Lomography is crowdfunding its latest film camera, the Diana Instant Square. According to the company, this is the first Instax-compatible camera with a hot-shoe mount and support for interchangeable lenses. Lomography designed this model to work with any of the lenses compatible with the Diana F+, as well as Fujifilm Instax Square film packs.
The new Diana Instant Square camera features a selfie mirror, detachable viewfinder, film counter, an unlimited multiple exposure mode, a bulb mode for keeping the shutter open, adjustable aperture (F11, F19, F32), and an “instinctive zone-focusing system” that toggles between 1 – 2m / 3.3 – 6.6ft, 2 – 4m / 6.6 – 13ft, and 4m/13ft to infinity. A wide variety of flashes can be used with the hot-shoe mount.
Buyers have the following lens choices:
- 20mm fisheye
- 38mm super-wide-angle
- 55mm wide-angle (+ close-up attachment)
- 75mm kit lens
- 110mm telephoto
Lomography is currently funding the Diana Instant Square camera on Kickstarter, where it is offering a single Classic unit for pledges of at least $69 USD, which is 30% off the anticipated retail price. The company is also offering a Special Edition of the instant camera for pledges of at least $77 USD. Shipping for backers is expected to start in December for Classic units and January 2019 for Special units.
