Story

The LomoKino is the only camera in our experimental arsenal that allows you to create short analogue movies on 35 mm film. You can shoot up to 30 seconds of silent footage per roll. It’s super compact, easy to use and bursting with retro analogue appeal.

Movie buffs among you will know that movies are made at a measurement of frames per second. The LomoKino shoots 4 frames per single frame of 35 mm film allowing the LomoKino to run at 3–5 frames per second. Being able to shoot multiple frames on a single frame of 35 mm means the movie will play back at the correct pace. So go wild and bring your Lomographic stills to life!

A Brief History of 35 mm Filmmaking

In 1892, legendary inventors Thomas Edison and William Kennedy Dickson were the first to use 35 mm film to shoot movies on their early analogue movie cameras. Over the years, all kinds of formats appeared and disappeared, but it was 35 mm that stood the test of time and became the standard film format for shooting motion pictures.

It was only later that people began to experiment with using 35 mm film in still photography cameras. It was the German optical engineer, Oskar Barnack, who would eventually be credited with popularizing the format for still photography when he invented the first of the legendary Leica 35 mm cameras. Now, 35 mm film is considered the standard film format for still photography worldwide.

The LomoKino has brought 35 mm film story full circle. When you load a fresh roll of 35 mm film into your LomoKino, you are unlocking its original movie–making potential and following in the footsteps of our greatest filmmakers past and present.
