    Dreamy usually is related to the Diana. So a Diana 110.

  12. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    ...yeah, dreamy is usually Diana, that's a point... but why all the dots/circles/rounded stuff?

  13. kneehigh85
    kneehigh85 ·

    Hmmmm interesting. Wonder if it's a new 110?

  14. robotmonkey1996
    robotmonkey1996 ·

    Please, stop with the 110. It's inconvenient for anyone who doesn't live near a Lomography shop, and is incredibly expensive to send off to a Lab. Not to mention it is a pain in the ass to scan.

    brand new diana/lubitel camera?

  16. qlamerand
    qlamerand ·

    110 slide film

  17. livi

    something multilens and fisheye :) and I would rather take something 35mm :)

  18. lofiwill87
    lofiwill87 ·

    a 110 multilens camera that uses 110 slide film

  19. guanatos

    soemthing small?

  20. dragontw
    dragontw ·

    Please no more Fisheyes or 110 !

  21. theyremorerectangular
    theyremorerectangular ·

    A 110 Holga or 110 Lubitel would be good.

  22. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    @theyremorerectangular: There are already 110 Holgas.

  23. myfolkway
    myfolkway ·

    @theyremorerectangular That's right, 110 Holgas already exist, and a 110 Lubitel would NOT be good at all. What an idea !?
    For me, the clues are related to children. So, something small, colorfull, a toy camera maybe.

  24. 110isnotdead
    110isnotdead ·

    Gotta be something to do with circles. I'm guessing a fisheye, multilens 110 camera with a color gel filter holder. Yup its gotta be that. lol

  25. theyremorerectangular
    theyremorerectangular ·

    @saidseni, @myfolkway I already know about those 110 holgas, I meant one that looks like an average 120 holga but smaller and that takes 110 film. Someone must agree that a 110 TLR like a tiny lubitel would be pretty good.

  26. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    @theyremorerectangular: Tiny Lubitel? So cuuuute! :)

  27. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    @myfolkway: Yes... I do get the kids theme in the pictures, you're right... except for the fisheye picture with the room number... by the way, is that a building or a boat...??? These mysteries kill me!

  28. saidseni
    saidseni ·

    Checking all the pictures again I would say.. it's a fisheye baby!! But that already exists... more clues, please? :)

    "dreamy" = diana
    a lot of the shots are close ups = macro ability
    games/kid related photos = "baby camera" as Lomography calls its 110 cameras
    multi lens photo = self explanatory
    fish eye photo = self explanatory

    sounds like a frankenstein camera!

    But with the new "Be square flash rumble"... I'm thinking that it'll be a baby Diana camera.

  30. litumai

    yeeeeahhh!!! agreed! baby diana camera! sooo excited!! :)

  31. simonesavo

    Diana Baby 110!!

  32. nuo2x2
    nuo2x2 ·

    guessing it would be any camera with macro ability, it's about time!
    anyhoo, why so many guessing this would be a 110 camera?

  33. raylemon
    raylemon ·

    A Cube Camera?

  34. jaminsemirang
    jaminsemirang ·

    circle or rounded objects?

  35. ucinz
    ucinz ·

    @robotmonkey1996 +1 of your comment

    just new camera, or lens maybe.. not about the "baby" 110 camera again.. Behind it's cuteness and fairly cheap price, it's really hell to find that film type in local stores and scan it in here ._.

  36. mario-salvenmoser
    mario-salvenmoser ·

    @ucinz @robotmonkey1996
    why the complaining? there's no need to buy and use 110 cameras or film if you don't want to!

    i'll go with the baby diana 110 tip ;)

  37. giovannidecarlo

    BABY DIANA 110 ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  38. schemerel
    schemerel ·

    I think it's 110 slide film or something. Not quite sure but I think its film because of the film subscription mystery.

  39. jelencitta
    jelencitta ·

    macro lens?

  40. the_odd_one
    the_odd_one ·

    There were a heck of a lot of circles in those photos... Plus, their use of the word "bubbling" in the phrase "It's been a while since we aimed to get your curiosity bubbling..." is getting to me... I dunno, maybe something to do with a new lens or camera that involves circles?

  41. lokified
    lokified ·

    Did no one else notice that everything in the photos started with D? Dice, dominoes, doll, dandelion, daisy...

  42. george97

    omg I know exactly what it is! A Power Rangers themed Diana or Lomo....oh guys at Lomography you finally listened to me and I don't know how to thank you. This is going to be so great I just don't know what to say. Thank you so much!

    Something that lets you get really close. Either an adapter or a camera with extended focus. To do a good job it would need reflex viewing.
