The Belair cameras let you shoot in three formats — 6×12, 6×6, and 6×9 — while also letting you enjoy the crisp details offered by medium format film. Since it accommodates interchangeable lenses, you have lots of room to experiment for those picture-perfect portraits!

Don’t forget that you can now shoot 35mm films with the Belair using the dedicated 35mm Back, so you can shoot unique panoramic portraits like what lomographer ccwu did in his photos below!
