Lomography, the company that has been holding down the fort on film photography, is outing their new La Sardina Splendour camera that is a bit of a fusion between a design appealing towards 1940’s sailors and street photographers. The camera (and to be honest, all La Sardinas) harken back to the design of the Kandor Candid: and in fact the two look strikingly similar. Hence the reason why it looks like a Sardine can.
This camera comes bundled with Fritz the Blitz, the same flash that came bundled with their Virginia is For Lovers edition. The camera is actually quite interesting and fun to use for street photography. Specs and images are after the jump.
