Lomography MC100BN Overview

  • 1Description

Making movies actually can be a pleasure, and you don't have to create your own personal deficit crisis--say hello to the LomoKino 35mm Film Camera from Lomography. The low-tech, high-fun LomoKino camera uses 35mm film to produce short films (using actual film, not video).

The LomoKino is a hand-crank-driven camera, so you control the frame rate, up to 3-5 frames per second. If you turn the crank very, very slowly, you’ll get a jagged, stop-motion effect; turn it fast and you’ll get a smoother, more fluid-looking movie. Each 36-frame roll of 35mm film gives you 144 movie frames (exposure area: 24mm x 8.5mm), with volume display to tell you how much film you have left. The focal length of the lens is 25mm--you don't have to focus the camera if your subject is more than 3.28' away. If it's closer than that, you can use the close-up button to focus as close as 2'.

There's a hot shoe on the LomoKino, so you can use flash (not included) for stop-action movies, and the standard 1/4" tripod mount screw means you can mount the LomoKino to a tripod (not included) for rock-solid images when you want them. The continuous aperture gives you flexibility to adjust your exposure precisely between f/5.6 and f/11. With LomoKino, making a unique, analog film is just as much fun as watching one.

Use Any Kind of 35mm Film
Load the LomoKino with any kind of 35mm film that takes your fancy--color negative, slide, black and white--the choice is yours.
Fast Focusing
Shooting a subject over 1m away? You don't have to do a thing to focus. Want to shoot closer than 3.28' (1m)? Just hold down the close-up button on the front of the camera and you can focus as close as 1.96' (0.6m).
Easy Aperture Controls
The LomoKino has continuous aperture settings from f/5.6 to f/11 - There is no step between each aperture, so you can effortlessly adjust the aperture setting at any time during shooting.
Simple Shooting
Shooting a movie with the LomoKino is easy - After you've loaded your film, just rotate the advancing crank to start making your movie - Rotate the crank slowly for a low frame rate or fast for a higher frame rate - With the LomoKino you can shoot up to 3-5 frames per second at full speed!
Check Your Movie Progress
Use the handy volume display on the LomoKino to see how much film you have left on the roll--when the red flag on top of the camera pops up, the show's over folks.
Grab a Tripod
Want to look like a true analogue Director when shooting your LomoKino movies? Attach the camera to a tripod and get ready for some steady Lomographic movie action.
Look Through the Viewfinder (If You Want To)
Use the LomoKino viewfinder to get an idea of what you are shooting - Or just ignore it and shoot from the hip.
Light Up Your Movie
Use the hot-shoe mount on the top of the LomoKino to attach your favorite Lomography flashes.

    Can you develop this film in a dark room?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This camera uses standard 35mm film. You can use any standard color or black and white film and develop it in an appropriate dark room.

    If the camera can only shoot 144 frames per roll, does that mean for each 6 seconds (standard 24fps) video, we have to switch a new roll?
    Asked by: Chen X.
    The film is actually around 4-6 fps max. It's hand cranked so there's no way you get 24fps. A film roll actually gives about 30 seconds of film. Think of it more like an old silent movie type rate. I got an 8 scecond sequence from 22 frames as an example.

    I recently bought this and the film is struggling to go around properly without tearing and the lever doesn't turn as using the camera. Please help?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Hey, I was there before. I don't think we need to attach the film much on the lever. I would say just a little bit. You might feel it's gonna loose at any minute. Give it a shot. Good luck!
