Funny, but true. Lomography cameras are toy cameras. They're loved among certain photographic communities for the soft, strongly vignetted images they produce. If you're looking for sharp images get another camera.

don't let all these dudes get you down. you can have a lot of fun with lomography. there comes a certain aesthetic with them that don't always include pics of fits.

wow I can't believe that you guys are bagging on lomography.
Talking about vignetting alot of you add it to your regular photos so whats the harm? I've actually been looking into lomography for the past year and there are alot of awesome photos.

Don't listen to the diluted opinions of these guys. I think its because lomography isn't the hype is why they hate on it.

And try going to lomography.com very insightful and it'll help you find what you need.

I'm not hating on it, I'm just saying that most lomography cameras aren't the cameras to use for sleek, sharp, modern looking photos. I have a Lomo Holga and I've been having a lot of fun with it. Lomo cameras produce really cool shots, but not what everyone is looking for.

If you read his original question - "What will help the pictures come out clearer?" - I believe I answered it correctly with no real bias. Stop 'bagging' on me bra for giving the dude a correct answer. I never said that you couldn't produce some pretty unique images with it.

Saying "buy a real camera" alone doesn't answer the question of "what will help the pictures come out clearer?"

Which you posted. If you didn't mean to sound like you were bagging on it you should elaborate with a longer answer and stop with the one liners.

I hate how people get offended after because they didn't even take the time to help. And they think they had the valid answer. You just one lined it and called it a day. Get off me.

I've got a holga, oktomat and 2 "lomo-esque" cameras (vivitar ultra wide & slim and a P2201 or whatever)..

they are fun and give different types of aesthetic that you can't really get with digital (even after PS)

After experimenting with diff films i've been able to take some pretty cool pictures. I had my fun with it, but it definately is a rip off. especially to get the pics developed and price of film. Would've just bought an actual fish eye lens for my Nikkon, just thought i'd mess around with a lomo (got hella tempted at Urban). i have a D90, for a "real camera"

Make sure you cross process the film, it'll make ur photos have some funky colors and contrasts and give it the classic lomography effect

lomography is fun!! my cameras are L-CA+, fisheye, holga and an action sampler. if you want your pictures to be crispy clear i suggest using a lower iso film, like 100 iso. hope that helps.
