Viva Lomolitos, for the Fun of It!

Lomolitos Disposable Cameras

If you know how to enjoy quirky photography, the Lomolito single use camera from Lomo is a fun camera. It’s essentially a disposable camera pre-loaded with a 24-shot roll of film; the fun part is its nutty colored flash. You have a choice of colored gels over them: green, red, yellow or blue.

Why would you want a color cast on your photos? There’s a fun way to look at it, and if you’re the creative type perhaps you can come up with some imaginative shots with this $10 camera. Remember, the color cast reaches only as far as its tiny flash can cover, usually up to five or six feet; it can’t color the distant background.

If you need straight neutral white flash there’s a switch to move the colored gel out of the way, but that would be spoiling the fun, no?
