Taking photos digitally is easy – right?

But what about the good old way of analog photography?

Is it outdated? Are the old (analog) cameras hidden away in dusty cupbourds because they were replaced by new (digital) ones? Even we at the Fotomarathon Berlin have neglected the analog-section in recent years. BUT we couldn’t give it up completely! And why should we? The quality of those photographs is convincing again and again, with the Analogiker making it to the Top Ten nearly every year.

Well, at least there will be no excuses for not taking part this year like: „I don’t have a camera!“

We arranged a superb offer for YOU for the Fotomarathon-Day!

On the day of the Fotomarathon you can borrow one of the analog-cameras of our partner „lomography“. The choice of cameras available for loan by „lomography“ is listed below. The cameras are free of charge, you only need to leave a deposit to borrow a camera. You can shoot all day long, participate in the analog competition and submit your photos. Even without your own camera.

Pickup of the camera is after registration with „lomography“ until Friday night at the „lomography embassy store berlin“. You return the cameras as well at the „lomography embassy store berlin“ on Monday or to us at the end of the Fotomarathon-day when handing in the photos. For participants coming from outside Berlin and cannot make it in time, we would pick up the cameras and hand them over to you on Saturday morning.

The following cameras are available to borrow, limited to one per participant:

La Sardina Kamera – (Infos)
Lomo LC-A+ Kamera – (Infos)
Lubitel 166+ – (Infos)
Fisheye 1 oder 2 Kamera – (Infos)
Diana F+ Kamera – (Infos)
Diana Mini Kamera – (Infos)

We dare you: go analog!
