So many beautiful moments, so little time to snap them. There’s hardly anything worse in the world knowing that your chance to capture something slipped right through your fingers – maybe you couldn’t get your settings right in time, or perhaps you were too slow to rise to the occasion.
Nevertheless, it’s a sucky feeling to have, and one that Lomography has decided to rectify with their latest camera: the Lomo’Instant Automat – the ultimate automatic instant camera that is perfect for fuss-free shooting, whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned pro.
Basically, what the camera does is automatically adjust its aperture, shutter speed and flash output for you, meaning that all you’ve got to do is frame your shot properly and capture the moment. There are also plenty of cool features that make this beautiful camera a joy to use – there are attachable close-up, wind-angle, and fish-eye lenses, as well as pretty colour gels to add vibrancy to your shots.
That said, the Lomo’Instant Automat doesn’t just take great pictures, it’s a real looker too. Its vintage-looking frame alone will appeal to most people aesthetically, while there a total of four colour combinations to choose from – you’ve got minimalist white, red leather, solid black, and a special design that is exclusive to Kickstarter backers only!
Overall, it looks like the Lomo’Instant Automat could very well be the next instant hit (pardon the pun). It’s gloriously easy to use, and we like the fact that Lomography put the project out on Kickstarter to get the photography community excited. As far as instant cameras go, this looks like the real deal.
The Kickstarter retail price of the Lomo’Instant Automat will be $152-$203. The launch price will be $203-$271. Visit their Kickstarter Page to fund the project. Visit Lomography’s official website at shop.lomography.com/en/.
