Lomography has just released the LomoApparat, a film camera with a 21mm wide-angle lens with heaps of cool plasticky attachments that make it look even cooler. The camera uses 35mm film, has 10 aperture stops, a shutter speed of 1/100, a built-in flash and runs on 1 AA battery. It’s easy to use, but the real fun comes with the attachments.
The Kaleidoscope and Splitzer lens attachments give unpredictable experimental effects and you can create unique multiple-exposure compositions. There’s also five included coloured gel filter sliders, and a 0.2m close-up lens so you can get those macro shots.
If you’re thinking of buying this (either to use or to just have it sit pretty on your shelf — we won’t judge!), get the Neubau Edition, which is dressed in an exclusive Italian leather design. The colour combination and squarish retro styling make for one really stylish looking gadget.
Check out the sample pics below to see examples of what you can achieve with this camera (photos courtesy Lomography).
