In the early 1990s, two students from Vienna, Austria, came across the quirky Russian Lomo Kompakt camera. Inspired by the artful photos it produced (which had saturated colors, overlay effects, and a subtle, vintage-y graininess), they started creating new analog cameras — making an indelible impact on the world of photography. Pick one up and get inspired to tell your life story in pictures. Of special note is the Spinner, which takes 360-degree-view photos; it’ll be the hit of your next party. Other hits include the Diana, the Holga and the Fisheye.
