Any Time, Any Place – Part Five

38

We’re so close. So very close that today’s clue to the upcoming Lomography product is a close up shot. Does it confirm your guesses? Or were you way off the mark all along? Now’s the time to find out.

Details, details. What is that? Do you know? We do, but we surely can’t say. At least not today. But we can tell you what it’s not: it’s not a submarine and it’s not a rocket launcher. But that’s all we’re saying!

    it's a fisheye camera

    MACRO? :o

    I really hope its not a fisheye camera or another La Sardina model! It'd be nice to see something fresh and new. I like the idea of a 110 camera with macro and fisheye accessories & some 110 color film.
    If there's this much hype for just another fisheye camera... I'll be very disappointed!

    I would buy a 110 macro camera, but have no interest in another fisheye.

    a 127 film camera the size of an inkwell

    a 127 would be nice... but I doubt Lomography would put out a camera they don't carry film for.
    I'm hoping this is a 110 camera.... and that'd be their best marketing plan... they don't currently have a 110 cam for sale... just film.... seems like the logical next step. I really hope its something different than what's out there or what's been done as far as 110 cameras go!

    to me that looks like the mounting of a fisheye view finder

    for sure some camera that wont be that exciting... or if it is, it will cost a fortune like the LC-Wide :/

    … I hope it's not another fisheye. I can't think of a way to make yet another fisheye interesting or worth the buy, though, so I doubt Lomography would do that, especially not after all of this build-up. A 110 seems logical- and it's what I have my fingers crossed for. I don't think it HAS to be anything at this point, though.

    Suggestion for Lomography for the NEXT product: a snap-on motor with speed settings & extended film "magazine" for the LomoKino! With these things... one could keep their "crank speed" at a steady level... have two hands free for steadying the camera.... and the extended film "magazine" would give them the chance to make and sell LARGE capacity 35mm film canisters that would enable us to make longer films!

    a wonderful 110 film camera!

    It has to be a 110 fisheye called the "baby" or something.

  15. simonh82

    I think it is almost certainly a 110 camera, which is a shame as I think larger formats are definitely the way to go. Tiny grainy images aren't really my thing. I really don't know why they would go with a fisheye. They already have two perfectly good fisheye cameras (three if you count the Diana) and I really doubt you will get the features of the fisheye 2 into a tiny 110 camera.

    It makes sense to produce a 110 camera as Lomography are the only producers of 110 film currently, if you can stimulate demand, you've got a monopoly on the market.

    What is quite interesting, is that the image above appears to show wood grain under the paint/varnish. A wooden 110 camera?

    I agree with telephonewolf. I would love to see 126 film make a comeback. It would be more practical than 110 because it is actually 35mm film with perforations on only 1 side. It shoots a 28x28mm square negative. You can process it yourself using standard 35mm tanks & reels. There were some very nice 126 cameras made by Kodak, Konica, Minolta, Canon, Ricoh and Ziess. Ricoh even made the 126C-Flex SLR with interchangeable lenses. Bigger negative = bigger pictures.

    I was hoping for a remake of the Zenit F-21 or something like that, but using 110.

  18. aanum

    if it's indeed a 110 camera I hope they will include a developer tank for it because living in denmark I don't have access to anyone that develops 110 film in my area (maybe in Copenhagen but that's to far away for me)

  19. robotmonkey1996
    robotmonkey1996 ·

    hey Lomography... MAybe you guys could release an affordable camera that uses a readily available film format AND doesn't fall apart? Nobody reads the stupid hardcover books, and fancy packaging only hurts sales by raising prices. Maybe put that cash into a half-decent camera?

  20. polka-dot

    a micro Holga...?

    @robotmonkey1996: I do enjoy the books that comes with the camera, so at least one reads the stupid book :)

    Yup. 110 Baby Fisheye. =:3

    @robotmonkey1996: You seem to hold a gruge against Lomography, why? You do know you have other options out there, right?

    It is a small 110 Fisheye camera people! (seriously what is the fascination with Fisheye?) Nothing revolutionary since Superheadz already have the Demkin ages ago. I own both the baby Holga and the Demkin. I've never seen good or even "interesting" pictures come out of a micro 110. I think I'll stick with the big boys.

    110 film attachment for Diana or LC-A+

    it's a re-edition of the superheats demkin fisheye, i suppose... hypebeast.com/2009/04/superheadz-demekin-fisheye-110-camera/

    Do you receive the newslettler this morning? Try to cut the .GIF... a black camera maybe with metal peices... a little "B" (for baby?) next to the lens... and a preview from the box? with 110 film...

    Sorry for my english, i'm french...

  31. qlamerand
    qlamerand ·

    As @sevensisters said, in the animated gif from the newsletter, we can see some brushed aluminium. The same kind there is on the fisheye 2. So I'd say a 110 fisheye camera. Maybe called "Baby Fisheye".

  32. rushml

    Definitely a Fisheye Mini.

  33. drito

    Hopefully it's not a 110 camera. IMO 110 is irrelevant in most parts of the world, why develop film and a camera for it if it's on the way out? 110 has crappy resolution, hard to scan, expensive to get good scans from and is hard to get developed.

  34. realmustache

    it's a 110 fisheye. i was wrong. and right.

  35. superkulisap

    a tilt-shift camera?

  36. farinhalactea

    looks like a fish eye view finder, so... I gess it is a mini fisheye.

  37. deep79

    It looks yummy with a sort of polished steel surface.....kind of like a new ammo. Maybe it's a new monochrome lomo camera!

    Fisheye :(

    My Analogue Bucket List: Faster Than a Speeding Cannonball

    The new year is still young, but it seems as if it'll be over quickly. My organizer is already filled with entries until June. 2015 will probably be worse than 2014 when it comes to having time off so I could take some analogue shots. Anyway, there are some photography-related things that I really want to get done. It is probably best to set some goals if I only have very limited time.

    The New Petzval Lens 85 continues to captivate the hearts of many photographers from its debut a couple of years back. A perfect balance between form and function, this lens closely mimics the look of the legendary Petzval lens of the 19th century and delivers eye-catching images with its signature tack sharp center and swirly bokeh background. Many photographers from both outside and inside the Lomography community have raved about the New Petzval 85. In this recap, we look back at four community-written reviews.
