So you'd like to buy your first Lomography snap-shooter. Congratulations! Let us take you through a few of the key questions to think about:
"Which kind of film do I want to use?"
Different Lomography cameras shoot different kinds of films. Some cameras shoot 35mm film; some shoot 110, and some shoot 120 (also called medium format) film. 35mm film comes in canisters and produces rectangular photos; it's the kind of film you can pick up and develop in your local supermarket. You'll also notice that 35mm film has little perforations along the edge which are called sprocket-holes. In contrast, 120 film is larger and generally produces more detailed shots - 120 film doesn't have sprocket-holes. 110 film is used with pocket cameras and can also be conveniently processed in most photo labs.
"What kind of photos do I want to shoot?"
You'll notice that each Lomography has something special about it. The Spinner 360° produces 360° panoramic photos. The LC-Wide takes ultra-wide photos and gives you the choice of 3 shooting formats. The Sprocket Rocket exposes the sprocket holes on each photo. The Supersampler shoots 4 snaps on each 35mm print. The Fisheye Baby allows you to capture fun, fisheye photos in a smaller, more portable format. Take a look at each camera's features and pick the effect that fits you! Take a look at some Ideas by Photo to see the kind of shots you can produce with each camera.
