New Lomography Camera Options are Artsy, Unique and Totally CoolSeptember 20, 2011
We just got a couple new items in from Lomography. For those of you not familiar with them, Lomography is a particularly artistic camera manufacturer, whose focus is on giving you something different but still outstanding. People who choose Lomography blaze their own trail, and have a unique way of seeing the world that they wish to share with others.
I'm sure there are a number of you who think that's just some marketing schlock, but take a look at these new products first. If you're looking for something unique, the Lomography La Sardina Camera and Flash definitely fits the bill. This film camera, as the name suggests, looks like a sardine can! There are a few different styles available, both with and without a flash, and each one serves as a way to express your individuality. Personally, I'm drawn to the 'El Capitan' style, but the 'Sea Pride' is also pretty tempting.
But don't think that the La Sardina Camera is just about looks, it will also give you some great photos! The camera features a wide angle lens, nighttime and long exposure bulb settings, and a rewind dial for multiple exposure shots, so you can get really creative with your photography. The La Sardina is also tripod mountable too, so you can spend some extra time setting up that perfect photo.
There's another cool new camera from Lomography available too, the Lomography Holga 135 35mm Camera. This one has a more classic, retro look, and the shots you'll get will be full of character. Like the La Sardina, the Holga 135 is a film camera that allows you to take multiple exposure shots, but you can also take really long exposure shots, for a cool blurred effect. There's a real vintage approach to the Lomography Holga, which is why so many people look for it at OpticsPlanet.
Both of these new cameras are great for beginner photographers. They use 35mm film, which can be developed at most drug stores, and they're simple to use while also having a lot of cool features for learning about photography. Beginners and anyone who wants a different style when they take some photos should definitely check out our new cameras from Lomography.
