    Daily Mail discovers Lomo

    In the dead tree version this is in the colour suppliment of the Sunday Mail, but for everyone else there is the online version

    "...but still take 120 film, which is no longer made"

    Can someone who's registered to the Daily Mail site correct this misunderstanding.

    Maybe if there was some place in the UK which either manufactured or distributed 120 film? Perhaps an old line company which would make such an outdated product.

    Pity.

    I sent one in.. the comments are moderated and because of the "thousands" they receive every day, it may or may not even be looked at, much less posted.

    I sent one, too. That's two of us at least, yet it says "0" comments...

    This is the Daily Mail were looking at, though. Not exactly noted for it's well researched and informative journalism ^_^
    I'm suprised they've managed to spell 'LOMO' right...

    However, you can buy reels from Lomography, which owns much of the remaining stock.
    Ha ha ha...

    Gosh, I'd almost forgotten just how sh*te the British redtops are... Shame on you for reading the Mail in the first place!

    That reminds me of an article in the Metro on pinhole photography a month or so ago - showing how to make your own pinhole camera, including the step of taking the exposed piece of photographic paper straight out of the coke-can camera and then scanning it on a flatbed to produce the final image.....

    That was an article about solargraphy where the paper in the pinhole camera is exposed for weeks or months at a time. I'm not sure but I think they were correct about needing to scan the image.
