Lomography just launched their latest creation on Kickstarter: The Lomo’Instant Square instant film camera. Following hot on the heels of Fujifilm’s Instax Square SQ10, the Lomo’Instant Square uses the same film as the Fuji camera, but puts it in a foldable, fully-analog body. We have a feeling lovers of Lomography’s retro style and shoot-for-the-joy-of-it culture will flock to the Lomo’Instant.
The Lomo’Instant Square’s tagline is that it’s the “world’s first fully analogue camera to work with Fujifilm Instax Square Film.”
Featuring a 95mm (45mm equivalent) F10 glass lens for sharper photos than the plastic lenses in some of Lomography’s toy cameras, the Lomo’Instant Square can be used in “advanced automatic mode” for hassle-free perfect exposures, or more creatively through features like unlimited multiple exposures or the 30-second ‘bulb’ mode.
Here’s a psychedelic intro video to get you acquainted with the new instant camera:
And here are some sample photos captured on the Lomo’Instant Square:
The Lomo’Instant Square has only been up on Kickstarter for a few hours, but already it’s blown past its $100,000 funding goal and the number just keeps getting bigger with every reload. In other words: this camera will definitely get made, but there is still a good reason to order yours today if you’re interested.
Lomo is offering a special 35%-off-retail discount for everyone who orders the Lomo’Instant Square during the first 24 hours of the Kickstarter campaign. That means you can get the White or Black versions for $130 instead of the $200 it will cost you when it hits shelves early next year.
