    Hi

    I've a dedicated Lomo shop next to where I shoot on Sundays.

    Open 11:00 till 19:00 local DST on Sunday, where I came from they padlocked playground swings on Sundays.

    Pretty full range of cameras colours etc, film rack, mini lab (c41) and 'fine art' exhibit, not my style but not lomo either! eg FSU pano etc.

    If they have free schedule on lab they will do a same day service- on Sunday.

    (The local Sunday pharmacy also has 35mm film but no 120.)

    They did not have a demo Russar yet!

    Lomos are still in street use mainly trendies, though spotted an oldster with Lubitel I asked 'ebay?' 'no Lomo'!

    Lomography had done many nice things in my opinion - I am waiting for couple of years and then I will buy some used nikon mount petzval, without them this would not be possible.
    LC-A wide is also nice camera, not my thing, but for sure is nice, then reborn of russar, Belair camera... who knows, maybe they will even make good and cool looking instax wide camera.

    EDIT: I see now Belair had instax wide back ... I want this :o

    i couldn't agree with you more about lomography.
    they have done better "outreach" with photography
    than a lot of camera / photography stores+companies ..
    i don't mean showing up at trade shows but
    they have made cameras, new lenses, FUN STUFF
    and reintroduced photography to a whole sector of people because they are looking
    for "fun" not ansel adams ... that regular camera companies may have tried but overlooked.
    polaroid hit on this quite a bit with their wide instant cameras and their JOYCAM ...
    the lomo stores seem to be packed with "stuff" and they give workshops
    on the weekend. they had even asked me in their chicago store to
    give a caffenol-demo on one weekend last year, which unfortunately
    had to decline ( family obligations and air-fare/room-lodging ) ..
    they are every bit on top of things as much as ilford and adox ( hopefully EK/KA )
    ( they used to or still advertise here on apug as well ).
    and to think ( from what his chum/ pal/TA told me ) i used to serve him
    coffee 20 years ago when he was designing the whole lomographic plan ...


    ====

    the whole claiming "hipsters" are lomo's only target market
    is like saying the only target market for LF cameras is old obsessive compulsive
    white guys with beards which is as far away from the truth as it can be. there are
    plenty of people who aren't old or white or men or have OCD who use LF ...

    if you want to find out why they aren't selling in UA anymore, call lomo .
    there is a phone number+email address on their website that goes to their office.
    because i think has more to do with a distribution contract running out than "cool people" wanting to
    buy records and 8-track tapes instead.

    You all speak of certain metropoles. So far I have only come across 1 person with a Lomo camera (Diana F).

    In Hamburg and in Warsaw I see relatively often people with plastic cameras. And yes - every second person is a girl. Recently I met a real Lomo fun: he has bunch of cameras (not only Lomo, also Plaubel Makina!), and has around 30.000 pictures on his Lomography profile! All taken with film.

    I use Lomo film in 110 but only because that's all there is!

    Which also says it there, they are keeping while formats alive...

    Here's the link you were referring to before your changed your above post (#71) to address a completely different thought:

    1000's of 120 films for sale 1940's to 2015 expiry dates see advert for more details

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."
