The Lomography La Sardina Marathon Camera takes you on a fun-filled adventure through that land that time forgot: analogue photography. Doing what Lomography does best, the La Sardina Marathon is a "toy camera" that not only shoots 35mm film, but captures images with all the artistic light leaks that you've come to expect. Additionally, it allows for multiple and long exposures, has a standard tripod mount, and a shutter release lock. Should you long for flash, the camera features a La Sardina micro contact for connecting an optional Fritz the Blitz flash!

La Sardina Features
  • Mind-blowing wide-angle lens
  • Rewind dial and MX switch that make multiple exposures easier than ever before!
  • Film cartridge window on the rear of the camera - to see what film you're shooting
  • Easy-to-use focusing with two simple settings
  • Bulb setting for night-time and long-exposure experimentation
  • Screw-in cable release option
  • Incredible collection of unique La Sardina editions - a design for every mood and occasion
Achieving the Perfect Settings
Remember that your La Sardina is locked and loaded with a truly mind-blowing wide-angle lens! That means it embraces the "5th Golden Rule of Lomography" to the max - "Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible!" Forget about the viewfinder and get as close as possible. And then get even closer! Are you doing it? Okay. We'll be watching to make sure
Getting Ready to Shoot
So you've loaded the film and you're ready to start shooting? Well the first thing to do is make sure your camera is ready to snap up your shots. If the lens barrel is pressed against the camera's body, hold it and pull it away from the camera. Now twist it to the left (if you are looking at the front of the camera) until you feel it lock. Your La Sardina is now locked, loaded and ready for action!
Your La Sardina camera is super-easy to use and that's why it comes with fitted with just two simple focusing settings. These are located on the lens ring and you should remember to alter this depending on how close or far away your subject is.

0.6-1m - If whatever you're taking a picture of is between 0.6m and 1m (i.e. close-up) then just be sure that the camera is set to this setting. Just make sure the lens ring is turned to the right position (from the front of the camera.)

1m-Infinity - If your Lomographic subject is at least 1m or further away, then turn the lens ring to the left to make use of this focusing setting

Shutter Settings
The La Sardina comes complete with a B or 'Bulb' setting which lets you decide how long you want to keep the shutter open and how much light gets in to the camera. To change the shutter settings, you just need to move the small switch that's located on the top of the camera, in front of the viewfinder.

If you take a quick look just in front of the viewfinder, you will see a small switch marked B/N/MX. You can choose between N (Normal) and B (Bulb) mode by simply flicking the switch left or right.

You should use the N mode when you are shooting in sunny conditions. N stands for "Normal, 1/100 second".

You should use the B mode when you are shooting indoors or in situations where the light is not so great. B stands for "Bulb Shutter", and in this mode the shutter will stay open as long as you hold down the shutter release button

    Comments about Lomography La Sardina Marathon Camera:

    I take this everywhere and snap whatever! You really can't go wrong. Its a fun and simple camera. The wide angle lens and double exposures work well. I do have trouble remembering to change the settings from close up to landscape though. Extending the lens is awkward and sometimes scrapes the heck out of my knuckle. and low lighting indoors is not good. Otherwise, no complaints. Used regular kodak 400 film and looked great.
