There will be a film screening tonight at the Lomo gallery in Greenwich village. The film will be a celebration of the Lomography family in Seoul, Korea, which I have no clue what that means. I am assuming the film was shot in Korea using Lomo’s new Lomokino camera which shoots video using a normal roll of 35mm… which is great idea, but good lord that can get expensive.
There will be food, drinks, and fun. I now Korilla was outside the gallery last night, so I am hoping a repeat of that. The film starts at 6. See you there.

Nikon D4 Hands On
Camera News / Design
Wow, just on the build side alone, this is a thing of beauty.
I love the minimal approaches everyone is taking these days that were more than likely kicked off by Olympus’ on going Pen series, but in fact Leica can be “blamed” for keeping it real all these years.
Nikon just announced their new P&S/consumer cameras and this one really has my interest peaked. I have been in the market for a new P&S+ and have always been told to go for Canon in that world, which the s95 has been steady on my radar. The P300 looks to be the proper opponent for said s95, but I am going to have to wait for a hands on to get my final decision. The great thing about both cameras are the features that give enthusiasts more options but less bulk than say Canon’s G series or Nikon’s answer to those.
Nikon definitely kills it with the low light functionality of their systems, and yes I do own a D90, so now this just got a bit tougher of a challenge.
See what you DPreview had to say about this little guy, you must learn.
Super official release from Nikon. It has been a long time since we have heard any major news from Nikon, but it seems they have been working hard on the D7000. Want Want Want.

Pocket Digital Camera SQ30mm
My new camera I am extremely excited about.
I am sure most of you know about the Digital Harinezumi by now. If you don’t, Japanese camera company, Superheadz, designed the digital camera to shoot as if it were a Super 8. The effect is pretty beautiful and gives the instant vintage feel.
Initially the Digital Harinezumi was import only which lead to high prices and scarce stocking. Urban Outfitters solved that problem by stocking it online for those in the states. Now I am not trying to say it is right or wrong to shop at Urban, but once they get their hands on things it is safe to say “on to the next one”.
This is the next one. I bought this in 学園大学 yesterday at a great little boutique camera shop called Monogram. The Poke Digi shoots both photo and video in the same Super 8 fashion as the above mentioned for a hundred dollars less. The camera is stocked with a Micro SD slot + micro USB for charging & computer connection.

Olympus Stylus Epic
This camera has been on the top of my list since I first read about it. Fans of Yashica’s cult status point and shoot T4 might be familiar with this, as there are constant comparisons between the two. Luck would have me find one on craigslist the week after I learned about it, unfortunately after the seller made an appointment with me he sold it before our meeting. So wack.
