Turn the thumb wheel located behind the shutter release button until it stops at the next frame.

Note that on your model the MX button (Multiple eXposure) to the left of the thumb wheel often gets stuck and prevents the film from advancing. The button should be firmly to the right when not in use. If the MX system is broken there's nothing you can do as the parts cannot be repaired or replaced. All LOMO and Holga models are extremely cheaply made plastic "toy"cameras and are not designed to last. Most have a maximum design lifespan of ten to twelve rolls of film, the FishEye model is designed to last just half that. It's only in Western countries that these models sell for ridiculously high prices, as an example my Lomo FishEye cost me 48 Hong Kong Dollars (that's just under GBP£4 or just over US$6). Back home in the UK they sell for ten times more.

The above explanation is not meant to be disparaging about your camera, but is just to illustrate that these cameras are really built from the start as disposable cameras which have the added bonus of being reusable a few times so cannot usually be repaired when broken.

Hi can you help me with my lomography instant camera


If the battery did not dislodge, then the fall did some damage to the camera. Repair may just not be cost effective.

Camera is broken if it is not working after reinstalling the batteries.

Hi, when I take photos by my recesky there is always white small area at the left side of the photos.


Ah,the joys of lomography! You apparently have a light leak somewhere on the right side of the camera. If there are any joints, try covering them with black electrical tape and shoot another roll to see the results.

Or learn to enjoy the sometimes-unpredictable art of lomography.

Iana mini rewind crank not spinning when advancing film


If the film is advancing you do not have a problem. It may be that the rewind button does not actually spin when you advance the film, because if it did and you have something caught on it when you are trying to do so you could really mess things up. Really, the rewind crank may only visibly spin in one direction.

My diana 20mm fisheye cant separate from my canon slr mount, please help.


It was probably just screwed in too tightly. The only solution is to keep trying to unscrew the mount. Luckily the mounts aren't too expensive. You might have to bite the bullet and buy another mount.

I put the film in my camera backwards(with the tail of the film facing to the left) and i cant get it back out. when i tried pulling up on the rewinder thing part of it snapped off


If it was just the folding lever part of the rewinder which has broken off then you'll need to use a flat bladed screwdriver or the tip of a knife to lever up the rewind knob sufficiently to pull it up and open the camera.

If you've broken any more than that, then your camera is unrepairable. Spare parts are not available for your camera as it's only designed to last for six rolls of film. Even regular Lomo and Holga models are only intended to last for a maximum of twelve films.

The wind-on cog doesn't work


Check that you haven't accidentally left the camera set to multiple exposure mode. This is set using the button next to the film advance wheel (marked ME) and is only cancelled when the next photo is taken.

If that doesn't fix it, then your camera is broken and will either need a repair or exchange. Unfortunately it's a VERY common fault with this model (all LOMO's are very poorly made) and unless you can get a free repair under warranty or an exchange/refund then you'll have to carefully take it apart and try to fix it yourself. It's not exactly complicated inside, but it's also not designed to be repaired...

If you successfully repair it, then never use the multiple exposure button again: it's almost designed to fail :-(

Good luck.

I just purchased the Zeikos fisheye lense for my 50mm Nikkor lens and when I attach it, it doesn' take fisheye photos - just regular with some distortion around the edges... am I using this incorrectly?...


The 50 mm lens is a full frame lens, and the D80 is a DX camera. This means that the 50mm lens puts an image out that is bigger than what the D80 can "see". The good part of this is that the D80 (and most of the other Nikon DSLR's) use only the image from the center part of an older lens. The bad part is that if you put the fisheye filter on it, the fisheye effect that is mostly seen at the edges of the lens doesn't show up on the D80 sensor. If you could put the fisheye filter on a DX lens, it would give you the full effect.

Like to fit my bronica fisheye p e into nikon f 5 camera


The lens you're refering to is the Fisheye-Zenzanon-PE 30mm, yes? As far as I'm aware no Bronica ETR > Nikon F adaptor has ever been made, and if one was to be it would be rather cumbersome.
You're probably better off selling it and using a Nikon Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm 1:2.8 in its place.

Reverse fisheye!!


you are going to need to replace the convergence board assembly. It is available at http://www.samsungparts.com/part_detail.asp?catalog%5Fname=Parts+and+Accessories&product%5Fid=BP95%2D00142P&search%5Fmodel=HCN653W. Also get the service manual, as you will need to do some touchup convergence and reset the perfect focus setup again If you have the technical ability. If you do, great! If you do not, these service menu alighnments can mess up your set, so take no shortcuts. Good Luck
