After shooting two rolls of film my lomo super sampler died, it uses a rip cord to advance the film and it would no longer retract into the camera body. Lomo’s lovely customer service however have sent me a replacement, pictured above. Below are photos from the last roll I shot on my first lomo. Taken with no viewfinder, no controls and a camera that could barely advance the film, to say I am pleased with the results would only scratch the surface. Repetition has always appealed to me, the minute variations across a printed edition or the series of stills that make a film so these are perfectly attuned to my sensibilities. I do hope this second camera lasts longer and produces equally good shots.

I have another new camera in my bag, a fuji instax 210 and I love it. It is an instant camera like a polaroid but with a wider aspect ratio. I took it for a test run on Cockatoo Island and am very pleased with the results. My scanner is not brilliant and a lot of the glossy depth of the image surface is lost in these scans.
