The Belair X 6-12: A Closer Look At The Lenses

5

Each of the 3 different Belair X 6-12 cameras comes with two separate lenses already in the package. Read all about its interchangeable lens capability below and check out our Hong Kong team goofing around and having a ball.

Together with a team of experienced optics engineers, the Lomographic camera developers have refined both a 90mm lens and a 58mm wide-angle lens for the Belair X 6-12. Each lens offers high quality photos while still being loaded with the Lomographic charm we all know and love.

Oh, and this is just the start: the Belair X 6-12 features an exchangeable lens system for ultimate experimentation and flexibility – you can rest assured we’re already working on more new and exciting lenses!

    Can't wait for a few more lenses to come out. Would love a wider aperture!

    @webo29 in the pictures i'm seeing that have a close up of the lens, I notice the 8 is next to a sun symbol and the 16 is next to clouds. I'm assuming that is f8 and f16. Is that reversed? shouldn't a f16 with a smaller aperture be used for a sunny day and f8 for a cloudy day? cloud.lomography.com/576/384/59/5458b88fb6acd4f914ef9608a9b…

    Oh just read there is a russian glass lens in the works! Very exciting. Would love if that lens had threading on it for filters.

    An auto exposure function for two apertures ? :-))) At least the focus problem on medium format will be minimized. Should be possible to operate this camera at f8 or f16 with a zone ( or guess ) focus then. A little bit of a waste though. The actual plus of medium format IS the shallow depth of field, which you can't get on wide-angle shots, using 35 mm film ... but that definitely requires wider apertures than 8 ;-))
