The ONDU 135 Pocket Pinhole camera is the baby of the ONDU Pinhole Camera line

Slovenia-based designer and engineer Elvis Halilović (aka ONDU) is a pinhole photography enthusiast who felt there was a relative absence of appealing durable pinhole cameras on the market, and so set to work creating his own. This resulted in a range of six ONDU Pinhole Cameras, each of which differs in size, price, and film format.  Read More

The onboard battery of the Sun and Cloud camera from Superheadz can be charged via USB, a ...

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. Its battery can be juiced up via USB, but the palm-sized snapper offers users greener charging options in the shape of a PV panel on top and a hand crank on the side.  Read More

The DSLR Wheel of Filters can be used on Canon or Nikon cameras

Some people think photography is about capturing images which are perfectly composed, tack-sharp, distortion-free and have amazingly life-like colors. If you're one of them, look away now! The DSLR Wheel of Filters is a plastic lens and wheel attachment which lets photographers use their DSLR to take decidedly lo-fi and filtered snaps which look like they've come from a toy camera.  Read More

The Kaleidoloop by Critter and Guitari is a lo-fi sound collector

The Kaleidoloop is a digital audio recorder which is about as far removed from devices like the high-tech compact Olympus LS-100 as it's possible to get – it's an unashamedly lo-fi sound collector, housed in a large aluminum and wood enclosure.  Read More

Photojojo has just added SLR Magic's 35mm f1.4 manual focus toy lens for Olympus and Panas...

Strange though it may seem, despite manufacturers going to great lengths to provide the very best in image quality, there are quite a number of snappers who long for the kind of warm and fuzzy (and often accidental) creations from the good old days of 35mm film cameras. Olympus or Panasonic Micro Four Thirds camera owners looking for a cheaper alternative to the kind of soft edging and background blur effects offered by the likes of Lens Baby might well be interested in SLR Magic's 35mm f1.4 toy Micro Four Thirds camera lens.  Read More

"Lo-fi" photography using film cameras such as Holga has made something of a comeback in recent times, with creative types embracing the ability to do things like snapping double exposures. The pocket-sized, 3.2-megapixel Double Exposure Digi Cam offers a way to try out this effect without the use of image editing software or a trip to the dark-room.  Read More

The smiling face of TIM - the Twin Image Maker 35mm 3D camera

Lo-fi photography focuses on creative experiments with the use of inexpensive film cameras - like the Holga Twin Image Maker (TIM). This US$60 camera features double lenses to shoot either 3D images or half frames, allows for multiple exposure of a single frame and comes with a detachable flash with color filters.  Read More

Lomography has unveiled a new addition to its LC-A range of 35mm film analog cameras, the ...

In spite of the overwhelming shift towards digital photography, 35 mm film cameras still have their staunch supporters. 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. The latest model comes with a newly-developed ultra-wide-angle lens that sits on the very border of fish-eye and gives users a choice of half-frame, full-frame and square 35 mm photo formats ... and it's also very expensive.  Read More

The Lomography Spinner 360-degree camera

Who said film photography was dead? Definitely not Lomography, whose Lomography Spinner 360-degree camera lets shutterbugs take a full 360-degree photo with a flick of the wrist. The camera uses standard 35mm film to capture super-wide-angle images that are four times longer than standard landscape pictures, with a standard 36-exposure roll capable of capturing around eight shots.  Read More
