    No one can get "hooked" on film if they don't try it. Lomo markets their products so well that many many people are trying film that would not otherwise. If you are a kid who has only taken pictures with your phone or digital point-n-shoot, you are not going to go to Freestyle and buy a Holga. But if you see one in Urban Outfitters, you just might.

    A fraction of Holga buyers will shoot more than one roll. A fraction of those people will branch out and try other cameras and techniques. However small that fraction may be, it's more than would have without Lomo out there pumping it.

    The irony is that one moderator thinks the sites I have listed are Lomo marketing sites, and several are actually sites by Lomo 'haters'. Goes to show that a minority of vocal complaints speak louder than evidence. Too funny.

    People need to understand the difference. LOMO is an optical products company in Russia that made some funky little cameras. The Lomographic Society International are the people who overprice those funky little cameras. That said, their film deals are always pretty good.

    I haven't used this in a long time, but here's my 'Lomohome': www.lomohomes.com/Minitar1

    Smenas are extremely common in Poland. A Polish guy I worked with was talking about his and was amazed at the prices people will pay for them.

    The ring flashes and most other accessories are products sourced cheaply by the Lomographic Society and then sold at extortionate prices. Only the LC-A, Smena and Lubitel are truly LOMO cameras.

    For what it's worth, I know personally at least three young persons who shoot's with either holga, Lomo LCA or some other plastic camera bought from Lomographic Society. To the best of my knowledge they have each shot several rolls of film. For everything else they use their mobile phones. So thats about 10 rolls of film sold that would otherwise be gathering dust on some shelf. Considering the amount of Lomo related sites on the net there is a lot of film being shot. And I would hazard a guess that quite a lot of them are young enough to have grown up with digital cameras. I can't see them choosing a ”normal” film camera as complement to their mobile phone or digi compact. So if 10% continues to shoot film, maybe 10% of those will want to explore film with a ”normal” camera? Every little bit helps. Right?
