Forget expensive digital and automatic cameras...what you need is a Lomo. That's
what diehard Lomographers say, and it's certainly true that Lomo's take incredible
pictures. You can't buy Lomo's in shops, normally you have to get them direct
from the factory in Russia.|
Lomo stands for Leningrad Optic and Mechanical Company in
Russian and they make the most incredible lenses.
It's called the Lomo CyberSampler. Take the shot and all four lenses are exposed over the
period of one second. The pictures are split into four when developed, making each
one a mini action sequence. You'll quickly become an addict as everything suddenly
becomes worthy of a quick snap - from barking dogs, and speeding cars, to dancefloors and
low flying planes.
The emphasis is definitely on cheerful fun - there's no focusing, shutter speed,
flash, or aperture to worry about. Just point, snap and sample the action. Diehard
Lomographers don't even use a viewfinder. You can get the pictures developed in the
normal way and it works with any 35mm film. As an added bonus the CyberSampler comes with a
36-exposure 800ASA film and a comprehensive and colourful instruction booklet with some
very impressive sample shots. Fantastic!
