A large part of the charm of the Lomography Simple Use cameras is the nostalgic operation of what has been more commonly known as being a disposable camera. The brilliant thing about Simple Use is that they are not ‘single-use’, and as such, are some of the best value 35mm film cameras on the market. Cameras that can be reloaded and used time and again! The latest version to join the ranks is a straight-up collaboration with the Japanese street brand, Challenger, and is inspired by all things ‘American Garage’. Think cars, motorbikes, skateboards and music.

Founder, designer and pro skater, Satoru Taguchi, opened the Challenger flagship store in Harajuku, in 2009 and has subsequently delivered a number of exclusive collections with fashion brands, artists, skateboarders and bike builders. The new Lomography × Challenger Special Edition Simple Use Camera comes with an attention-grabbing original Taguchi design and exclusive Challenger logo sticker shot on LomoChrome Purple film, which the camera comes pre-loaded with, too.
