p.1 #1 · Lomo: how long can it last?


Do you think Lomo is going to survive much longer?

Lomo's selling point is that quirky analogue look that you get from film.

But now there are plenty of apps that instantly give you the same sort of look to your iPhone pix -- and no hassle about buying film or finding someone to process it.

After Kodak, Lomo?

If anything I'd say these apps bring the "look" to a wider audience, who may want to find out about its origins and then create it in the traditional way. So I think as a result there will be /more/ people using Lomo, at least for a short period of time each...

indeed, the experience of using a film camera is quite different than using an emulator. much like vinyl it will survive for a while amongst people who value that experience (and hipsters ).

Film camera crowd != Lomo crowd.

The first crowd cares about a certain look, the process and genuinely love photography, the second crowd cares about accessorizing their PBR with a pretty camera while polishing off their wayfarers..

The death of film is what is going to do away with Lomo, not fake iPhone Lomo knock offs.

Indeed because members of BOTH groups can be quite annoyingly elitist
