Okay, so I admit it, the lomography bug has bit me and I am trying out a couple of new cameras: the new 35mm movie camera and the 360′ panoramic camera. Both made through the Lomography group, known for their toy cameras. What can I say? They were ‘on sale’ at one of my local camera stores. Neither are terribly expensive although parting with any money during these economic times takes some guts. But I have a birthday coming up and hopefully I will receive enough money to cover my splurge. 🙂
I just returned from a 3-day road trip to Baker City, Oregon. I was bold. I left my digital SLR camera at home. Yikes, did I really say that? I packed a Holga 120N with flash, my Hasselblad 500 C/M and the two new cameras: The Spinner and the LomoKino.
Now I wait for my film to be developed. I’ll have some of it back on Wednesday and the rest next Saturday. The waiting kills me, but I’ll try to be patient. I have other things to do while I wait…..like finally put up the rest of Christmas. Oh, and make my cards. I haven’t even done that yet. I have narrowed it down to 6 photos that I might use, but have to choose one or two.
So what can I say about these two new cameras? I do have some strong feelings about their ease/difficulty of use, but I think I want to wait and pass judgement after I see my first rolls of film. Come back next Saturday and I’ll share my successes and failures.
