LOMO LC-WIDE



Lomography just unveiled their latest Lomo camera - the LOMO LC-WIDE. The functions and features looks cool and promising.

I've been wanting to try out Lomo for the longest time, but having second thoughts as I have no experience in film photography. Thinking thinking..



LOMO LC-WIDE


LOMO LC-A LEGACY

It's been 27 years since the Lomo LC-A entered our analogue life and took our hearts by storm with its shadowy framing, super saturated colours, sharp contrast and multiple exposures. To cherish this little camera in the past we even plated it with gold but never before expanded its lens. Now the day has come and we are welcoming the new offspring of the Lomo LC-A Legacy: The Lomo LC-Wide, that will challenge your Lomographic perception. It is a passionate celebration of the ultra-wide-angle. Still celebrating the classical features of the Lomo LC-A+, the Lomo LC-Wide adds a new dimension of format frenzy to its specially developed ultra-wide-angle 17 mm Minigon glass lens. Switch from half-frame, to square to full format and enjoy a new quality of wide-angle Lomography!







GO EXTREME

Go close, even closer than your perception of closeness tells you to and watch your favourite caterpillar being sucked into the vortex of this 17 mm glass genius. Go wild, even wilder than your mother ever allowed you to and dive into Ultra-Wide-Angle- Lomography! To up the ante a little bit we equipped the Lomo LC-Wide with three formats to choose from: full-, square- or half- format. If you don't want to think too much while you are shooting, switch to half-frame-format and fit an amazing amount of 72 shots onto one roll of 36 shots film. Fans of retro will stick to the classic square format while panoramic shots are most effective on the full format.







ULTRA-WIDE-LOMOGRAPHY

No matter if you are hooked on breathtaking panoramic shots or if you are more the-closer-the-better-type, we designed the Lomo LC-Wide to satisfy lovers of all extremes. Its delicate 17 mm Minigon glass lens combines the classical features of the Lomo LC-A with an ultra-wide-angle that will open your eyes to an unknown extent. Follow your curiosity and let the Lomo LC-Wide take you into the wide! With all this options, the Lomo LC-Wide catapults you in a format frenzy that triggers unbelievable creativity and proves itself to be a trusty offspring of the Lomo LC-A Legacy.

After so much procrastination, I finally managed to go for another bug shoot during my rest day. Was thinking of going to Venus Drive or Pasir Ris park, but I ended up going to Tampines Eco Green. This is a newly-opened nature park in Tampines, which offers a haven for biodiversity and has various natural habitats such as marshes, secondary rainforests and freshwater ponds.
