This is incredible in my humble opinion. Officially released just a
few hours ago.

1. Cheap as in $79 US cheap.
2. Undeniable mass appeal.
3. Handcranked!
4. 36 exposure 35mm film cassettes.
5. Shoots identical UltraPan8 aspect ratio = 2.8:1, i.e. 14mm x 8.5mm
frame area is created by utilizing a 35mm 2 perf pulldown resulting in
144 "UP8" frames" per 36 exposure 35mm film cassette!

Official Lomokino site -> http://microsites.lo...y.com/lomokino/, i.e

Film type : 35mm
Exposure area : 24mm x 8.5mm
Frames per. roll (36 exp.) : 144 frames
Frame rate : Approximately 3-5 frames per second
Taking Lens : 25mm
Angle of view : 54 degrees
Aperture : f/5.6, f/8, f/11 (Continuous aperture)
Shutter speed : 1/100
Film Advancing : Manual
Film Counting : Volume display
Focusing : (Normal) 1m~infinity, (Press button for) 0.6m close-up
View finding : Inverse-Galileo foldable viewfinder
Flash sync : x-sync (hot-shoe)
Tripod mount : Standard 1/4" tripod screw

Check out the sample footage -> The
implications are wonderful!

Cheers!

Interesting, but it'll have to go through telecine or DI since they got the frame lines in the wrong place relative to the perfs. It's a two perf full aperture camera, so it's really 2.66:1.

John,

Compare the LomoKino Vimeo scan with my UltraPan8 format scan. They are nearly identical 2.8:1, i.e.

LomoKino =
UltraPan8 =

From the Lomographic website, i.e. http://microsites.lo...mokino/features -> "Exposure area : 24mm x 8.5mm"

The UltraPan8 framing area is 10.52mm x 3.75mm.

Cheers!

Not sure what you mean John? Are there actual 2perf projectors out there then, or were you thinking of some kind of optical blow up?

I wonder if telecine/DI will be possible if the framelines are messed up?

Look at the images -- they got the frame line sort of where the edge of a perf is. Certainly fixable on a Spirit or most any scanner.

I think the idea on this camera is to actually have a traditional 35mm still film processor process and scan the film then you piece a video together frame by frame. With a little photoshop automation it wouldn't be very hard.

I know this threads a bit old but I figured I'd add my thoughts.

I got a Lomokino and superglued a nut to the drive shaft and run it with a cordless drill.

Here's my demo clip and howto:


anyway... this camera is fun. and considering that you can respool wastage (let alone short ends) from your other cameras makes it dirt cheap to operate... and you can be reckless with it. Want to shoot in the rain? not a problem. ... well not a serious problem...

As far as processing, it will freak out the lab... obviously cinefilm at your local photolab is a good way to get a tech to murder you and the aspect ratio has gotten me a couple "what the hell are you shooting on?" when I shot still film ... so a daylight tank and whatever chemicals fit your fancy and you can go to town... (process with caffenol if you're 'po ' like me)

In the above video I scanned the film on an old flat bed scanner and manually stabilized in kdenlive ... a motion tracker should be able to cope with it and a better film scanner should help as well. Also be aware that that film was poorly taken care of... and was god knows how old...

Presenting my friend Dwayne Hill's 35mm 2 perf Lomokino film called "Lomokino Cat". Edited by yours truly. It's all in the leather...
