Lomography has been at the forefront of the analogue revolution for decades. Starting in 1992 with some Viennese students falling in love with the aesthetic of a particular Soviet camera (the iconic LC-A) - they founded a movement and a company that would introduce a new generation to the joys of plastic cameras and experiemental film. Periodically innovating new cameras for existing formats - and sometimes bringing back formats specially for their cameras! - they are vibrant and creative

As a follow up to my previous review, I've been investigating pushing Orca to shoot at higher ISO settings. On my Pentax 110 Auto I'm limited to ISO 100 or 400, so I chopped the speed indicator on the cartridge in half (auto sets to ISO 400) and shot some frames to see what happened. I couldn't adjust the exposure, so just took pictures as normal. I took an educated guess at 10 minutes and 45 seconds in Infosol 3 (20C) to take account of the underexposure and crossed my fingers. The results were good - contrast and grain up as would be expected, but very acceptable results. See sample image, which has been scanned and inverted, but is otherwise untouched. I think that I ran the developer for a little too long - next time maybe 10 minutes 15 seconds. It's easy to do and certainly extends what you can do with Orca.
I've returned to film after 25 years and wanted to travel light. I shot the Orca in a Pentax 110 SLR then developed in Ifosol 3 with a modded Paterson spiral tank. The results are excellent for the first roll through - tone and grain very good for such a small format. For me it's an all-rounder because I want to shoot B&W in a 110 - it's the only option, but a good 'un. Like one of the other reviewers, I take the precaution of covering the film window with black insulation tape on my Pentax and a Minolta 110 SLR Mk 1. You can just peel it back if you want to check where you are up to and no artifacts on the negs yet. The motorbike image was scanned from the negative and then manipulated in GIMP (Old Photo effect). Do I like it? Yep, I've just ordered more :-)
Great All-Rounder, travel, beginners
Great black and white color, also easy to use. I recommend for beginners.
I know nothing about film, my brother pointed me in the direction of this website for his birthday present. Easy to order, quick delivery, good communication throughout and great quality products. He’s now asked for more for Christmas!
