By - March 25, 2013 12 Pictures
Though the increasingly competent cameras in smartphones are making the digital compact all-but obsolete, there is still a healthy market for novelties like the Digi Cam and Digital Harinezumi 2++. Another decidedly lo-fi cutie from the same product stable is the Sun and Cloud "self-generating" pocket camera.

Lomography analog film cameras came about when a couple of Austrian students stumbled across a Russian LOMO LC-A film camera in the early 1990s. They offer an experimental approach to shooting 35 mm film with effects like fisheye and 360 degree panorama.
