Sounds like fun. Should the prints be mounted? Also, what size should they be?
Thanks,
Don

I sent mine off on Saturday. The post office guy said it should take about a week for the international ones. :)

Dave,

I received yours today. It's excellent! Great stuff.

I will either print mine this week and send out or it'll be sometime around the 25th (I'm away in between).

Quite jealous of the Holga 'look' on your print.

I think I'll end up using a Box Tengor neg. for the print as most of my Lubitel shots just end up looking like any other camera -- I did think of deliberately playing with the Toy Camera idea and using a Lubitel to produce as high a quality image as possible but rejected that idea as not being in the spirit of a Toy Camera print. :)

OK I sent my prints out this afternoon. Hope you guys like them. I realized as I write this that I didn't include any info, so here it is:

Toy Camera: Lomo Fisheye Camera - http://www.lomography.com/
Film: Kodak Gold 400
Paper: Kodak Royal (?)
Mounted on 4 ply and matted with 8 ply, both acid free museum board
Location: Bradley Airport, CT as I was boarding the plane on the tarmac

This is a cool little camera. I took a whole series of pics as I went from Bradley to St Louis one day for a business trip.

Regards, Art.

Bastiaan - I got your print today. It is superb! Very good choice for the Holga look :)

I was really impressed with your printing. This is the first FB print I've handled (that was made by someone else!) and I liked the subtleness of the tones. Beautifully done.

Can you tell me how you got the print so flat? There's not a curl or a bump on it! I've never managed that degree of flatness with FB - what is your secret? :)

Bastiaan,

I also received yours. Very nice. The perspective is great.

Mine will go out tomorrow, I hope. I printed them a few weeks back but haven't gotten round to posting.

Mine hit the mail today.

Dave, your print was breathtaking. You are definitely getting the fuzzy end of this lolipop.

Mine all went out yesterday. Sorry for the delay.

Decided to send two -- one Lubitel, one box camera.

Cheers Matt - yours arrived a couple of days ago. Damn, I'm going to have to buy a lubitel now ;)

The Lubitel is a genuinely good camera, in my experience. The ergonomics of using it aren't great but when the lens is stopped down a few stops and used on a tripod you can get pretty impressive prints.
