    80$ for a 35mm film movie camera ...
    that doesn't sound too expensive to me,
    seeing a 8mm bolex costs probably that much ( had a few of them )
    a 16mm bolex costs a small fortune ( had one of them )
    and a current 35mm movie camera costs multiples of that
    ... and a vintage one, well who knows if they work.
    plenty of other stuff for less than 100$ too .. not everything there was $200.

    i find it funny that people are so pissed off about lomo cameras
    their "aesthetic" and the crowd they sell to ..
    much more fun going on there than at a "large format workshop"

    who knows maybe after they get tired of their lomo they will buy a
    thrift store camera ( will it work ? ) and "up/down grade" to being a bottom feeder
    on ebay or places like this ... or maybe the lomo is pretty much the only thing they will want ?

    who cares .. i sure don't
    ( but i might ask for a kino for my birthday )

    Lomography do not make own films. At their best they offer custom conversions.

    Remember, buying an expensive camera doesn't make you a photographer; it makes you an expensive camera owner---------

    Lomo is still cheaper than Lensbaby, Kodak Portrait 305, Verito, Cooke, Pinkham&Smith.

    You can get a Lomo for $200 and up... Or, a Diana for ballpark 60 and higher and a Holga for $25 or more... Since they all seem to fall into the Lomography category, then I guess you can pick one that suits your budget and be a "Lomographer." If you go to the website to look at buying any of these options, you can spend lots of dollars and even purchase something that matches your fashionable attire. The best part is that all this means that more people are getting interested in film for whatever reason. I say who cares as long as you are shooting film and having fun.

    Funny thing is, I've seen "Lomography Film" for sale in a few stores - regular 120 in a nice fancy "LOMO" branded box, for way more than I could buy it in the regular yellow or green box. . . . . talk about ripping you off!!!

    I guess if Lomo et al are not "real cameras", then all those people who started out using Box Brownies weren't shooting on real cameras either.

    Who cares if they're overpriced, dark-boxes with coke-bottle lenses? The people that are using them are more often than not, overcoming the limited abilities of these plastic ogres to create some outstanding images; sure they results mightn't be to everyone's taste, but can't that be said for all forms of photography/art?

    To each their own, and long live film - in any shape or form it is used to create pictures.

    What's funny, is that you can practice "lomography" with any camera.

    Sometimes I do it with my Rolleiflex, sometimes I do it with my Hasselblad.

    I even do it with my Leica, Nikons, and Pentax 6x7 occasionally. Lomography is simply the overcoming of obsession with technical limitations and theory, and just giving plain old serendipity a chance.

    Sometimes I shoot my 6x7 without the lens mounted, just held in front of the mount, so that I can tilt and shift as I please. A shroud of black duct tape is a serviceable enough bellows. That's pretty f*cking lomo, if you ask me.
