Shooting on film might actually be fun

November 6, 2011

I’m the first person to scream in happiness about the erosion of actual film from the “filmmaking” process. As an editor, I had plenty of horrible times dealing with all the problems shooting on film and editing on computers (I’m looking at you keycode and telecine!). With high quality video those problems, while not gone, are infinitely more manageable.

But this $80 35mm film camera might make me rethink my stance. The LomoKino shoots on standard 35mm still camera film rolls – 144 frames at a time, shooting at 3-5 fps. Here’s the website.

It’s handcranked, and very very widescreen. That’s how it fits so many frames per roll, because it’s such a short image on the filmstrip.

After you shoot, you can play back on the (included in the $80) LomoKinoscope viewer. It’s like a viewmaster in that you point it towards a light source and look through the viewer. How cool is that?

Here’s a video of some stuff shot with it.

Again, how cool is that?

    very cool…I have been doing a little experimenting with the 7D in burst mode…this video was my inspiration. Similar look just digital…I’m more partial to film though and the aspect ratio is nice.

    check out about 54sec in the plane footage looks great.

    The resolution makes the video super HD and vimeo doesn’t do it justice. but Interesting stuff though.

    The burst mode stuff looks really cool – especially some of the early stuff as you’re walking through the curved hallway and the sides are coming at you. Beautiful!
