lomokino super 35mm video camera

‘lomokino super 35’ analogue video camera

lomography has just released the ‘lomokino super 35‘, an analogue ‘moviemaker’ that mimics the low frame rates and noisy image quality of early film cameras. battery-free and powered by handcrank, the device shoots 144 images over the course of 60 seconds (2.4 fps). it accepts any 35mm film cartridge, displaying the amount of film remaining on a built-in display and popping a red flag up on top of the camera when there is none remaining. the camera automatically keeps subjects beyond one meter away in focus, while a ‘close-up button’ lets the device focus on subjects as close as 0.6-meters. step-less aperture stops from f/5.6 to f/11 permit users to easily adjust the setting even during shooting. the ‘lomokino’ contains standard tripod and hot-shoe mounts.

the ‘lomokinoscope’ permits users to view their films in analogue format by loading the developed, uncut film rolls directly into the device, rotating the viewing crank, and watching the frames stream by. the film can also be scanned, uploaded to computer, and converted to digital files.

the camera sells for 79 USD (65 euro), while a package kit containing the ‘lomokino’ and ‘lomokinoscope’ retails for 99 USD (89 euro).
