True, you could achieve the aim of these cameras through any digital camera and photo-editing software, but lookit! They’re all colourful! And almost retro, I always get a shock whenever I see a store selling disposable cameras, and an unwelcome flashback to family holidays in the early 90s. Shudder These cameras from Lomolitos are apparently ‘a true revolution in Lomography’, which, according to Wikipedia, ’emphasizes casual, snapshot photography’, where ‘accidents such as over-saturated colors, lens artifacts, and exposure defects are rehabilitated to produce swirly, abstract effects – a trait emphasized by practitioners’. This would explain why these cameras come with a single colour filter, either red, yellow, green or blue, which can be switched on and off. If you’re wondering what the photos look like using the coloured flash feature, take a peek under the cut for some examples, or pick them up for just €15 each from Colette in Paris, otherwise $10 in the US.
