(LC-A hand grip) Cable release for the classics

Filed under: lomo — tofunao @ 10:10 pm

There’s no many choices for doing a good long exposure with a Lc-a. Probably build a homemade cable release by yourself, or get a Lc-a+ with the new  features..

Seems from now on, the LC-A + users are not the only who can enjoy those night long exposures.

This cute thing, “hand made in south Korea” and super easy to attach in your classic Lomo Lc-a is the new easiest solution i could find. And since the double exposure button can be easely imitated with the one in the Lc-a bottom, there’s probably no need anymore for missing that expensive Lc-a+. Eureka!

(Build your own [35]camera kits)

Filed under: DIY — tofunao @ 1:46 pm

Everybody is getting money building toycameras in china and selling them overpriced in the west (i want too). I once asked an industrial designer whats the way for taking a camera out in the market. He said something like build your model or prototype as good as you c an, take it to a enginner to check and sign your product, get tones and tones of money and ask some china plant to produce it (i guess it must be a bit more difficult than that).

Whatever, I found the best way to start is this camera kits for kids. Most of them produced by Elenco inc, popular for Radio and electronic learning kits. So from now on, you can learn how to produce those overpriced cameras, for just about 20$. Then build your own design and conquer the world with it.. be afraid lomography.

(4×5 homemade pinhole)

Filed under: Uncategorized — tofunao @ 7:49 pm

Oki not built by me, but my father.

i like the first results, perhaps too much vignetting, i guess for the low focal lenght used (about 20mm). I think i should upgrade with some more space. Don’t expect a how to guide, since just my father could answer and i’m not into build-thingies stuff. But go for a wooden box with similar focal lengh and a pinhole about 0,20 and i guess u’ll get the same.

This is how it looks with polaroid 59 film (a 545 back holder was attached this time).
