    What lenses are you referring to? Those LOMO lenses of that focal length and large aperture I know of are astro-lenses. Will they cover ULF? (I admit I know nothing about astro-lenses...)

    What Does "Lomo" Mean?

    What does "trolling" mean?

    I love when old guys use the term "hipster". It makes me think of my old neighbor who used to walk around in his boxer-shorts that were held up by suspenders, knee high socks with the two colored bands at the top, and an undershirt. He'd always come out to get the paper, grumble something about the 'damn kids' of the neighborhood, and then retreat to his recliner that had undoubtedly not seen the light of day since 1943. He must have lived a horrible, stale, lonely life in his old age. Poor guy.

    Do you mean exposed-to-keeper ratio? I think that it's about the same as my other MF camras.

    It really depends on the light. I usually take it out in optimal light for the camera/film combination, and I take the same care to frame and compose like I do with my other equipment. So by and large, I can print just about all of the exposures. As for "keepers," well, it depends on what I'm photographing. I've usually been taking it out when I've been going through alleyways, and those can be quite full of things to photograph.

    Huh. What a strange discussion. I have many very high quality LOMO motion picture lenses. I rent them to motion picture production companies in Hollywood. But I will not rent to "hipsters." Any runner that shows up in skinny jeans and a worn out plaid shirt is shown the door. :-)

    The many faces of Lomo: Superb optical manufacturer including spy satellites
    Manufacturer of the LC-A that started the Lomography company
    Lomography/Lomographer synonyme for toy camera user

    The toy camera movement is often thrown in with lomography but did in fact start 20 years earlier.
    Lomography cameras can and do produce superb pictures, the lomographic society's shoot from the hips thing is most definetly not what many Holga, Diana, LC-A users do. Most "toycamera" users know their cameras inside and out they know the results they will get with the camera they choose. Using Toycameras is often like using a LF camera AA-Style lots of previsulization and not mindless clicking.

    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    You've misrepresented my comment; I said 'the possible perception', though I suppose I might have added 'by some sections of the photo community'. Some folk actually believe that an omniscient, omnipotent supernatural being created the universe in seven days because that's what they've been taught from birth, and this is reinforced by their cultures and societies. Some of these folk don't seem to look beyond this idea, yet there doesn't seem to be *any* truth in it...

    You know, I find it ironic that scientists spent 150-odd years perfecting sharp, grainless photographic materials and lenses only for some companies to produce plastic cameras with ghastly lenses and charge stupid sums of money for them. Still, each to their own - I stand by my earlier positive comments. I have a 35mm Symbol to try out some time. I can't wait to see whether "its 3-element glass Triplet lens is something to brag about, yielding eye-popping color saturation and contrast.", and to try out its "unique fully-manual settings" that "gives you total control of your shots" is really worth the £80 Lomography.com charges for it. Now that claim of uniqueness is an outright lie on Lomography.com's part even within their own range - someone is being hoodwinked here, and it ain't me...

    Cheers,
