Where to buy...

My cousin has loads of these digital SLR cameras (he buys and sells regularly on ebay), now I just need to convince him to buy a tablet (to replace the luminous table); my phablet could do it otherwise.

I just have to wait for my rudimentary cameras to be able to take bad pictures that look artsy.:D
Good thinking! Remember - light leaks are crucial for lomography, so just scrape off that sealing foam for starters, and use a bit of sandpaper on the edges of the lens so you get some extra vignetting and bokeh :D

The Recesky is on its way, I'll be experimenting with it first, but it seems enough lomo-friendly as it is. On the other hand, I've placed a bid on a Pentax with a fixed-focus lens (when I'll be tired of the flimsy Recesky); I would like to put my hands on an Olympus Trip 35 or EE, but my budget (£10) is too short, an Ilford Sportsman could be a good alternative (seems easy to find on Ebay, like vintage Halenas).

7dayshop.com sell a range of 35mm film. I have never bought film from them, but have used them many times for other items.

@Cristobal - there are Trip 35s on ebay for not too much more than your budget. I'm sure you will find one. Sorry, but I would like to hang onto mine. Good luck, and I look forward to seeing some images from your Recesky.

I've been using an auction snipe service, we'll see the results in a few hours.

OK, so I did not win an Olympus Trip 35 or EE, most are sold for £25 or more. Nevertheless, I won a Pentax, maybe too good for lomography for a fiver:



Not a beautiful vintage camera, but an ugly 80's one. I chose it after reading this review:

My alternate choice would likely have been an Ilford Sportsman (German camera) or a vintage Halina.
