The Lomographic Society is a global organization that is trying to keep interest alive in film photography, and their latest effort is to revive the tradition of instamatic photography with their newest product, the Lomo Instant.
Dead simple to use, and very easy to get decent pictures while still flexible enough to allow for some wide ranges of creativity in settings of aperture and shutter speed that you wouldn't expect to find in an instant camera.
The Lomo Instant they sent me is a limited edition called the Sanremo, and the kit includes the camera and the "Lomo Instant Lens Kit". This lens kit contains a fisheye lens, portrait lens, and close up lens. These lenses give you even more flexibility than you ever had with that old Polaroid.
The Lomo Instant uses FujiFilm instax mini instant film, an instant film that is easily found online. It develops fast with strong clear images and is fairly inexpensive.
The last thing they include in keeping with the societies goal of reviving the lost art of manual photography is a set of cards with photos and tips on how to get similar results with your camera. They range from the very simple to some very advanced techniques in the 18 card set and are a very nice group of tips.
As with their last major project, the Impossible Instant Lab, this became a reality after a successful run on Kickstarter. This is why Kickstarter is such a great idea. It launches great projects like this into the world on a regular basis. Here at Fat Boy Heaven we love Kickstarter, and we will keep bringing new and successful projects to your attention.
