Lomography introduces Lomo’Instant square format camera


Lomography recently introduced a quirky looking camera called the Lomo’Instant Square. According to the photography website, it will be the world’s 1st fully analog camera to use Fujifilm’s square format instant films.

This instant camera comes with a 95mm glass lens that has an aperture of f/10 and f/22. Its closest focusing distance is at .8 meters and a filter diameter of 30.5mm. What makes this glass even cooler is the way it folds out, giving you the millennial feel. And since it will be using Fujifilm’s square film, future owners won’t have to worry about where to buy reloads.

The Lomo’Instant Square, which comes in 5 colors, has several features to up your composition game such as¬†unlimited multiple exposures, self timer, color gel flash filters, remote control shutter release, and bulb mode for long exposures (or maybe even astrophotography).

It also comes with an advanced automatic mode that can shoot from 8 seconds to 1/250th of a second, which helps the camera get the correct (if not perfect) exposures.

The camera will be needing 2 CR2 batteries to power its electronic timer, motorized ejection system, exposure counter, and other electronic functions.

This all sounds awesome and we’re actually excited to get our hands on it, unfortunately, it isn’t available yet. But you can back its production up on Kickstarter. As of this writing, the project now has 2,327 backers and has garnered $385,635 worth of pledges, more than their $100,000 goal.

If all of these push through, Lomo’Instant Square will hit shelves on January 2018 making it the best post-holidays gift for your loved ones.
