I am from the City of Lomography Vienna, all my life is centered around Photography.
It is the perfect camera for beginners, you can take it and just shoot. It is so easy to use and has some nice features for that price, like double exposure and the bulb function. The flash is very good too, especially with the different settings.
I won a steel La Sardina with the Nuri design. It really looks awesome.
I would load my Sardina with a black and white film and go out to the streets and shoot all the portraits that I am normally too shy to do.
The best camera is the one that's with you. Enjoy shooting it.
I'm a photographer in Taipei, Taiwan. I love to use film cameras in my life.
I was lucky to be a tester of La Sardina in Taiwan. It was my first time to become a camera tester.
The best is I took some beautiful photos at the beach by La Sardina. I really love the photos. The funniest is my friend asked me what La Sardina is. She didn't find out it is a camera.
I would take La Sardina to the street and use the 0.6-1m focussing to take many portrait of strangers by the closest range. That will be fun!
Be careful with the two step focussing, and using the Fritz the Blitz flash under weak light. After taking care for these, you can start shooting with you instinct!

Lightweight, great design, colorful, configurable flash, and its super wide angle, I love the fact that I can get closer to anything without losing the background.
When I am travelling at the beaches in Colombia, there are many kids around which live in the seaside houses, they come to me and ask surprised if this is a real camera, I tell them -yes! And immediately make a portrait, after this, they say -show me! And I explain the fact that this is not a digital camera, all is inside the film and that I should wait, they don’t get it and continue asking me to see the picture on the back of the camera. After this I always promise to come back and show them the picture (and I will do it).
I feel attracted by people with big hats, big beards, with traditional national costumes or these ones that look like they came from the past, but sometimes it turns hard to ask for a picture or they just react aggressive when they catch you photographing them. I would be shooting them, getting as closer as possible and shooting in many many different angles.
Take it anywhere and take the most out of it! It’s incredible all the things it can do + the wide angle!
I'm a film photography enthusiast, and I don't grow old.
Believe it or not, La Sardina is my very first camera ever and I'm thankful for it. I learnt how fun photography could be through this camera. It offers an infinite creativity to be explored and it is very easy to use. I strongly recommend La Sardina for beginners.
I have the El Capitan La Sardina, the first series of that camera. I brought it everywhere I go, it made the skin of my El Capitan was slowly getting scratched. Unsatisfied with my camera looking not so pretty anymore, I removed all the sticker, made it all red which is the basic colour of El Capitan. Since then, La Sardina always steals everyone attention! Every time I talk with people while holding a La Sardina in my hand, they always get distracted, curiously asking what kind of camera it is. Oh! And because of the all red colour, now I named it La Sardina El Tomate!
I would take portraits of every good looking woman that I see! Haha. But oh crap! I couldn't make a selfie!
If you got it, flaunt it ! Bring it everywhere you go , and be proud shooting with it :)
La Sardine is the most fun camera I've ever had. It's great, simple and lightweight. I love the wide-angle lens, the ability to shoot double exposures and work in B mode.
Simple, light, fantastic, Lomographic, creative.
Walking down the street and people stopping me for having a Lomographic camera -This happens to me very often in any country I visit.
Work with 400 ASA film, get as close as possible to your photographic subject and work with a flash. Viva La Sardina... Viva Lomography!!!!
I'm a passionate Lomographer and dog owner who still believes that Rock'n'Roll will save us all.
I am totally into nautical designs and fashion and fell in love with its looks instantly. It was hard for me to decide which model to buy but in the end El Capitan took my heart by storm. Combined with the easy handling and the great flash, my La Sardina has become my constant companion. Its photos have this special vintage look that fit the camera design perfectly. No matter where I use it, people are always asking me if this crazy thing is really working.
Fabulous, fishy, flashy, fantastic, friendly
I got to capture Bobby Liebling, the singer of Pentagram, doing "the eyes" for me after a great concert. I took the picture with my Sardina and it came out really fine.
Go close and take care to feed it with enough light.
I love travelling, reading, skiing on big foot, design and of course Lomography!
I absolutely love the sardine can inspired designs (I can't decide which one to buy, I think I have to get them all) and the great flash that can vary the intensity.
eye-catching, easy, compact, retro, surprising
A journalist thinking that with the half frame function of the Diana Mini, double as many pictures fit on the SD card.
Experimentation is the spice of Lomography! Don't let people open your La Sardina camera to eat up your film!
Passionate Lomographer! A fun girl who loves to take her Lomo Cameras everywhere she goes and capture everything around her!
It's a playful and easy way of taking analogue photos. Perfect for starters! And the grainy photos are just great!
Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!
I was once in Barcelona, at a tourist hot spot when I ran into a big bunch of Japanese tourists with their big, innovative digital cameras. So I went with them and managed to get right in front of a sculpture and started to take photos with my Fisheye No.2 - Suddenly a big silence fell over the place, no more digital clicks, just big eyes looking at my camera and ears listening to the sound of winding film! That was really awesome!
Just try out everything that comes to mind- Experiment!
I bought my first LC-A in 2002 in London. Since then I've become amazingly addicted to using and enjoying the super analogue feeling of Lomography cameras.
It's simple design and ability to capture great images.
Light, easy, good-looking, simple, fun
Everyday is a fun day!
Don't forget to remove the lens cap and set up the distance and shutter speeds correctly - They're the only 3 things to watch out for!
I am a Lomography addict, a mother to many lovely analogue cameras, and a frantic film collector. I am currently storing more than 800 rolls of films in my fridge and I have a tendency to invade my roommate's shelves to store my food or I will most likely starve to death.
The flash!! It looks so old school and the best thing about it is the distance setting for flash, so you can adjust the amount of light depending on the distance from your subject.
Cuteness + Retro = Awesomeness
I've always had the greatest Lomographic encounter in my double projects with my friends. I always find unexplainable funny or crazy results in them, like mephisto19 grabbing my boobs, etc...
Approach the objects of your Lomographic desire as close as possible!
