LomoKino Adapter Lets Your Phone Capture 35mm Movies Without an App

Lomography makes awesome still cameras, but they also make an awesome gadget called the LomoKino which is basically an attachment for your iPhone that lets you capture 35mm video with the whole scratchy, grainy, old video of the past. The cool part about the LomoKino is that it doesn’t use an app what so ever, instead it uses a small handle/crank that you have to crank in order to get the retro fix you desperately need.

If you want to get the small adapter you’ll need to go and check out the Lomography website and throw out about $25, You’ll also need to spend about $100 for the LomoKino camera and LomoKinoscope viewer. So this is an expensive set up for a regular hobbiest like me, but if you’re serious about your films, this is a really cool gadget! The video above shows you exactly how to use it and what you can do with it.

Overall, if you really want to take video with a 1950’s feel, this is probably the cheapest way to do it, you could add a 1950’s after effects, but this is a bit more “natural” since your camera will be moving up and down as you crank the wheel. [via The Verge]
