A few months ago, I randomly joined the Ella Lama and Lomography Lomo’Instant collaboration giveaway and to make the long story short…I WON!!!
Here’s my winning answer:
I always say “Bless to be blessed!” and winning this giveaway proves how God can randomly reward you. I believe that this is God’s way of telling me that I’m doing a great job with my passion projects, Share Movement and Shop and Share (plus my church work!) and His way of encouraging me to just keep up the good work and pursue growth.
Another bonus was having my Lomo’Instant customized by one of my favorite artists, Ella Lama!
Spot my life verse (John 15:5) Nothing without God.
Anyway, here’s my quick unboxing blog. Enjoy!
The camera itself has a built-in 27mm wide lens.
On the top right corner you’ll see the viewfinder, aperture scroll or the exposure compensation dial, light sensor, flash and the self portrait-mirror (aka selfie-mirror).
On the upper left corner you’ll see the shutter release button.
On the left side you’ll see the MX switch button (multiple exposure), the focusing zone setting, the tripod thread and the battery door.
On the right side, you’ll see the film ejection slot.
At the back, you’ll see the yellow mark (guide for the film), back door lock, camera back door, and film chamber (inside).
And at the bottom, you’ll see the shooting mode switch, shutter speed switch and a quick overview of what the icons stand for.
WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX?
When you open the box, you’ll quickly see the three extra lenses which is AWESOME!! (You can buy it without these lenses)
Fisheye Lens 170°, Portrait Lens 35mm and Close-up Lens (Macro) 10-15cm.
Then you’ll see manuals with around 10 different languages!
These 2 small boxes consists of…
Color filter gels that you can attach to your flash for extra color splash.
These amazing samples of what you can do with your camera and lenses!
At the back they have detailed instructions of what kind of settings you need. You can do multiple exposure, macro shots, fisheye, long-exposure shots!
KIND OF FILM
You can use the Fujifilm Instax Mini (Calling card size) film. Which you can buy online or at the mall.
I’m still trying to figure out each setting soooo I’ll be posting a review, some tips, and a tutorial soon! For now, I want to thank Lomography Philippines for giving me this wonderful treat and, of course, Ella Lama for this awesome customized camera. You made it extra special! ❤
