Lomo film cameras have been enjoying a lot of interest from photographers looking for different effects from those produced by modern digital cameras. As digital cameras have got more advanced, their resulting photos have become more and more perfect. The interest in Lomo cameras is, for many, a response to this by photographers who see imperfections as an integral part of producing aesthetically pleasing images.

These types of images can make very attractive elements in graphic designs and fortunately, if you only own a digital camera, you can fake the effect using the popular free image editor GIMP.
