Key Features
  • Use Any Kind of 35mm Film
  • Fast Focusing
  • Easy Aperture Controls
  • Simple, Hand-Cranked Frame Rate Control
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.

Lomography LomoKino Reviews

Excited to see what my son does with his Lomokino!

My son has recently had some return interest in working with film again which has also propelled mine. I learned of Lomography through him and when I saw this sort of low-fi Super 8 like manual film camera I thought he would love it and do something creative with it! I have in turn purchased another Lomo camera for myself. The Lomokino was received timely and well packed!

It was fun... for two days until it broke !

So I will start from the beginning, At first the camera seemed fine the crank moved easily and the shutter snapped clearly. The images from the first roll were more or less as expected. But by the second roll the red indicator stoped working and upon developing the film I noticed that some of the images were overlapping each other, as can be seen from the enclosed examples. As time went on, the camera continued to deteriorate and the cranking seemed to get stiffer and stiffer with each turn. In addition to all this, the shutter, unlike what B&H claimed, did not have a fixed speed and all the images were differently exposed. The tenth roll came back all blank except for one image at the very end. Overall, this was very disappointing experience and a waste of film and money !

what type of projecter should i use to show the movies?
Asked by: james
You will need a 35mm film projector. Those are very hard to find and very rare. When you do find them they are very expensive unfortunately. Usually you need to scan the film to a computer in order to see the movie.

Asked by: james
The camera is crank 35mm moving film camera. It does not record sound. If you are referring to the sound the camera might make while recording, it is very minimal.

question

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.

question

Is this camera used for making movies?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, but on 35mm film that is meant for photography.You hand crank to shoot it and then send it in to get it transferred to a movie or scan it yourself and put it together.

question

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!
