    A flying camera?? That is cool :D

    First of all, a camera that could fly/be thrown up in the air without getting hurt when hitting ground/rocket camera - would be awesome. I believe it's a camera with a timer though!

    3,2,1 blastoff timer is a good guess, I always get the new product then they make it better or lower the price or put it in a bundle and I lose out, happened with spinner and the scan mask, the diana and the diana flash. oh well i'm still excited.

    Ah! rocket camera! I had one of these I built from a kit when i was a kid! took 110 film and C engines. testers?

    a rocket camera you can send in the sky and stars and take a panoramic picture from the earth and than it comes back right into your hands!! :)))))))))))

    I want a new LC-A with a plactis lens so bad:}}

  12. domyblue

    I would love a flying camera, I saw a digital one from Asia ages ago, but one with film is much more incredible and wonderful ... but also an Hasselblad would be an super-extra-mega-iper-amazing :)

  13. eatcpcks

    a camera with an air mask?

  14. iaki

    hmmm maybe a camera with a timer :D
    oh i would die for a tester :D :D

  17. shoujoai
    shoujoai ·

    For the spinner, they had a washing machine first... to show the spinning. Maybe it's some kind of panorama shoot that does not spin in a circle, but move from down to up?

  18. ndroo
    ndroo ·

    Whoa! Some new Orbit camera?

  19. essenz
    essenz ·

    incredible!
    it doesnt matter what it is, if it could fly, let me test it.... pleeeeeaaaaase ... :-) !

  20. gnarlyleech

    I hope it's the orbit camera. It was so cool when was introduced but I can't find one anywhere.

  21. pulex

    aaaa and again im so exited!! whatever it is please let me test it!! mummy i wanna be a rocket scientist!!

  22. mephisto19

    @ndroo there was an orbit in the shop long ago: orbit 360f !!!! i rediscovered it in my cam board...!

    I think they will re-selling this gem again. www.klangundkleid.de/lomo/orbit.asp

  26. cinzinc

    the orbit 360F?!!?

  27. basterda
    basterda ·

    Oh yay, good luck, Lomo-creatures! :)

  28. gnarlyleech
    gnarlyleech ·

    The rocket is a clue that it is the orbit camera. Space ships orbit around the earth. It was such s cheap camera too. I think they stopped selling it because of all the problems it had. Maybe they bought the patent and will be remaking it better than before.

  29. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    what about kind of a spinner but with a motor and wheels, so you place it somewhere, choose the movement it will go (like straight, a circle, a 8, etc..), a little timer.. and you choose the length of the photo up to 1 full film :D

  30. elvismartinezsmith
    elvismartinezsmith ·

    no floor only is too limiting :( huuum more clues please :))

  33. mochilis

    Wathever it is, I wanna be a tester too :)

  34. mishamisha
    mishamisha ·

    Perhaps something like that: www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Rocket_Camera

    But that would be too easy! ;)

  35. kjrunia
    kjrunia ·

    I think I've seen it in Utrecht, the new camera. But he walked too quickly--I couldn't catch up. :-(

  36. kjrunia
    kjrunia ·

    (Utrecht, the Netherlands; btw, sorry)

    How about one of those water bottle rockets that you pressurize then blast off? I belong to a camera club and we had an incredible speaker last month who flies remote control airplanes and does innovative arial photography that way. Very impressive.

  43. mikahsupageek

  48. satomi

    Wooooo, exciting! A new camera that has a shape of space shuttle! Or is it a camera that flies?

  49. chaoticsense
    chaoticsense ·

    I'd like to test it!! Sign me up!

  50. chaoticsense
    chaoticsense ·

    it would be relatively easy to see if Lomography has bought the patent of the orbiter.. I'll check it out when I'll get home!!

  51. copefan
    copefan ·

    i've read somewhere that the 360F was on its way back......... I'd love some new bits for the lubitel+ though!

  52. homer

  56. kylethefrench
    kylethefrench ·

    the 360F is shwag... bring back the LCA and Lubitel magnetic accesory lenses already, that was pretty much one of the best product LSI ever put out and replacing them with the cruddy 10 times the price wide angle ain't cutting it for me.

  57. metzgor
    metzgor ·

    i have no idea, but something for the lubitel+ would be nice.... wanna be a tester too!! pls!!

  58. gvelasco

    A camera on a balloon that you can trigger remotely somehow.

  59. bulletofmine
    bulletofmine ·

    looks like fish eye. but i think it's dragon's eye because it can fly !

  60. moonormoon
    moonormoon ·

    I want to be a tester!!! maybe 1st tester in Asia? = P

  61. future_analog
    future_analog ·

    cant wait!!! what could it be..

  62. claytonh
    claytonh ·

    Probably like a camera on a string that you can whirl around with a timer like one of those airplanes on a string.
    Plus I want to be a tester!

  63. jorgesato
    jorgesato ·

    yeah, be a tester would be quite amazing! :)

  64. eskimofriend
    eskimofriend ·

    I have no clue... but I'm sure I'm gonna buy one (even before a special or bundle comes out lol)
    hmmm how would you make sure a flying camera doesn't end up with a blue shot of only sky?

  65. future_analog

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
