Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over-saturated colours, off-kilter exposure, blurring, “happy accidents,” and alternative film processing are often considered part of the ‘Lomographic Technique’. Users are encouraged to take a light-hearted approach to their photography, and use these techniques to document everyday life.

The models shown today were the Pop 9 camera which produces 9 identical images on one print and the Fisheye 2 camera which has a 170 degree wide angle view and barrel distortion.

Price: Pop 9, $125. Fisheye 2, $225
