It was only a matter of time until Lomography tried to release their own Instant film camera. And today, they’re announced a Kickstarter for their own brand new Lomo’Instant cam. The camera is the first one to be developed to use Fujifilm Instax Mini pack film and have interchangeable lenses. The company is trying to create a system with a wide angle, portrait (which is actually 35mm), and fisheye lens that seems to be every bit as fabulously plastic as most of their products.
They’re saying that it has full automatic shooting capabilities as well as certain controls such as long exposure shooting capabilities and aperture control. The standard shutter speed is said to be 1/125th; which is a typical flash sync mode. You’ll also be encouraged to shoot with a flash and dampen the flash output accordingly using aperture settings. The camera also has exposure compensation of +/- 2 EV, a motorized film printing system, and a cable release.
From the Kickstarter, the came seems pretty damned affordable.
