This is THE camera that puts all the other cameras to shame

No, contrary to popular belief, Lomography does not mean your Lo mo (mother) has a graphy. Cause that would just be so so wrong..

So, other than your mother what's lomo?

(stolen off wiki)

Lomography emphasizes shoot-from-the-hip photography. Over-saturated colors, lens artifacts, and exposure defects are used to produce artistic, abstract effects and are prized by practitioners. Others use the technique to document everyday life because the small camera size and ability to shoot in low light encourages candid photography, photo reportage and photo vérité.

Rules of Lomo:

Take your LOMO everywhere you go.
Use it anytime - day or night.
Lomography is not an interference in your life, but a part of it.
from the hip.
Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as
Don't think.
Be fast.
You don't have to know beforehand
what you've captured on film.
You don't have to know afterwards, either.
Don't worry about the rules.
The results? Trés cool photography reminisence of the pop art/vintage photos era. The "Don't think, just shoot" is a good enough reason for all the shots to turn out as imaginative, creative and cool.

Because I don't own a Lomo (yet), couple of examples blatantly stolen off the Lomo society webpage:

Surf to their website for more examples but I've gotta get one of these! Look at how cute it is!!!
