Lomography introduces a retro instant-photography camera called the Lomo Instant
If you spend a large part of your life peeking through a camera lens, you’ve probably heard of Lomography too! For those without the know-how, this company has been pulling out vintage-inspired toy film cameras since years now and is quite popular among the shutterbug masses. The manufacturer has now announced its first instant film camera that will hit store shelves shortly. The new Lomo Instant will use Fujifilm’s Instax Mini film and will come with an eye-catching retro look. Lomography’s latest brainchild will include a built-in wide-angle lens with additional fisheye and portrait lens attachments. Complete with manual shooting modes, support for multiple exposures and long exposures, color gels for the flash, a tripod mount, and cable-release thread, this little device is perfect for those who have a taste for all that’s vintage, with a dash of contemporary technology.
Currently, Lomography is crowd-funding this project on Kickstarter and has already managed to gather nearly $100,000. With this, we hope to see the camera hit production lines soon and be made available by November, later this year. We love the Lomo Instant enough to keep staring at pictures of the camera for a couple of hours at a stretch. What we’d like to see now is just how well this one performs.
