Lomo Processing Equipment
Lomography refers to analog photography that is made by utilizing the LOMO LC-A and derivative cameras, which were originally created in the Soviet Union and are now under the trademark of Lomographische AG, located in Austria. The photos produced by these cameras are prized by users for their unique style. This product category provides equipment to support the processing of film used in lomography.What camera, film, and lens types are available?
The original lomography concept camera was the LOMO LC-A, which was manufactured in the 1980s by the former Soviet Union. Since then, over a dozen cameras have been marketed under the Lomographische AG trademark. Examples include the Diana F, an inexpensive toy camera with a plastic lens that views soft-focus photos; the Konstruktor, a build-it-yourself 35mm SLR camera; and many instant-developing photo versions.
Lomography cameras use film in many formats. Some cameras use a fixed lens, while others have a detachable lens. Lens systems provide for wide-angle views and artistic effects such as the simulation of daguerreotype photography.What accessories are available for lomo photography?
Lomography cameras use analog technology that requires darkroom techniques involving the use of chemicals. Analog darkroom accessories are required to create the photos in lomography styles.
Lomography movie cameras such as the LomoKino can produce movies with specialized effects. As lomography involves analog photography, this product category provides devices for developing in the formats used by lomography.
The UPB-1 is a processing tank used for the development of lomography movies. The UPB-1 contains a spiral wheel to which the film reel is attached. The spiral design is necessary because movie reels can be meters in length, and the film must be kept from touching itself as it is wound around the axis. Depending on the type of film used, the tank spiral can accommodate one or two reels. Once the reel is in place on the spiral, the spiral is inserted into the container with chemicals, and the lid is placed on top.
As the admittance of light would spoil the development process, darkroom protocols must be followed. The UPB-1 is designed so that once it is sealed, no light can be admitted inside.
The UPB-1 can use 8mm, 16mm, and 35mm formats. This product category offers new and used processing tanks. Older types are often made of Bakelite, which is a type of plastic.What other types of equipment are available to support lomography?
This product category includes support for lomography development and editing. For example, film-splicing press tables are offered here. Film splicing refers to the cutting and reattaching of film while editing.
