Lomography’s Latest La Sardinas Will Match Your Equally Hipster Attire


Lomography has a tendency to come out with new faces/skins for lots of their cameras the same way that Leica does. But in this case, they’re calling them dresses–which is a marketing term specifically aimed at the female crowd (unless of course you’re a dude who likes to wear dresses. That’s okay too.) The new dresses are coined Midnight Flamingo and City Summer (the pink being Flamingo.) The cameras are otherwise the exact same as the original La Sardina: which we reviewed a while back and we’d only recommend for the most patient and creative of photographers to make the most of it.

For those still interested, the La Sardina sports a wide angle 22mm f8 plastic lens that you need to twist, pull out, and twist back into place. Focusing is done via zone focusing essentially and the camera itself is modelled after old sardine can cameras. Of course though, the plastic used isn’t as sturdy as your average final resting place for fishies.

The camera can use a special flash coined as Fritz the Blitz. The flash is actually pretty damned good just like Lomography’s Diana flash. And you may want to considering picking that one up too.

Both cameras come in their own bundles. At the time of publishing this article, they’re not listed in the shop; but we’re sure they will be soon.
