    I found Lomography film in a store.

    I was in an American Eagle store the other day and I found a three pack of Lomography 400, 36 exp film. I don't know how many other stores would have it, but I thought it was an interesting find. They also had a Fisheye II camera and a camera that has 8 lenses built in. It was a point and shoot I believe.

    if it had 8 lenses, it must have been a professional camera.

    For people not in the states, American Eagle is a clothing store, which makes this even crazier. LOL

    Ok, I thought it was some kind of pet shop specialising in Bald Eagles.

    Urban Outfitters (in the U.S.) is known to carry Lomography cameras and film as well, but the prices are rather high of course. Not long ago I found some Lomography-branded C-41 film in a local clearance/surplus store for $1 a pack, but they only had a couple of packs. It was made in Italy, so I'm guessing it's Ferrania (?). Terrible stuff with saturated colors and bluish shadows, kinda like a grainy, expired Ektar; but then again people using Lomo cameras and Lomo film aren't doing it for image quality, right?

    It retails for $14.50 I think. Which is close to what B&H sells it for without shipping.

    For those not in the U.S., sorry that I didn't clarify what American Eagle was.

    Lomography just rebrands cheap film (I believe their B&W is GP3) and sells it at a premium. Kodak should hire their sales manager, he seems to have the right amount of indecency for the job.
    And the sign said, "long haired freaky people need not apply"

    oh that's nothing, here in Warsaw you can get it and the cameras in shops ranging from clothing stores to pro film labs and "artist" co-ops. I've even seen it in a souvenir shop.

    Most of the film (single pack) sells for about $8/9 and the cameras $70/100 baring in mind that the minimum wage here is $2
