Shameless LomoPromotion

Bear with me, dear readers, as I am trying to earn some “Piggy Points” to get the camera of my dreams—the Fuji Natura Classica!!This product actually looks INCREDIBLY cool, but I’m not really one for film-making so I won’t be splurging. The movies it makes are very reminiscent of silent-era films, which to me is truly cool.

And now….on to the shameless LomoPromo…

The LomoKino – Super 35 Movie Maker Lomography in Motion: Take the next step in Lomography with the first camera that makes your  Lomographs move on any kind of 35mm film

Unique Art: Become the director of your very own LomoMovies  and produce unique and precious pieces of movie art by simply winding a crank

True Gadget: Irresistible design and unlimited creative possibilities will make gadget  loversí hearts pound faster

LomoMovies Online: Upload, watch and share your very own LomoMovies  on http://www.lomography.com Lomography in Motion- How great it must have been to witness the first pictures as they started to move or to see the Lumiere brothers amazing the crowds with their  very first short films. After over 200 years of movie making, million-dollar-special-effects, big scale film studios and endless Hollywood dramas,  we give you the chance to return back to the roots of movie making and witness the very first steps of moving Lomography.  The LomoKino allows you to become a director yourself and capture Lomographic movies on 35 mm film of any kind: no sound, no special effects,  no post production ñ just simple Lomography in motion.

Unique Art- To become a true LomoMovie director, just simply wind the crank of the magic box to capture 144 shots on one roll of 35 mm film –  which makes 36 to 48 seconds of LomoMovie. You can use any kind of 35 mm film for different effects: Slide film, colour negative,  redscale or B/W. After developing the film, spool it into the specially developed LomoKinoScope and watch your Lomographs moving over and over again.  What sounds very simple produces a unique piece of art which can either stay in your hands only or can be given as a special present to somebody  who really deserves it. Show your sweetheart how fast your heart is really pounding or capture a flying birthday cake for your grandma who will  feel catapulted back in time.

True Gadget- A wise man once said ìform follows functionî ñ naaaah ñ we like to say ìform follows motionî and thatís why we designed this camera to become a true gadget.  Its irresistible design takes you straight back into the time when people left the audience screaming because a locomotive was speeding towards them on a  movie screen and the movies were still a true business without special effects. It comes in a package either alone or with the LomoKinoScope, one film canister  and a marvelous book. Its creative possibilities are so diverse that not even we can tell the limits. Itís up to you, gadget lovers, to take this baby in your  hands and explore what movies used to be like the Lomographic way!

    Picked mine up a couple of hours ago but now I’m thinking of a way to stop my boy from wanting to crank it like there’s no tomorrow whenever he sees me using it. I’ll be broke if he keeps turning the crank! :D
