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.
From Lomography’s ingenious cameras, which produce vintage-looking photos, to Native Union’s Bluetooth handsets that look like old-school telephone receivers, all the tech in this sale has a retro vibe that’s evocative of an era long before Instagram existed.
