Yesterday, Lomography was proud to unveil its newest camera, the gorgeous, medium-format bellow camera, the Belair X 6-12, and we’re happy to report that it’s making waves in photography circles around!

“Holy moly! Where did this come from!? Out of nowhere, Lomography just announced a new medium format film camera — and not just some medium format film camera. […] We here at The Phoblographer love film photography and are very excited about this new medium format offering by Lomo.” — The Phoblographer

“Just because a camera has bellows doesn’t mean it’s vintage.” — PetaPixel

“Those iconic camera folk at Lomography are at it again, this time delivering a camera that is capable of capturing photos in three different formats. […] As is the norm with Lomography cameras, the Belair X 6-12 uses film and is modestly built in terms of size, while the very design of the camera is sure to get admiring looks, even before you’ve shown off your prints.” — Pocket-lint

We love medium-format photography. That’s why we’ve developed the Belair X 6-12; an entirely new 6×12 film camera that will bring an amazing level of lens quality to Lomographers. This stylish jet-setting camera combines all the stunning features of a panoramic, medium-format camera without the excessive size. Pre-order now and get 30% off the price!

    This looks like it's going to be a blast. I like vintage cameras and shoot with them often, so to have an auto exposure folding medium format camera is already novel in itself. But all the other cool features look like it will make this a dream camera. I can't wait!
