Each lens in the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit features a mechanical shutter and filter slot to allow you to take multiple exposures and photos with extremely exciting effects using Micro 4/3 cameras. There are three lenses included in the kit - A fisheye lens for fantastic 160° shots, a wide-angle 12mm lens and standard 24mm lens.

Using Your Lomography Experimental Lens Kit As A Normal Mirrorless Lens

  1. Push the T-Shutter Lever all the way down to hold the in-lens shutter open.
  2. Focus your photo using the LCD display or electronic viewfinder by turning the lens focusing ring. The magnifying function on your Micro 4/3 camera may help for precise focusing.
  3. Compose your photo and shoot.

Operating The Lens Shutter For Creative Photography

The Lomography Experimental Lens Kit in-lens shutter allows you to shoot photos in a totally different way than just using the built-in camera shutter. You can use a wide range of creative photographic techniques such as shooting real overlapping multiple exposures and continuous shots on a single frame.

Using The In-lens N/B Shutter With Your Micro 4/3 Camera

  1. Set the T-shutter lever on your lens to the open position
  2. Set your Micro 4/3 camera to 'Bulb' (B shutter) mode. If there is no Bulb mode on your camera, you can instead select a long exposure speed manually (for example 2 or 3 seconds)
  3. Set your lens shutter to either N or B depending on your shooting conditions
  4. Focus and compose your photo
  5. Close the lens-shutter by switching the T-shutter lever
  6. Fire the camera shutter (in B mode) and hold it open so your camera is ready to capture your photo.
  7. Fire the lens shutter with your other hand to take the picture.
  8. Release the camera shutter to finish your photo.

To take multiple exposures with your Lomography Experimental Lens and Micro 4/3 camera, all you need to do is press the lens shutter twice or more during the time your camera shutter is open. The more times you press the lens shutter during the time your camera shutter is open, the more exposures you’ll get!

Using The Color Filters

There is a filter slot behind the lens for you to insert different color filters for creative photography. All you need to do is insert a color gel and you’ll get different color effects!

Troubleshooting Questions

Q. I attached the lens to my camera, but I only see a blank screen on my camera LCD screen

A. You may have forgotten to open the in-lens shutter. Set the T-shutter lever to 'open' and then you can see what you shoot from the camera LCD screen.

Q. I fired the lens shutter several times but I got no photo in my camera!

A. You also need to fire the camera shutter in Bulb/long exposure mode for your camera to be ready to capture images from the analogue shutter. Please refer to the instruction section ‘Using The In-lens N/B Shutter With Your Micro 4/3 Camera’ for details on how to do this.
