Is there a Lomography picture style software for Canon 50D, are there custom camera settings I could use to achieve a similar effect?

As a general rule, professional cameras don't have cheap gimmicky settings built in, but there'll be plenty of cheap gimmicky software on the net that will do it – Dreamager Oct 7 '11 at 5:00
@Dreamager - While I totally agree, Lomo cameras can be pretty cool! – dpollitt Oct 7 '11 at 15:26
They can be fun, but they were essentially cheap toy cameras. I'll resist going into a rant about the extortionate prices now it's become 'trendy' ;) – Dreamager Oct 7 '11 at 15:35

No built in picture style exists for lomo on the Canon 50D camera.

Basically you just need to add a vignette, and do a cross processing style that you can achieve in most photo editing software. You also may want to add fake light leaks to get the full effect.

A tutorial for the effect can be found at digital photography school here.

If you want lomography-style pictures without needing to do any post-processing, you could also just buy a Holga lens for your camera, like or
