Lüders: Lomo-style video

Last post was about Fredensborg with three cheap Lomo Experimental plastic lenses. Shortly after visiting Fredensborg, I went to Lüders konditag (Fitness Roof Lüders ), in order to make lomo style videography. And what a joy – again – to work with the Lomo lenses.

As mentioned in the previous post, the Lomography Experimental Kit consists of three lenses for Micro Four Thids: A fisheye, a 12 mm wide angle (24 mm full frame equivalents), and a 24 mm (48mm full frame). The lenses have all the flaws You normally avoid: Lots of vignetting, soft corners (and center) and chromatic aberration…

And with all those flaws, You might as well lean back and put Your camera in the most automatic mode as possible (although the lenses are fully manual lenses). The lenses have a fixed aperture of f/8, and for a video in 25p, set the shutter speed to 1/50 and put the ISO on auto.

So I let my Olympus OM-D EM-10 iii take care of the settings, and shot as I pleased. Afterwards, I did a quick edit without adjusting colors or anything. And what a delight to leave the brain at home, and just whip something together fast afterwards;-)

Despite the careless effort, I really like the looks. Have a look at the video from Lüders Konditag, in order to see the type of video You get from the three Lomo Experimental Kit lenses on an Olympus OM-D EM-10 iii – all handheld.
