day and night time, and a fixed f/8 aperture, all of which makes the picture both eye popping and easy to take. The Horizon takes normal 35mm film, but the film is slowly exposed as the lens swings left to right and the resulting negative is a whopping 58mm wide.







LC-A+
The LC-A+ takes the best features and super-useful capabilities making it simply the finest, surprising, robust, vividly colorful, and expand review soundly addicting snapshot Lomo. This multi-coated beauty of a lens is the reason for most of the Lomos magical & famous effects - including over-intense color saturation, sharp contrast, vignetting at the edges, occasionally selective focus, and a whole host of other quirks that only the Lomo's analog wizardy can deliver. In addition, Lomo has taken the advice of it's community and has added powerful new mulitple and long-exposure features. The new MX (multiple exposure) switch allows you to superimpose one image on top of another an infinite amount of times for unique effects. Long exposure fans will love the addition of a cable release thread and cable release included in the LC-A+. No more blurry, shaky pictures when you place the Lomo somewhere sturdy and use the cable release to fire the shutter! For colorful, surprising and unique photos everytime - you can't get much better than this.










OCTOMAT CAMERA
Ever wonder when the Lomo folks would venture into movie cameras? Well don't get too excited, it hasn't happened yet, but the result of the Oktomat is a cross between photography and Super 8 video that will have you in a shooting expand review frenzy. One push of the shutter gets you 8 shots in sequence over a period of 2 seconds, all on one print exposure.










SUPERSAMPLER CAMERA
This camera may look like a toy (and in some ways it is), but it actually takes brilliant photographs. The Supersampler has 4 separate high-quality lenses which go off in succession, making 4 split images on one picture. You can adjust the expand review shutter speed to take the 4 snaps in 2 seconds, the standard, or 0.2 seconds for really fast stuff. It's incredibly simple to use, completely spontaneous, and about the most fun you can have with a camera. There's no viewfinder and the lens has a sharp enough focal length that you can take clear pics as close as 1ft from your subject. Basically that means you hold the thing out, press the shutter button, move it around and experiment your ass off (remember the 2 seconds). The only drawback with the Supersampler is that you pretty much have to use it outdoors, in bright lighting situations.
