Setting out to bring the next generation of cameras to the market, California-based Lomography launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for the Lomo’Instant Camera. The company originally sought out $100k for the camera, and has excitingly raised $507,828 from 4,139 backers. The brand new device is considered the world’s most creative instant system that has out of this world features. Unlike a typical photograph, Lomography states an instant photo is considered a “real object” that a user can physically share of hang on a wall. The company stated, “We set out to design the ultimate instant camera.
Lomography makes weird cameras that take weird pictures – on purpose. The New York-based company is famous for their work at rebuilding old fixed-focus camera styles that produced photographs that were a cross between a Soviet-era crime scene snapshot and Henri Cartier-Bresson’s street photography. Now the company is looking to launch the Lomo’Instant, an camera that uses special lenses and Fujifilm Instax Mini Film to take cool instant photos. The Lomo’Instant looks like no other instant camera. It comes in multiple colors and styles and features multiple modes including color filters, fisheye shots, and infinite long and multiple exposures. It has a maximum aperture setting of f/8 and can go down to f/22. The early bird model costs $69 for a black or white model with wide angle lens. A pledge of $160 gets you the camera in black or white with plus fisheye and portrait lens attachments and a flash.
