Lomography La Sardina Camera & Flash — Western Edition


The Lomography La Sardina is a fun 35mm toy camera with a wide 22mm perspective, but this special edition, while gorgeous, is way too expensive.

Wide-angle lens. Easy operation. Includes flash. Uses standard 35mm film.

Very expensive.

Lomography La Sardina


When Lomography sent us a tin of sardines in the post with a message attached inviting us along to a sneak preview of its new camera, we were expecting some sort of waterproof model or perhaps even a fisheye snapper. The clue was in fact much more...

Quirky design, easy to use, wide-angle lens, variable flash

Glare on some photos, easy to knock flash switch

Overall, the Lomography La Sardina is a great little camera. You'll either love or hate the sardine tin design, but we're guessing that if vintage cameras are your thing then you won't be able to resist the kitsch element. The camera is neat and easy...

Lomography La Sardina review


Yes, this fish can really is a camera

Fun design ; Takes 35mm film ; Creative effects

Film is expensive ; Sometimes hard to tell if shutter has been released

Lomo's La Sardina is the newest camera in the analogue phenomenon's line-up. Boasting a compact size and a range of interesting designs, the La Sardina is, as the name pretty accurately suggests, shaped like a sardine can.

Lomography La Sardina ‘Marathon’ Compact Film Camera – Review


La Sardina is the latest offering from the analogue acolytes of Lomography, a 35mm film camera with a super wide-angle lens and all the fine design trappings of a sardine can.

Unique design ; Simple and fun ; Wide-angle full-frame shots

Expensive for what it is ; No flash with this version ; Plastic isn’t trustworthy

Whether or not Lomography is for you will largely depend on your susceptibility to kitsch, but don’t dismiss these cool little cameras as mere gimmick, I suspect a return to analogue roots would be a reinvigorating change of pace for many. And if...
