THE GOLD SPECIAL EDITION
• Shiny & Golden: Diana F+, Diana Mini and Fisheye 2 dangling from gold chains in a posh style
• Size Does Not Matter: the Diana sisters enthuse with matching goldenness
• A Twinkling Star Is Born: Fisheye 2 rocks with stunning perspectives
SHINY & GOLDEN
Not everything that glitters is gold. This time the saying is not true. Our three beloved camera models Diana F+, Diana Mini and Fisheye 2 have gone through a shiny make-over by Mister Goldfinger himself. Dangling from a bling bling gold chain, they are ready to shine. Still enthusing with unique virtues, they now cause a stir with their glamorous new look. Dangling on a golden chain in your hand, the cameras of the Gold Edition are the must-have accessory for hip parties and special occasions.
SIZE DOES NOT MATTER
But as life shows, outward appearance is not the only important thing in life. Moreover the
Gold Edition convinces with its outstanding intrinsic values of producing extraordinary photos.
Wearing the same golden and white dress, the tiny Diana Mini doesn’t need to be afraid of a
comparison with her bigger sister: While the Diana F+ convinces with its dreamy, radiant and lofi
images, the Youngster with the half-frame format knows how to fascinate in her own
A TWINKLING STAR IS BORN
The golden dress is finally the suitable look for this star. The Fisheye 2 is already well-known
and loved for its unique perspectives through the built-in fisheye lens. Especially these two
factors make the Gold Edition a real treasure: Colorful and remarkable in their perspectives,
these cameras capture your precious memories in stunning and unique pictures while blinging
away in goldenness.

The Lomographic Society Proudly Presents
The LomoKino - Super 35 Movie Maker
Lomography in Motion: Take the next step in Lomography with the first camera that makes your Lomographs move on any kind of 35mm film
Unique Art: Become the director of your very own LomoMovies and produce unique and precious pieces of movie art by simply winding a crank

Lomography in Motion
How great it must have been to witness the first pictures as they started to move or to see the Lumiere brothers amazing the crowds with their very first short films. After over 200 years of movie making, million-dollar-special-effects, big scale film studios and endless Hollywood dramas, we give you the chance to return back to the roots of movie making and witness the very first steps of moving Lomography. The LomoKino allows you to become a director yourself and capture Lomographic movies on 35 mm film of any kind: no sound, no special effects, no post production – just simple Lomography in motion.
To become a true LomoMovie director, just simply wind the crank of the magic box to capture 144 shots on one roll of 35 mm film - which makes 36 to 48 seconds of LomoMovie. You can use any kind of 35 mm film for different effects: Slide film, colour negative, redscale or B/W. After developing the film, spool it into the specially developed LomoKinoScope and watch your Lomographs moving over and over again. What sounds very simple produces a unique piece of art which can either stay in your hands only or can be given as a special present to somebody who really deserves it. Show your sweetheart how fast your heart is really pounding or capture a flying birthday cake for your grandma who will feel catapulted back in time.
A wise man once said “form follows function” – naaaah – we like to say “form follows motion” and that’s why we designed this camera to become a true gadget. Its irresistible design takes you straight back into the time when people left the audience screaming because a locomotive was speeding towards them on a movie screen and the movies were still a true business without special effects. It comes in a package either alone or with the LomoKinoScope, one film canister and a marvelous book. Its creative possibilities are so diverse that not even we can tell the limits. It’s up to you, gadget lovers, to take this baby in your hands and explore what movies used to be like the Lomographic way!
Unlike the very first filmmakers we can call a powerful tool our own: the internet! Linking the simple technology of the LomoKino with our website, enables you to upload, watch and share your own LomoMovies. To give you a taste of the special LomoKino aesthetics and the sheer endless creative possibilities, we asked filmmakers from around the globe to create their own LomoMovies. Visit our website to get some inspiration and start shooting your first LomoMovie!

· A Brand New Website All About Sprocket Holes
· Aimed at newcomers to analogue photography
· Website designed in the style of a roll of 35mm film
· Information on what sprocket holes are and how to expose them with Lomography Cameras
Sprocket holes are the little square holes which run along the top and bottom of a 35mm film. They play a functional role in analogue photography because they hook onto your camera’s winder when you load the film – The little teeth of a film camera hook into these holes and transport the film to the next frame. Sprocket-holes are unique to 35mm analogue photography. Neither 120 medium format films nor any digital format features sprocket-holes.
Lomography Sprocket Rocket
The world’s first wide-angle camera dedicated entirely to joys of sprocket-hole photography.
Capture 360° panoramas, sprocket holes and all!
Diana F+ with Diana F+ 35mm back
The Diana’s standard format is 120 – But use the Diana F+ 35mm back and the camera becomes a sprocket fuelled wonder.
The Lubitel 166+ has the ability to shoot lovely 120 square images or 35mm panoramic portraits which include the sprocket holes.
