Travel and Street Photography Revisited
A celebration of the Lomography aesthetic, the Lomogon brings the iconic look of the legendary Lomo LC-A camera to SLRs and mirrorless cameras. Expect the bold contrast, sweet saturation, and moody vignetting that you love – with stunning optic quality, cutting-edge precision and higher than ever resolution. And with a 32 mm focal length – close to the 40 mm focal length of the human eye – the Lomogon lets you widen your world and create images that invoke the nostalgic feeling of being “really there”.
Featuring a Sleek and Fuss-Free Aperture Mechanism
The Lomogon is perfect for spontaneous shooting. Its vintage dial-styled aperture mechanism lets you switch through apertures – from f/2.5 to f/11 – with an intuitive click-and-stop feeling. Designed for the super speedy, this dial-styled mechanism allows you to shoot fully manually. What’s more, its perfectly circular aperture produces beautiful, bold bokeh.
A Carefully Crafted, Beautifully Designed Object
The Lomogon was developed together with the illustrious Russian manufacturer Zenit and assembled with the finest glass optics in a small manufactory in Central China. The gold brass design is a nod to billowing sails, caravels, and golden compasses; the sleek black design lets you blend into your new adventure. The Lomogon will be available in Canon EF and Nikon F mounts and compatible with numerous other bodies with adaptors
available from Lomography.
Shaped by Round-The-World Adventures
From the beaches of Thailand to the fjords of Iceland, the Lomogon has been tested by photographers all over the globe and crafted to deliver beautiful stills on every terrain. But the Lomogon is by no means just for photographers –with a wide-angle focal length that lets you get more of
your background in focus, it’s perfect for shooting motion pictures. Adopted by videographers to create everything from music videos to documentaries, you can even experiment with the aperture dial while filming to create a completely distinctive aesthetic.

WHAT IS LOMOGRAPHY?
Established in 1992 by a group of footloose Viennese students, the Lomographic Society International is photography’s wild child. Fuelled by fiery passion and burning curiosity, we blasted off our free-spirited movement when we stumbled across the Lomo LC-A –the most popular Russian camera of the 1980s, now famed for its quirky aesthetic. We wasted no time at all and created our Ten Golden Rules, and we’ve dutifully followed them ever since. Today – with over 1 million creative members – Lomography is a license to let loose; an invitation to ignite your inspiration, and a platform to catapult your shots around the globe. Whether you’re a
complete novice or a seasoned pro, we believe that you harness the power to create something incredible. From crazy color-shifting film to bespoke Art Lenses, innovative instants to classic analogue cameras we’re dedicated
to designing and producing all the photographic tools you need.
WHO ARE LOMOGRAPHERS?
Lomographers are anyone and everyone with a passion for photography, and a hunger for pushing the boundaries. Keen to leave no memory uncaptured, no story untold and no film unexposed, the Lomography community have uploaded over 15 million photos over the last 20 years – the largest online archive of analogue and experimental photography in the world. Lomographers use innovative photography tools to stretch their imagination, learn new tricks at workshops, enter their favorite shots into Lomography competitions, and read photography interviews and creative tips in the Lomography magazine. They dance like there’s no tomorrow at parties, and attend countless exhibitions hosted in Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide. Their thirst to travel, experiment, make mistakes, share and experience LIFE in all its beautiful, bizarre and bewildering glory is what keeps Lomographers restless on this little planet we call Earth.
