My Camera is DEAD....Lomography or NOT?

Yesterday after taking pictures of my Hina Matsuri when I wanted to turn on the power of the camera again, my the power button was not functioning and my dad told me that probably it's time to change it @_@'''
Sad...
Well, my dad is gonna buy the similar model but I got my interest set on lomography instead...

What I like about lomography is...

- it is a random snapshot whereby the pictures are captured into the film and you won't or don't have the chance to think how will the picture look like

- furthermore, the pictures that you take are pictures that you seldom take whereby there can be blurred ones and over-saturated colors which is an art that we missed when viewing the pictures from the digital camera's LCD

- besides that it's light weighted since most of the parts are made from plastic and even the lens which weights altogether 150-200gm inclusive of the film

- another reason that I love these lomo cams is that they are now made into stylish designs whereby they are suitable to be brought around casually as part of your accessories

- apart from that, films certifies that the pictures that you take are GENUINE and NOT EDITED!!

but...

the thing that I don't like about lomography is that the pictures needed to be develop to view the pictures and for myself...

it can be a trouble I would say for photo shops are taking in lesser film-picture developing business for most people are developing digital-camera-pictures which can take a long while for the last time when my dad took his last piece of film to develop...it took him like 2 weeks to get the pictures and the reason is that too little films to develop can be very costly and hence, they would need to collect until a certain amount of films before they can develop them @@

which...

has lead me to more considerations whether or not to buy a lomo...
