Lomography has launched the Lomo’Instant Automat camera on Kickstarter, where it has already exceeded its $100k funding goal with 34 days remaining in the campaign. The Lomo’Instant Automat is, according to Lomography, an instant camera with two modes: an Automatic Mode that automatically adjusts shutter speed, aperture, and flash output, and Bulb Mode for long exposure shots up to 30 seconds in length.
Lomography describes the Lomo’Instant Automat as ‘small, yet mighty,’ able to shoot in a variety of situations including low-light environments. The camera features a built-in lens with a focal length equivalent of 35mm, a remote control lens cap, a dedicated exposure compensation button, the ability to enable and disable the flash, support for multiple exposures, and an LED exposure counter to track how much film is remaining.
The camera will be available in four colors – red, black, white, and yellow – and is compatible with a wide-angle lens, fisheye lens, ‘close-up’ lens, and interchangeable color gels. Says Lomography, a ‘nifty box’ of goodies with things like magnet stickers and photo clips are included with every camera.
The company offers several backing options on its crowdfunding campaign, including a ‘super early bird’ model in white or black for $96 USD, a ‘Kickstarter special’ for $112 USD, and a ‘super early bird combo’ for $115 USD. The company anticipates shipping backers their items starting in December 2016.
