After spending some years in "the discontinued film wilderness", we are pleased to announce that the Ilford SFX super premium special effects film is back. Using an "extended red range" this film mimics the insane look of infrared films - without the expensive and complicated development. Slap a red filter onto the end of your lens (or just hold one in front) for an even more dramatic effect. Plants and foliage have a strong white glow and skin tones take on a supernatural appearance.

Inspired by summertime in bloom, the new Lomo’Instant Kyoto Edition is the latest addition to our creative instant photography line-up! With its intricate floral and peach design, this special edition camera is reminiscent of beautiful summer sunsets in Kyoto, a city adored for its picturesque shrines, temples and nature scenery.
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
