As soon as I saw the Kickstarter page for this camera, I immediately felt the urge to buy one for myself, all accessories included. The Lomo’Instant Camera is the next best thing after the Polaroid, something the almost-6000 backers will be able to confirm. With 7 times the original required sum already raised, we can only wait for the funding to be complete and the world’s most creative instant camera system to hit the shelves. Only to be taken off those shelves minutes later. Because everybody will be buying one. Even the hipsters. Especially the hipsters.
[adsense300gray]Among the myriad of options available for customizing your Lomo, there are, in no particular order: one built-in Wide Angle lens with 0.4m closest focusing distance, additional Fisheye and Portrait lens attachments available, unlimited multiple exposures, three shooting modes, infinite long exposures, fun color gels that let you mix and match your favorite hues and transform your photos into pop artsy vintage stuff and easy 2 step focusing. This retro camera is diving into the wonderful world of instant photography, making scrapbookers everywhere squeal with joy. Called “the box for ultimate selfies”, the Lomo’Instant camera is the perfect tool for hipster narcissists and pseudo-artists everywhere! Take a picture of rocks and make it edgy. Add a bit of color and make everything seem artistic and deep. Stick ’em in your scrapbook and show off your amazing art skills that are absolute and unique.
Seriously now, this camera is pretty sweet and it makes a fun tool for parties, memory-keeping and other things I can’t remember right now. Analogue photography meets 2k14. We say: welcome.
