Lomography Konstruktor shots

Here are some shots from my first roll of poundland film through the Konstruktor.


The frame counter was useless and trying to compose shots through an f10 lens with a WLF was a challenge but here goes.

Re: Lomography Konstruktor shots

Shouldn't these be in Looking For Improvement?

Looks a fun camera to use and it has it's own, er, unique qualities. I think it deserves a roll of Velvia though.

Seriously, I rather like the composition in No 2.

Re: Lomography Konstruktor shots

Alf, all credit to you for building this and using it I admire you
It works ! I have to ask how much was the kit ?

Do you think Olympus have any competition worries ?

Re: Lomography Konstruktor shots

I've heard that these cameras freeze up after 37 shots, and have to be reloaded.

Re: Lomography Konstruktor shots

Are you sure you bought the film from Poundland and not the 99p Store?

Ohhh, too much detail, resolution, contrast and colour fidelity. Plus you've made the classic error of composing it thoughtfully and carefully. Post that on the Lomo forum and they'd shred it, absolutely shred it!

Love these. Interesting to see the shots from the Konstrukor. I'm a fan of Poundland film, too.
