Lomo’Instant Square: The First Analog Instant Cam for Instax Square Film


Lomography has just announced the Lomo’Instant Square, the world’s first fully analog instant camera that shoots Instax Square film (Fuji’s own SQ10 square format camera is a hybrid camera that mixes film and digital).

The camera has a compact foldable design that uses bellows, paying tribute to some of the popular cameras that were used in the history of photography. It features a 95mm glass lens (45mm equivalent in 35mm terms) that’s paired with a zone focusing system for easy focusing.

There’s also an advanced automatic mode that handles settings ranging from shutter speed (which does 8s to 1/250 in auto mode) and flash output.

Other features include unlimited multiple exposures, two apertures (f/10 and f/22), exposure compensation (+1/-1), a bulb mode for long exposure photos, motorized film ejection, a built-in flash with a guide number of 9 (m), a tripod mount, a minimum focusing distance of 0.8m (~2.62ft), a 10s self timer, an infrared remote control, and a self timer.

Here are some sample photos shot using the Lomo’Instant Square:

Lomography has launched this camera through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, which has already blown past the $100,000 goal. The Lomo’Instant Square will come in 5 flavors: black, white, brown leather, red leather, and a colorful look that’s exclusive to Kickstarter backers. There will be a $199 price tag hanging on these cameras when they hit store shelves, but Kickstarter backers can snag one for as little as $129.
